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.

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.

    My baby doll,
    I love you with all my heart, not sure why God took you so soon.
    We had many dreams and plans, Our love for one another was so beautiful together.
    From our first date, we knew something was different we connected on so many levels and our story began.
    We lived a full life together in a short period of time, however we had a lot of unfinished dreams, unfinished journeys, unfinished vacations to live.
    I miss you with all my heart.
    I love you with all my heart.
    You will forever be with me in my heart.
    All your cares and worries are gone now, no more pain.

    Rest now.

    Donna had a way to brighten a room with her sweet giggles and gorgeous eyes. Full of life. I am so sorry. But always remember. Ultimately we know God Is love, will hold your hand as you go through this, and is a good good Father. Maybe God let her come in those pearly gates early to get your cabin/cottage/farm house ready for y’all to retire together in.
