Donna was a special person to many. After high school, I lost track of her. She lived in the West Plains area by many of us Cheney kids. One special memory is Donna saved my life back in Elementary School. We were taking swimming lessons together in Cheney, and I slipped off my swimming board and started sinking to the bottom of the pool. As I came up for my last breath, Donna reached out, grabbed my hair and literally pulled me out of the water. She honestly saved my life!!!! Thank you Donna and may you rest in peace. My prayers go out to you and your family.
