Donna and John moved from Racine, WI, to Crossville in 2011 and to Lake Tansi a few years later. They became involved in golf, LTCA, and LTLC. Donna loved having garage sales as well as going to them. She worked as a hairstylist for 50 years, working the past seven years at FFG Good Samaritan Society. Donna loved people and cutting hair was her greatest asset. She loved to travel and buy beautiful jewelry. Some of her favorite activities were playing softball, tennis, racquetball, watching her lovely flowers bloom every spring, mowing the lawn on her rider, and talking to everyone on the women's 7th hole tee box.
She leaves behind many dear friends from Wisconsin and all of the wonderful people from our Lake Tansi and Sunset Ridge area in Crossville.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Donna's memory to the charity of your choice.
A very special thanks to Hospice of Cumberland County and Dr. Dirk Davidson for all of the kindness and wonderful care Donna received.
Crossville Memorial Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc. was in charge of the arrangements.

You were a "cut" above every one. I so enjoyed sharing your outlook on life and will keep you in my thoughts for a long time.

I am so sorry for your loss, John. Donna cut my hair every three weeks for five years, and in that time we became friends. She was always cheerful and friendly with everyone, and she will be greatly missed by many of us who have lived at Good Samaritan.
