  1. My heartfelt sympathy to all of Donna’s family. She was a dear friend of mine.
    We shared many laughs and good times over the years working at the College and our dinners out with other close work friends. This is a great loss to all of us.
    Her sense of humor and love for her family was such a joy to share.
    This is very sad news.

  2. My heartfelt sympathy to Donna’s family. She was a dear friend of mine, and we shared many good times over the years at the College and on our dinners out with close work friends. This is great loss to all of us. Her sense of humor and love for her family was wonderful to share.

  3. My sincere condolences to Donna’s family. I had many interactions with Donna at the college. She was a great lady.

  4. Donna made my temp job across the hall with Coy and Mindy a very pleasant experience. I was a rookie to the building, and she was a seasoned professional (with almost 20 years under her belt!).

    She was a funny, funny lady, and very unique. I liked her immediately. I will always remember her and my Tyler Hall work experience with affection, largely because of people like her. Sometimes the best people can only stay a little while here on this earth. Just enough time to make us laugh, create wonderful additions to the family line(kids), and change the world just that little bit that makes a big difference.

    God bless you, her family, and my condolences!

  5. My prayers are with the family at this very sad time. Donna and I went to school together and had many good times. She was a great friend and well like by many. I will always remember her beautiful smile and her love for life. As the class President, I know the Fulton High School class of 1963 mornes her loss. Another angel has her wings.

  6. The Fulton High School Class of ’63 will fondly remember Donna Olensky Fauler. She was vibrant…fun…loving. She will be missed.

  7. Ray, and the whole family. Our hearts and prayers go out to you. This is probably the hardest thing you’ll have to do in your lives. I am so sorry that I couldn’t be there. Donna and I were soroity sisters and really close friends at school and after. We shared secrets and sorrows. She was one of the first people to call me when I lost my Dad. Sometimes we didn’t see each other for a year or two and then we’d meet at the store or downtown . We would laugh and talk , catch up on news of our families & promise to stay in touch. We both knew that wouldn’t happen but for those moments we were together , it was like time had fallen away and we were girls again…giggling over boys and clothes & music. A part of me will miss her always…You are so lucky to have had her in your life…Know that she is smiling down on you…I can never imagine her any other way. Love to you all. Suzie Place
