Donna M. Morrow, 75, was welcomed into the arms of our Lord on September 30, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. She was born October 15, 1946, in Green Bay to Robert J. and Irene (Bricco) Van Adestine. On February 8, 1975, she married Lawrence “Larry” Morrow at St. John Cantius Catholic Church in Sobieski.
Donna attended St. Joseph Catholic Grace School, Franklin Jr. High School and graduated in 1965 from West High School. She continued her education at Door-Kewaunee Teachers’ College in Algoma and received her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
Donna always said, “When Neil Armstrong took one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind in 1969, I took one small step starting my teaching career at Luxemburg-Casco School, Now, 33 years later, I can see MY giant leap filled with the smiling faces of all my students, feeling their excitement and eagerness to learn.”
Donna continued this love of fun and adventure with her children, Jennifer, Jaci, and Joe. Her infant son Stephen’s short life was always in her heart. She loved being a grandmother to her beautiful granddaughters. She spoiled those girls as well as her adorable “grand-puppies”.
Donna will be missed by her loving husband Larry, her children, Jennifer (special friend Dan Nelis) Schwartz, Jaci (Tony) Rocheleau, and Joe (Kathy) Morrow and her granddaughters, Melanie and Megan Rocheleau.
