Donna was employed at FMC in Homer City until her division closed.
On June 23, 1956, she married Clair R. Jones and started a family. She was the mother of 4 boys and always said she needed eyes in the back of her head. She was a very loving wife, mother and grammy. Her boys always came first and she thought of her daughters-in-law as her daughters, always there to help them out. She always enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and her great grandchildren.
She was a great cook and pie baker. You never left her house hungry she was always trying to feed you something, whether it be ham bone pot pie, or one of her apple pies. We have so many wonderful memories of meals and conversations around the kitchen table.
She enjoyed reading her books, watching CNN and going to the casinos gambling.
We will miss her dearly and cherish our wonderful memories of her.
