    I was saddened to learn of the passing of Donna. She was part of our BCS family for many years. She was so full of life and laughter and was my dance partner at all of our functions. She has left me with many memories of our times together. Rest in peace Donna. I send my deepest sympathies to your family and friends. You will be missed but never forgotten.

    We didn’t really know Donna. But we were blessed to know her beautiful daughter Frankie. Frankie is one of the most genuine good natured people I’ve ever met. It’s obvious Donna did an outstanding job raising you. She will always be so proud of you Frankie as you continue to excel & blossom into a successful outstanding person! Love you lots! XOXO.

    For the Montalto Family, I have worked with your mom for the past 3 1/2 years. She was a beautiful soul inside and out. She very often spoke of her family and how much she loved each and every one of you.My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time and may you find comfort that she is now your guardian angel watching over.

    I guess God needed another angel, Mark, Marko, and Frankie, my heart goes out to you, “God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted”. Matthew 5:4.

    Mark, Marko and Frankie,

    Don’t think of Donna as gone away –
    her journey’s just begun;
    life holds so many facets –
    this earth is only one.

    Just think of her as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.

    Think how she must be wishing
    that we could know, today,
    how nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.

    And think of Donna as living
    in the hearts of those she touched…
    for nothing loved is ever lost –
    and she was loved so much.

    My cousin Donna brought so many happy moments in my life, i.e. shopping with her and cooking with her on Christmas eves, she left me with a treasure trove of memories. I will never forget her! Mark, Marko and Frankie, we are praying for you in this difficult time. May Donna’s soul rest in peace.

    Mark, my heart goes out to you and the kids. Donna was always one of my favorite “moms” at all the sporting events. She will be missed, but will never, ever leave you, you were the 3 biggest loves of her life. Sincerely, and with deepest sympathy.

    I have been working with Donna since 2012 and she was so special. She could me laugh for hours. No one will ever be able to fill her shoes here at Eliot. She was a huge part of making this place function and run smooth. She was always there to help anyone at any time and she will never be forgotten. I have great memories with her and I am still shocked by this tremendous loss. She was a true fighter I miss her so much. I send my condolences out to her whole family who was always her number 1. She loved her husband Mark so much, and her kids she was so proud of you both and everything you both have done. She will always be watching over you as your guardian angel. I will always remember you Donna and I am truly blessed to have gotten to know you.

    I’m deeply saddened by the loss of my forever friend Donna. We knew each other since we were teens. I’ll never forget all of the wonderful memories and fun we had together! She loved you Mark so very much. I remember your wedding like it was yesterday. Marko, Frankie although I never really knew you, she always talked about how proud of you she was and how much she loved you every time we got together. Theresa, I can’t even imagine how it feels to lose your child. Donna loved you so much.
    I’m certain she will a guardian angel to her family and friends.
    Donna will live in my heart forever. She is part of my soul. I miss sorely. I know that she is with our creator now and no longer suffering.
    May our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief. Please accept my sincere heartfelt condolences.
    Love always, Patti

    I got to know Donna when I would go to Auntie Theresa’s with my grandparents. I remember the great love story she told me about running into Mark after years and their eventual engagement. At her wedding we were in a circle doing one of those Italian “everybody turn to the left” dances and she suddenly popped into the circle next to me and said, “Can you believe this DAY?” She was so happy. She was the fun one, for sure, and was always so wonderful to be around. We will miss her loving warmth.

Send your condolences.
