She went back to college later in life and received her Associate’s degree in Health and Human Services from North Shore Community College, graduating with highest honors. Donna began volunteering at HAWC while in school and was later employed there as the volunteer coordinator for nearly 10 years. She is survived by her husband, Robert, with whom she shared 37 years of marriage; daughters, Kristin Hentschel and her husband, Neil, Kari Goodwin and her husband, Daniel; sons, Kevin Bell and Sean Bell; and Dina Hernandez and her husband, Daniel.

Bob and Family, My condolences to you and your family. Based on the conversations we shared at work, it was clear that Donna was a stellar, loving, Wife, Mother and Grand-Mother who will be sorely missed. Rick Pratti
Will never forget Donna's love for our Granddaughter, Madeline,for the few years she was able. Such love that Donna, or Mrs. B as we knew her, became a part of the family. Much love to you all. David and Lesley Pitts.
To Donna's Family, I am so sorry for your loss. When I worked at HAWC, Donna and I became "partners in arms", there was a friendship that happened and I always cherished knowing her. When I would drive by your road in Wenham, I would always think, "hope Donna and Bob got their B&B and are enjoying being the innkeepers." I knew Donna would feed them well and enjoy chatting with the guests. We took painting classes together at AC Moore, pieces I still have and display. And I was over your house several times, enjoying the big famiy room with the woodstove, just sitting and talking. I am so very sorry. Donna was a wonderful woman who was taken too soon. Please accept my sincere sympathy on losing such a great wife, mom and grandmom. And to her kids and grandkids, she loved you all with such a deep love, there was never anything she wouldn't do for you. Cherish her memory...it will keep her with you always.
Donna and I worked together at HAWC for a number of years and we had a great friendship. We managed to get together for lunch after those HAWC years and I always enjoyed hearing about what she was doing and about her family. We had not been in touch for quite a while, I don't know why really, but I thought of her often. I was very sad to see that she had passed away. She was a special person and I know that she will be greatly missed. Debby Fletcher

A friend in Donna is a friend for life. We shared many happy times for several years. If you needed anything, Donna would do her utmost to help out, always leaving her needs at the bottom of her list. Strangely enough I awoke on 3/8 A.M. remembering a truly vivid dream that Donna telephoned me telling me "I'm really not dead you know", and laughing her contagious laughter. She will always be alive in all our hearts. To her family and all who loved her please accept my sincerest condolences. Linda Daly

Donna and I were not only cousins, but we were classmates and also worked on our first jobs together at Priscilla's donut shop. But most of all we were friends. I'm so glad we got to spend time together when I was there 2 years ago. That's such a precious memory for me. My heart goes out to all of you at this time of sorrow and pain. Donna is in Heaven now pain-free and watching over all of you. She's forever in all our hearts. Lots of love and prayers for all of you, Jacquie Pelletier Wiebe.
