In memory of
Donna Mae Meyer
Donna Mae Meyer CANANDAIGUA - Donna Mae Meyer, age 72, passed peacefully, and surrounded by her family, on March 2, 2019, after a long battle with cancer that took her body but never, ever took her spirit. Born on July 25, 1946, in Geneva to the late Charles R. Meyer and Doris I. Davie Meyer, Donna was a beloved daughter, caring sister, devoted mother and cherished friend to her parents, siblings, children and many acquaintances. She spent her life in education, graduated from Gorham Central School in 1964 and Oneonta State in 1968 before spending more than 30 years teaching at Victor Central School. Donna blossomed in retirement, challenging herself to run a marathon, actively volunteering her time, notably with Ontario Pathways, and fully recommitting herself to her faith at Seneca #9 Presbyterian Church. She traveled extensively, often with her beloved friend Preston Pierce. Donna was an avid quilter and a voracious reader. Her greatest joy later in life came from the time spent with her grandchildren, her only sorrow being the loss of time with them. Now she will be with them and with all of us always in spirit and in mind. Friends may call on Friday, March 8, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at Kenneth J. Perkins Funeral Home in Gorham. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 9, at 11 a.m. at Seneca #9 Presbyterian Church with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Seneca #9 Presbyterian Church, 4414 Number Nine Road, Stanley, NY 14561; or Ontario Pathways, PO Box 996, Canandaigua, NY 14424. Donna is survived by her beloved friend, Preston Pierce; sons, Todd (Meredith) Meyer and Marc (Luann) Meyer; six grandchildren, Alayna, Charlie, Jordyn Mae, Ellie Mae, James and Georgia; brothers, Robert (Anne Marie) Meyer, Larry (Jennifer) Meyer and Alan (Christy) Meyer; sisters, Carol (Doug) Creech and Linda (John) Zappia; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
