It is with overwhelming sadness that we say goodbye to the greatest mother, wife and friend, Donna Fay Brown Lentini. She passed on Thursday November 9 in La Plata Maryland of multi-organ failure.
I can't imagine that she has ever met a single person and didn't leave their day a little bit brighter. She was the best at pointing out the sunshine on the gloomiest day. She loved people, and only saw the good in them. She was simple and genuine. This was Donna Fay.
She was born in La Plata Maryland, in the same hospital that she passed away in. She grew up in Brandywine Maryland and graduated from Gwynn Park High School. She attended St Mary’s College and married a guitar playing Navy Veteran named Paul Lentini. They had a son and an daughter of their heart
. She had a very successful Tupperware business for many years. She also worked as a Linen World Consultant and for the Census Bureau when she was no longer able to work away from her home.
She battled Parkinson’s disease for many years, a neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement; it can make even the simplest activity, like tying your shoes, feel like an eternity. She faced these daily challenges with a smile on her face. Her husband Paul, the best husband and father in the world, took early retirement to be her 24-hour caretaker.
Unfortunately, there isn't a pile of money laying around to cover funeral expenses and a memorial service. Donna's passing has come at a very unfortunate financial time in their lives, as they were in a difficult financial situation to begin with. Paul is faced with the overwhelming task of planning and preparing to bury the love of his life. Those that knew Donna and know Paul know they would have given their last dollar to someone in need and in truth have, to their children. They are that type of people.
Please consider donating to help ease the burden of these expenses. No amount is too small; every penny is appreciated. Thank you so much in advance. May God bless you all and comfort you as you grieve the loss Donna Fay.
"A beautiful soul is never forgotten."
