Shortly after, they moved to Lynnfield, Massachusetts. Donna and Herb eventually divorced and as a single mother in Peabody, she worked hard to raise her sons and see them through college and onward to have families of their own.

Dear daughter of the late Larry & Harriet Drucker, aunt of Justin & Ashley Jarrin and Larry & Rachel Drucker. In the last few years, Donna brought her family on beautiful vacations to Lake George, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. Donna had so many wonderful friends who called and visited often in her final days, giving her such joy.

Donna loved great food, consignment and jewelry shopping, art, craft fairs, and day trips to beautiful spots in New England.
