Donnie loved her family and others sacrificially, always putting them before herself. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, a loyal friend, and a hard worker. She was a dedicated and faithful member of the Buford Church of God for over 50 years, and she committed more than 30 of those years to serving as the secretary and bookkeeper to many beloved Pastors. Her most favored times were when she was with family, but she also enjoyed shopping, traveling, fellowship with friends over a good meal, and most of all, she loved the Lord. Her love for Christ was always the most important, and she shared her faith with so many. Be it a warm smile, a warm meal, a listening ear, or a good hug, her encouragement always included, "I'll be praying for you". Her life lived, is her testimony. Living what she preached by setting an example of Christ's love for us, she was truly his hands and feet. She will be missed, but her memories will live on in so many of us that have been blessed by her light.  

The family will receive friends at Flanigan Funeral Home on Sunday, January 16 from 2:00 PM until the service.
