Obituary for Donna Lou Rea

Devoted to her children Lorrie, Kimberley, and Steven. Enjoyed spending time in Arizona with family and friends while visiting the winter retreat she shared with her sister Cheryl.

Dedicated to promoting literature demonstrated throughout her career in library book services, while specializing in encouraging the love of reading in children.

She will be missed by all who had the good fortune to know her, especially devoted friends Linda, Cy, Brian, Darleen, and all siblings in spirit.
