Donna was my classmate at Sacred Heart High School. She showed a remarkable ability, even at that early age, to get along with everyone. Her sense of fair play was apparent on and off the basketball court. Her life as an educator was a positive influence on countless youth. She will be missed by all who knew her.
I met Donna when she taught a year at St. Ursula Academy in Cincinnati. She was, then, my connection to CSS when I was job hunting in 1987. She let me know about a new position that was opening in the School Counseling Program. I had 15 happy years at CSS, and Donna was part of that! You all have my sympathy and prayers.
I plan to attend the memorial Mass at Cristo Rey. I hope to connect with family there!
Blessings! – Margie Efkeman, OSU
I meant to say Donna, not Connie. I had so many “older sisters” that treated by younger sister and I like family.
Sorry for your loss. I got to know Connie in David, KY when I was young and my parents moved our family there. Then over the years at the many reunions. I remember her wonderful laugh which was very contagious! Prayers for her entire family during this sad time.
