So sorry for your loss. My wife and I had the opportunity and privilege to live in Massena for 18 months. During our time there we grew to love Donna. One of the memories that I (Marvin Palkki) had with Donna was during General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Donna was in the Highland Nursing Home. Because she could not physically make it to the church to hear the broadcast, I was able to bring my iPad to her room so that she could hear and watch General Conference. We were able to help Donna with her genealogy, which she enjoyed doing. Every day she would read her scriptures, the Ensign magazine and her paperback books. When we went to visit Donna on several occasions she would tell us what she was reading and what she was learning. She had a great desire to learn and to serve. She would want to know how the members of the Church in Massena were doing and she would faithfully make phone calls to some of the women to minister and encourage. We always felt uplifted with our visits with Donna. She was always willing to share. We love and miss Donna. Death is not the end of our progression. We know that Donna and her husband Richard will have the opportunity to be together forever. - Marvin and Karen Palkki

Donna was a very good person. I will never forget the many rides (and talks) to church Rich and I took with her. In fact, she was the one that took me to get my car, and then I was able to pay her back and do the driving. She was a kind soul, and I will remember her fondly, and with gratitude. - John M

I met your mom about 1961. She and your dad rented from my grandmother on malby Avenue.
We spent many evenings laughing and playing cards.
I haven’t seen your mom in several years but she was a wonderful lady who loved her family.
Please hold close your memories to help you through this difficult time.

I served as a missionary in the Massena Ward in the year 2018. She was such a light to everyone around her. I remember being able to visit her every week while she was recovering from her broken leg. We would go in and bring her pizza and talk and have fun little pizza parties. She is so funny smart, and beautiful in every way. She touched so many people in her lifetime, especially mine. God be with you till we meet again♥️ -Kelsie Anne Starkey
