Henning Jr. on June 5, 1948, in Saginaw, Michigan; he preceded her in death on January 18, 1963. She loved butterflies, birds, and crafts. Wherever she lived, if there was a patio/balcony it would be adorned with solar lights, sparklies etc. She enjoyed flower gardening if space was available, at her apartment. She enjoyed traveling, family gatherings, playing cards, and playing the piano/organ. Donna learned to play instruments by ear at a young age and enjoyed playing the organ for church, event gatherings, and in her later years at the senior housing complex she lived. She would open her window/door for the music to filter out so others could enjoy it also. With limited vision, she continued playing till the end.
