Our red-haired angel, Donna flew home to be with her Lord on April 6, while surrounded by family, after a lengthy illness.
She was born in Middletown, CT and spent most of her childhood in nearby Portland, CT; before moving to Lynn, MA and later Medina, OH. Donna leaves her husband of 43 years, James E. Vickers, her son Robert J. Vickers and two sisters; Ruthann (Smedick) DePrizito, spouse Jim of Palm Bay, FL and Sue Ann (Smedick) Kyer, spouse Rick of Lodi, OH; along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.
She is predeceased by her father (Robert E. Smedick) and mother Ruth B. (Douglas) Smedick.
Donna served as dedicated Dental Assistant for over 40 years, including 10 years with the Medina County Health Department. She also was a licensed Notary Public providing those services for many of her friends and neighbors.
Donna also enjoyed reading, crocheting, crafts, holiday baking, and spending time with friends and family.
A Memorial service will be held at Cornerstone Chapel at 2 PM on Sat. May 26th. located at 3939 Granger Road, Medina, OH. This will be followed by a Celebration of Life gathering at Forest Meadows Villas located at 574 Leisure Lane in Medina, OH.
