Donelda was a member of the Order of Eastern Star, Home Bureau–Winthrop and the Grange-Winthrop. She volunteered with American Red Cross and Serenity House of Victor. Donelda loved to garden and has been known to have a green thumb that allowed her to bring back many “thought to be long gone “ plants. She enjoyed going out to dinner with family and friends and was an avid movie goer. She was never without a sewing machine making something for all the families and for others as well. Most of all, she loved all her children and gave of herself with a very huge heart asking for nothing in return. In memory of Donelda, always extend a hug and “ I love you” when you say goodbye and goodnight.
Donelda’s Memorial Service will be celebrated Saturday March 30th 1p.m. at Jarmusz Cotton Funeral Home (26 Maple Ave. Victor, NY). Interment private. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Serenity House Of Victor (1278 Brace Rd Victor, NY 14564) in her memory.
