Donna Lentini's Funeral Costs

$4,200 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 21 months
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.

Here is a poem that I recited at the memorial. I couldn’t read it and not think of Mom! What do you think!?

Gone From Us …

Gone from us that smiling face,
The cheerful pleasant ways,
The heart that won so many friends,
In bygone, happy days.

A life made beautiful by kindly deeds,
A helping hand for others’ needs.
To a beautiful life,
Comes a happy end,
She died as she lived,
Everyone’s friend.

Hi everyone. The dust is settling and things are falling into place. We still have periods of overwhelming grief, but they’re followed by pleasant memories and faith that she is in a place without suffering. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers, words of encouragement, presence during this difficult time and your generosity. We sincerely couldn’t have done it without you! The memorial was amazing and many spoke kind words of Donna.
I’m going home to California tomorrow, which means that daddy will be alone. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Give him a ring now and then and check in with him. He seems to be doing ok now, but I’m here to tell him jokes and keep him smiling. He’s got a tough road ahead of him!
Blessings to you all!!
