At an early age, Donna was raised in Lipscomb, with cousins and Mrs. Jean Lankford Parsons (Arlin) of Pell City, Mrs. Delilah Lankford Moore of Fultondale, Mrs. Beverly Lankford of Moody, and Mrs. Elaine Lankford Arnold of Scottsboro, and where Donna was a former “Miss Lipscomb”.

Donna was a great gardener (especially trees), and also a needlecraft artist. She could sew and craft anything. She was a wonderful cook, puzzle expert, and drove eighteen-wheelers for Bellsouth and Bruno’s.

Thanks for the wonderful care at St. Vincent’s Hospice, especially Chaplain Wendell Dodd and Helen Gaines, and nurse, Paige Miller. Special thanks to Judy Alford, the most supportive best friend that Donna could ask for.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the American Cancer Society.

“Don’t grieve or weep for Donna because she’s now united with the love of her life, “Red”.
