Donna Famiano Obituary

Donna M. Famiano (nee Steep) was called home on January 18, 2023. Beloved wife of the late Anthony Francis; devoted mother of Christina Hunter (Joshua), Ashley Ann and Anthony Francis, Jr.; loving grandmother of Seth, Isabella, Malachi, Lucas, Xavier, Naomi, Zachariah and Jacob. Donna is survived by her fiance, Richie Thompson, siblings Darleen, Carole Jacuk (Gene) and Joseph (Debbie), many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was the daughter of the late Joseph and Elizabeth (nee Watts) Steep, and was predeceased by sisters Kathy (Bunny) Berry, Elizabeth (Betty Boop, Sissy), Gloria Jean and Sharon Marie. 

Donna was a dedicated nurse since 1991 and worked until her chronic lung disease became too severe. There are no words to describe how incredibly amazing she was. To know her was to love her. We thank the Lord for lending her to us, even if only for a short time. We were blessed to be touched by one of God's Angels.
