Upon graduation she studied at Pacific University (OR) where she graduated with a BS in Therapeutic Recreation. During her years at Pacific she met some amazing people who stood by her side to the very end. A few years after graduation she started her career with the City and County of Honolulu where she worked her way up the ranks and finally retired as Kalakaua Complex Supervisor. Donna believed she had a firm grasp on life and that everything she did or encountered she found some humor something to chuckle about or a funny story to tell. She made every moment count like taking a fishing trip to Alaska, playing penny slots in Vegas or visiting Oregon to be with family. Oregon held a special place in her heart because this is where her nephew Landon lives. She was preceded in death by her beloved mother Amy.
