It Takes a Family to Comfort a Family
Donna Marie Foley
Donna Marie Foley, 50, passed away on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, surrounded by her family. Donna was a native of Newport News her entire life. She was a phlebotomist for Labcorp for 10 years.
Donna loved to laugh and always had a smile on her face. She loved her family and loved being called Nah-Nah by her grandchildren. Being a country girl, she loved being outside and loved hunting with her husband. Donna was an avid antique and yard sales shopper and was addicted to shopping on Amazon. She watched the Pittsburgh Steelers games and loved going out to eat. As a child, her mother called her “chatter-box” and it stayed with her for her entire life.
Donna is survived by her husband of seven years, Timothy Foley; parents, Linda Hill Chapman and Douglas Blake Chapman; daughters, Heather McSwine (Lewis) and Jamie Foley Inscoe (Michael); sons, Chris Ivey (Linsey), Blake Ivey (Jamacia fiancé), Todd Foley; eight grandchildren, Leia McSwine, Trinity Green, Cooper, and Preston Ivey, Ava and Eli Perriello, Landon and Cody Inscoe; and one brother, Michael Chapman (Gilda).
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Peninsula Funeral Home, with a memorial service following at 6:00 p.m. The family asks that people wear masks because they can save lives.
Arrangements are under the care of Peninsula Funeral Home, 11144 Warwick Blvd., Newport News, Virginia 23601.
