Donna Grace (Myers) Loveless
Donna Grace (Myers) Loveless, 84, passed away Sept. 9, 2017, at home.
She was born Sept. 28, 1932, in Jamestown, N.Y., to Vincent and Alberta (Wright) Myers.
She married Louis Gerald Loveless on Oct. 25, 1952, in Westfield, N.Y. Together they had six beautiful children, 13 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren.
Donna was a longtime member of the local IOOF Rebekah Lodge, where she held many offices and formed many lasting friendships. She had a strong sense of community service, always thinking of others. Donna was a member of the Stockton Fire Auxiliary and in her earlier days, she and other members dressed as clowns to entertain at community events.
She enjoyed gardening, playing card games, feeding the birds, looking at the beautiful view out her kitchen window and spending time with her family. She enjoyed beating her children at cribbage and dearly loved her little dog, Rascal. She especially loved going to the casinos to try her luck at the slot machines.
