Donna Chavez was a wonderful wife, mother, mother in law, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, nana and friend. She was loved by many and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Donna loved all 8 of her grandkids with all of her heart. If she wasn't with them, by day she enjoyed the casino and by night she loved parties. Her heart and generosity knew no bounds. Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I miss you. Until we meet again. Rest in Peace Nana Donna! We love you!
