She married Jimmie Hill on August 25, 1956 in Canoga Park, California. Donna was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.

Donna enjoyed many jobs which included teaching at Tanglewood Early Learning Center, managing a Jack-in-the-Box and driving a semi-truck with her husband, Jimmie, which afforded her the opportunity to travel the U.S.
Donna was a poet, always signing her poems with “Given to the Plodding Poet”. She said the poetry came through her from God. Donna was a beautiful soul who loved unconditionally. Her long-time friend, Julie Gaylord, said “She was always THERE for you – listening and offering unconditional love. Lucky us!”

To the angels of mercy working in the East Wing of Live Oak Health Center, we cannot thank you enough for the wonderful care you gave our mother. The family will have a private celebration of life.
“Please help me go, hold my hand but not to hold me here,
Say a prayer, that you love me, and tell me goodbye my dear.”
Given to the Plodding Poet 2011
