Donna Mae Smith Thorne was born in Vincennes Indiana and worked for Good Samaritan Hospital for 32 years in the laundry department. She loved her family very much and grandchildren too! She loved her dog Diamond more than her own family. Watching Indiana University play basketball on a Saturday afternoon was one of her favorite things to watch on tv, she also loved to watch the Indianapolis Colts play, she would get excited every time they would make a touchdown! Donna was the life of the party she said what she meant, and meant what she said! She was straight up with her family and friends and the way she lived her life. During the week between 12:30 pm until 1:30 pm she would shut her phone off and watch Young and the Restless, she wouldn’t even answer the door at that time either. She will be deeply missed by all!
Visitation for family and friends will be held on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm at Goodwin Sievers Funeral Home 524 Broadway Street Vincennes Indiana. Under the direction of Goodwin Sievers Funeral Home Vincennes, Indiana.
