I enjoyed talking with LaDonna at school in the lunch room. Also at grandparents day, then as a great grandma. I was blessed to have many of her grandchildren as their teacher. What a great family. La Donna will be missed by all who knew her. Thoughts and prayers to her family.

We send our love and sincere condolences to your family. Your mom was one of the most precious souls we have ever been privileged to know. Although we celebrate the fact that she now rests in the arms of Jesus, she will be greatly missed.

LaDonna’s light shined the brightest of any person I have ever had the pleasure to know. She was a caring gentle soft spoken lady that loved to share her faith with everyone she met. Rest well LaDonna you have earned it .

Love LaDonna. It was a pleasure to be her Pastor for 9 years. Her famous words were “ If the Lord Wills.” The Lord has willed her “home.” Our little dog Sissy loved her as LaDonna was about the only one Sissy would stay with. I’m sure LaDonna is talking Jesus ear off and I mean that in a good way
