My deepest sympathy to the family. She was a awesome lady and I will always remember her with love.
I spent much time at her home as Donna was a good friend. May the light she shined forever glow.

My summer memories of the Keweenaw always included Mel. From entire summers spent enjoying the beautiful sandy shores of Lake Superior at the camp in Eagle River when we were kids, bring my own children to visit when they were young, and lastly Gail's and my last trip with Donna in July. We will miss her immensely.
