    Dear Donna’s Family,
    What wonderful memories I have of Donna!
    While I hadn’t talked with her in many years, our last conversation, including a visit to her renovated Hydrostone house about 12 years ago, was as if we had only seen each other yesterday!
    I called for Donna everyday during our junior high years at Richmond school. If (most days )she wasn’t ready, I would have grand chats with Mrs. Spriggs. When we went to Bloomfield school for Home Ec, we often stopped off at Spriggs Bros. and hitched a ride home in the back of the truck! One time, probably elementary school days, we started a club, Dizzy Ducklings, held in the Spriggs house attic! What a lot of patience and acceptance was demonstrated by the whole family! Donna had a tough few months, for sure, but I hope you will be comforted by many warm memories and sharing. So sorry to have missed the funeral last Monday.
    With sincere sympathy,
    Sandra “Mitchie ” Bauld

    I am so very sorry to hear about Donna. Haven’t seen her or you since you came to Bridgewater for Florrie’s funeral. We did have many laughs while re-connecting there!
    Unfortunately I could not make it to the funeral (prior commitments).
    I will always remember our trips to the Ice Capades which included a stop at the Spriggs home for tea, stories and laughter with your mom and dad. Take care – Love Coleen (your 2nd cousin)

    I worked with Donna at Supply & Services. I admired her courage to sing to her own tune. May you find comfort in your memories of Donna.

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Donna. She hired me at DSS many years ago – so I’ve know her for a long time. Unfortunately I am out of town and cannot make the funeral, but my heart will be there with you all at this difficult time. With Sympathy,

    Diane, Vicki and Bobby,

    So very sorry to hear about Donna’s passing. A mutual friend sent a message today to let me know.

    While we weren’t close for many years, I do have many fond memories of our friendship.

    Please accept my sincerest condolences.
