Dona Marie Thorman Passed away on 12-22-13 after a long battle with liver disease.
She was born in Saginaw Michigan on 05-23-1954.
Dona married her husband Tom on April 22 1989 and they were still together until the end.
Dona is survived by; her husband Tom, 3 step children Tawny, Jason and Brittany, 5 grandchildren, Hayden, Holly, Logan, Emily and Nixon, her sister Dannette Truckner (Florida)and 3 brothers, Dann Kaledo (Florida), David Kaledo (Florida), Doug Kaledo (Washington), and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends who will all miss her.
Dona was a fun loving person who cared deeply for her family. Her beautiful blue eyes and infectious laugh brightened everyone’s life.
Dona loved tropical beaches and drinks, her favorite was the Caribbean. She took many cruises to the Caribbean with her sister Dannette and husband Tom. Though not in the Caribbean, one of her favorite places was a little town in southern Mexico, “Hautuco”, a quaint little fishing village with the bluest water and great snorkeling. Probably her best vacation was her last one in St Lucia with Tom.
She also loved snorkeling in Maui especially Kapalua, basically she loved warm beaches, warm clear water and cool drinks.
Dona had a deep passion for her 4 legged furry friends. She owned a pet boutique store called “Cosmopawlitan Café” located on El Paseo, where she hosted many pet adoptions. Her heart was always giving to needing and homeless doggies.
Shadow, Bailey and Mia, her 3 doggies, will miss her very much.
Dona also loved tennis and her annual “Christmas Cookie Party” which was a big hit for those who were lucky enough to attend.
Of course she loved her grandchildren especially her oldest Hayden.
There will be a Celebration of her life held at OASIS COUNTRY CLUB located at 42330 CASBAH, PALM DESERT On January 25th at 1:00pm.
This is not a wake or memorial service but a celebration party for the ones she loved.
