Donna Day SL

Donna entered Loretto in 1961 with the best class ever. The members gather often to renew friendships. Donna’s work in Loretto has included many years serving the Hispanic community in Colorado, the African-American community at Pillar Place in St. Louis and countless years on the Loretto staff in health care and as an Interchange editor. Participating on the Topical Committee and traveling to be present with the community all across the country is a real joy. Reading, Cardinal baseball and celebrating all things Irish are among her favorite pastimes.
