At age 14, Donna met her soul mate, Walter Hutchings, whom she later married and became his loving partner for 43 years, until his passing in January 2000. Before her marriage to Walter, Donna worked as an executive assistant for American Home Builders Association in downtown Cleveland. After raising her four children, she worked for Omni-International for 15 years. In addition to her professional interests, she was an avid gardener and chef, who loved entertaining. Most of all, Donna loved her family and spending time with them was the most important thing to her.
Donna is survived by her children, David (Geri) Hutchings, Donald (Sue) Hutchings, Christine (Paul) Kelly and Julie (Ryan) Sibley; grandchildren, Mackenzie, Nicholas and Andrew Kelly and Walter Grant, Nathan and Evan Sibley; and brother, Jack Rothermel.
