We will miss your feisty spirit.  I know I will see you again when that last trumpet sounds my dear friend.  I know you are having a ball!  I'm sure you are dancing and swinging!

Donna had a great spark and passion for history of Monterey, its people, and loved to share it with the visitors at Colton Hall. Over Sunday noon coffee which we brought to her, she shared with us stories of her family, especially her father and his life as a fisherman. She was a great friend to our son. We will miss her very much.

I miss Donna.  I miss the treats and kind words she would leave me on my days to work.  Just a few weeks ago a large group came in and asked about Donna.  Donnas’ stories told a unique history of Monterey.  In the museum there is still the bronze fisherman casting his nets.  No one can really be replaced.  Last year she was very sad that she did not get to go on the boat to the place where her father was lost at sea.  I am glad that she will finally get to go there. Donna must have loved her father very much.

Donna was my partner for over ten years as museum guides at Colton Hall Museum. We always said that we were a team, partners together in sharing a passion for history, life and people. It is truly sad to have lost my teammate. Donna approached people with a joy and passion.
