She was a Nurses Aide and had retired from Our Lady of the Elms Infirmary caring for the sisters. Donna loved the Cleveland Browns and Cavs but she especially loved having her family around her - Sunday dinners and holiday get-togethers. She loved and in return was loved by all.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by cherished daughter, Michelle L. Ballard; brothers, Donald, Leo, Louis, Gerald and Robert Fulkerson; and sisters, Ann McGovern and Dolores Butcher.

She leaves behind to mourn her passing husband, Charles “Al”; sons, Charles P.(Cynthia), Stephen, Keith and Gregory; daughters, Jane Ballard and Theresa Kohler; sister, Eleanor (Donald) Lancy; sisters-in-law, Marguerite (William) Holler and Donna Ballard; daughter-in-law, Jacqueline Lensing;14 loving grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and faithful dog, “Knuckles”.

The family would like to acknowledge Donna’s niece, Patricia Markham, as well as the staff at Hospice on Ridgewood for there loving care.
