   Dona was born on May 3, 1930, in Sandusky, OH, the daughter of Clifford and Augusta (Stamm) Remington.  She was a graduate of Sandusky High School.  In her earlier days, she had worked at Woolworth's  and later became a full time mother overlooking her three wonderful boys.  Dona  enjoyed dancing, playing cards, spending time with friends, and was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who loved spending time with her family.  She was an outstanding artist, and all who knew her would attest to her pure heart and kind soul.   She'll be remembered for  always putting others before herself.
   She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and had been involved, in years past, with the Garden Club and other civic activities.
   Dona is survived by her two sons, Randal W. (Ana) Didion and Kevin D. (Tamara) Didion, both of Huron, Ohio; 7 grandchildren, Jaime Didion, Scott Didion, Blair Didion, Aaron Voltz, Karl Voltz, Joshua Didion, and Jacob Didion.

Dear Jaime and Scott,
I am so sad that you have lost your grandmother. I didn't get much opportunity to really have time to know her well in her short time here at the Commons. But we did have a chance to talk about both of you! It was all good. She was quiet and shy, but so sweet and pleasant. She will be missed here by a lot of us.
If you ever get over here, please stop by my apartment--117--- and say hello. My memories of SPPS are so pleasant.
Love and prayers,
Carolyn Barrows
