In the early 90s I moved to Belvidere with my family and was lucky enough to move across the street from Donna. She was very kind and welcoming. She was always so proud of her family especially her grandkids. I am so sorry for your loss. Donna was a wonderful woman and will be missed.

Dennis and Beth, We are so sorry for your loss. Though we were not fortunate enough to have known your mother, we are sure that she has left you with many pleasant memories and she will be sorely missed. Take those memories and cherish them forever and know that she is watching from the loving arms of Jesus. Blessings.

Dennis and Jeff, I know we have just gotten acquainted, but wanted you both to know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Dennis, Beth, and family, It is awfully sad to lose someone you love very suddenly without warning. I only meet Donna once, but Beth would speak about her quite often at work. I know that she was always willing to help whenever Beth needed someone to watch the kids so she could work. I was always so thankful for that. When I met her a little over a year ago, I was not one bit surprised by her spunk as Beth had always translated that in her stories. I'm sure she left quite the impact on many people and I know you all will miss her terribly. I hope that you can think back on memories and laugh and that it helps to heal your hearts quickly. Thinking of you all.

Julie, Dennis and Jeffery We are saddened to hear of your mothers passing. Donna was a classmate of mine at SwedishAmerican Hospital School of Nursing and we did many things together. I saw her at the recent banquet and we had a nice time catching each other up on children and grandchildren. She will be missed. Allen and Sheri (King) Peterson

Beth and the entire Hissong family. We are so sorry for your loss of your mother. We did not have the pleasure of knowing your mother but I am assured that you have many wonderful memories of her, so cherish them forever and be relieved of your grief knowing that she is now in the loving arms of Jesus now and forever. Blessings to you all.

Auntie Donna, I am so thankful for the support you gave me over the years, but especially the last three. I will miss your laugh, your phone calls, and our talks about good books! You are an amazing person.

You are the best mom a daughter could have ever asked for. I will always have special place in my heart for you that can never be broken. Love always your "juge".

Julie, Dennis, and Jeffrey, my condolences to you and your family. Our parents were close friends when I was very young and one of my fondest early childhood memories is going to the circus with my mother and your mother Donna. We were very lucky to have known her.
