Born in East Liverpool, Ohio on August 10,1937, the daughter of the late Donald and Martha (Hendricks) Allen. She was a homemaker and a Rubbermaid Regional Manager and sales representative for many years, as well as working at Nancy's Fashions. Donna also helped her husband Fred, whom she married on December 27,1954, and helped to maintain the family farm. Donna was a member of the Damascus Friends Church, and the Friendship Sunday school class, where she taught Sunday school and helped with the church youth group, and volunteered her time wherever needed. Donna enjoyed baking, gardening, canning, freezing, crafting, word find puzzles and playing cards. She loved taking photos, but most of all, she loved taking care of Fred and her family. She also enjoyed her winters in Florida, as well as traveling with Fred. She will always be remembered for her wonderful smile and her ability to make you feel so welcomed in her home. If you stopped in, she insisted you ate something or took something home to enjoy later.
