She had remained in her home, with help from MaineGeneral Hospice and relatives, friends and neighbors, who surrounded her with loving care until she could rejoin her beloved husband, Bob, in heaven.

Donna was born in Dixfield on  Sept. 14, 1934, the daughter of Willard and Jennie (Newell) Stone.

She was an active member of Gardiner Church of the Nazarene for the last 37 years of her life. Before that, she was a member of Dixfield Church of the Nazarene. She read her Bible daily and loved singing hymns. She also was a volunteer for more than 30 years at MaineGeneral Rehabilitation & Long Term Care at Gray Birch, in Augusta.
