LaDonna worked as a CNA caring for many grateful patients in Blue Springs, Missouri.

She enjoyed time crocheting and loved to sing along with her favorite ‘80’s music. LaDonna was of the Catholic faith. She liked to read and loved the thrill of a good horror movie. LaDonna liked to take her kids and grandkids on camping and fishing trips, giving them a love of nature.
