Donna was an adoring daughter, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and Aunt, who was deeply loved by so many of her friends and extended family. She will always be remembered for her sense of humor, her generosity, and her compassion. Her most favorite ways to show her love was through her cooking, her conversations and her giving spirit. One of her greatest joys was being a member of the East congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Her faith in Jehovah was unconditional. She loved speaking of her hope for the future of a grand paradise on Earth where, “...death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away” (Revelations 21:4).
Survived by her children, Michelle Shenandoah (Leon Shenandoah III), Jason Millard, Chad Millard and Mallory Hill; Grand-daughters Erica Shenandoah, Ayla Shenandoah and great- grand daughter, Auriya Lambertson. A zoom memorial will be held in her honor. For information on the memorial please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
