Donna lived much of her adult life in Three Lakes, where she spent many years performing with Skip Wagner, providing hospitality services, and karaoke entertainment at the Oneida Village Inn, until it burned down in 2019. Since then, she has shared her skills and talents with other local establishments. Donna also served for many years as an event planner for a consulting company, which satisfied her love for traveling the world. She was lucky enough to visit many countries.
