No matter how busy or what was going on in her life, Mom’s priority was her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She never forgot a holiday, birthday, or special day in their lives, she was our foundation.
Mom had a passion for cooking and she was lucky enough to be able to share this with many throughout her employment years. This passion continued even after retirement and was her chosen place of serenity. Her favorite thing was to cook with or for her family. Her other interests included re ading mysteries, word finds, playing guitar, playing cards, dancing, bingo, and going to the casino.
Donna Mae is survived by her six children, Nadine (Glen) Liuska, Wing, Karen (Tom) Dvorak, Berthoud, Colo., Gerald (Jill) Kordonowy, Dickinson, Pauline (Art) Kathe, Lyme, Conn., Dr. Raymond (Margaret) Kordonowy, Ft.
