Born in Newburyport, August 8, 1943, Donna was one of three daughters of the late Donald and Ruth (Eaton) Smith and was a graduate of Newburyport High School, Class of 1961.
At the age of 55, Donna retired from Lucent Technologies, where she had worked as a quality assurance inspector.
After their retirement, Donna and her beloved husband "Bob" enjoyed wintering in the Florida Keys for 19 years, leaving behind the blustery winter conditions of New England
Donna was a ray of sunshine to everyone she met, with her bright smile and her sincere demeanor. To her husband, her children and her grandchildren, she was absolutely the most amazing, dedicated and loving person in the world. Her love was genuine and unconditional, and her family was always the focal point of her life. Donna was an avid gardener and had been a past member of the Merrimac Garden Club for many years.
She leaves behind a lifetime of beautiful memories to her husband of 55 years, Robert E. Wells; her two sons, Timothy of Atlanta, Georgia and Scott of Merrimac; her two granddaughters, Lisa and Nicole; her sister, Bonita Bothell, of Arizona, a nephew, Zach and a niece Keeley, both of Arizona, along with extended family and dear friends. In addition to her parents, she was also predeceased by her sister, Judy. Donna's spirit will continue to be with them throughout their lives and will shine as bright as the morning star.
