Donna OConnor Obituary, Death – Both my sister Donna Haskins O’Connor and I are going to miss our baby sister Patti Custer a great deal, and it is going to be quite difficult for us to say our final goodbyes. She passed away suddenly on the evening of Wednesday, December 21, due to circumstances that cannot be explained. She was one of the kindest, most sensitive, caring, and giving persons I knew, and she was also one of my closest friends. I will miss her. Patti, you will be deeply missed, and we will always treasure you in our hearts. Donna Alice O’Connor, who resided in Waquoit, Illinois, passed away on November 12 while she was surrounded by her daughters and grandkids. Until we meet again in heaven, we will miss her very much. She is 87 years old at this point in her life.
She was a devoted mother to her six children, a successful businesswoman who operated a restaurant, an engaged member of her church, where she sang in the choir for a number of years, and a well-educated Registered Nurse. Her children grew up with a mother who was all of these things. Donna lived a rich life, one that was packed with a variety of events and endeavors. She was someone who took great pleasure in reading and gardening. In her spare time, she enjoyed seeing the various parts of the world. Spending time with her children, grandchildren, and the guy she valued the most, Steve, was the thing that she cherished the most in life. They were perhaps her biggest source of pride and fulfillment.
Stephen J. O’Connor, the devoted spouse of Donna, passed away before to her passing. They have six children: Stephen (Chip) J. O’Connor III, Daren O’Connor Marvin, Jeff O’Connor, Chris O’Connor, and Darcy O’Connor Mallows. Greg O’Connor is the youngest of the O’Connor children. They all have first names that start with the letter “D.” Additionally, she will be leaving behind 18 grandkids. Later on in the spring, there will be a memorial service performed in memory of those who have passed away. In lieu of sending flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made to the Boston Higashi School for Autism in Randolph, Massachusetts. This was an organization that held a very special place in Donna’s heart, and she would be grateful for your support in preserving its legacy.
