Donna and Rolland moved a few times in their lives and every place they went, they found special people to share their lives: from Waupun, to Kenosha, to Waukesha and to Fond du Lac. They were also snowbirds in Florida. Donna was a social person who loved talking to people. She liked to drive thru Fond du Lac’s Lakeside Park and dine out at the local restaurants. She volunteered at the Senior center. In Donna’s later years, she would knit hats for the newborn babies in the hospital. Throughout Donna’s life, she loved playing board games, puzzles, cards, dancing, bingo, and bowling. She was a lifelong Packer fan. She loved watching all the local teams play. Her greatest love was for her family and friends. She loved being around her children and grandchildren.
