The family would like to thank the many friends and the Church of Christ family for their prayers, support and love they have shown to our mom during the last few years.
Tributes:It was a Friday tradition for my dad, Bill Foote, and I to have lunch at the Westerner. Potato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Dona waited on us nearly every time. Seeing her was always a highlight of my day. She even offered to take me to Disneyland with her and her grandkids one time. But my favorite memory is the time she served me a grilled cheese sandwich without the cheese! She was a great lady and will be greatly missed by many. Thoughts and prayers to all her family and friends.
