Softly in the morning, you heard a gentle call. You took the hand God offered you and quietly left us all. Our hearts were broken Saturday, November 3, 2018 when our loving wife, mom, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend Donna J. (Allis) Doane passed away.

Abiding with her wishes there will be no services. Donna was born June 7, 1940 in Orwell Township, Pa ., a daughter of the late Leon and Maisie (Lent) Allis. Donna was employed by the Dundee Central Schools and the Morton Salt Company as a custodian. She retired from the Dandy Mini Market in Lockwood. Donna enjoyed playing BINGO, cards, and visiting Tioga Downs. Her greatest love was being surrounded by her family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A thoughtful and giving person, Donna would see to the needs of others — she especially enjoyed her visits with her siblings.

Donna will be greatly missed by her husband, Ethan C. “Sonny” Doane; her children, Peggy (Michael) Laursen, Nancy (Paul) Taylor, Harold (Sue) Hall, James (Kerrilee) Hall, Gail (Mike) Doane, Ella Doane; her brothers and sister-in-law, Harold Allis, Robert and Alice Allis, Leon Allis; her sisters, Gladys Cobb and Carol Harford; her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Regina and Robert Thompson; fourteen grandchildren, several great- grandchildren; many nieces, nephews and their families.

Donna was predeceased by her parents, Leon and Maisie (Lent) Allis; her sister, Alberta Baldwin; sisters-in-law, Darlene Allis and Juanita Allis.
