In addition to her parents, Donna was preceded in death by her sister, Nora Nichols, first husband, Bruce Stradley, who passed 45 years ago, and her most recent marriage of over 40 years to Fred McCain from Oak Hill, Ohio, who also precedes her in death.

She is survived by her brother, Bob Coe, her three sons and daughters-in-law, Michael and Chelsea McCain, Drew and Noelle McCain, and Damian and Vale Stradley.

She was a loving wife, mother and Nana to Declan (2), Taylor (19), Avery (9), Jordan (16), Joel (20), and Nathan (22.) She will be dearly missed.
