Donna was adventurous, loved to have fun, and she thoroughly enjoyed laughing until it hurt. She loved the outdoors and sports, especially tennis and swimming. Anyone who knew Donna knows how fondly she recalled her days swimming at Cascade Plunge in Birmingham. She enjoyed gardens, any garden really, but she enjoyed growing vegetables and tomatoes the most. She loved to cook. Her venison stew was second to none. There wasn’t even a close second place to be sure. Donna loved music, especially live music, and ranked the trip she took with her brother Tommy to see B.B. King play live as one of her most cherished memories. She had a big and compassionate heart, and she would want anyone who reads this to know that God loves you more than you can ever imagine. She will be greatly missed.
