A Tribute to Donna J. Roe

Well-respected, admired, and filled with stories, the Historical League lost a valued member and a wonderful historian on March 14 when Donna Jensen Roe passed away at age 83 from respiratory complications. She joined the Historical League when she retired from Camelback Inn after encouragement from Renee Donnelly.  A very active member,  she helped with the Children's Holiday Party, Wallace and Ladmo event, Two Girls from Globe dinner, and the Historymakers Gala and Recognition Program. She co-authored Tastes & Treasures cookbook with Gaye Ingram.  Her spirit and sense of fun, along with her anecdotes about travel and entertainment live on in the memories of Historical League members. We miss Donna! She is survived by her daughter, Pam Roe Ehlers, son-in-law Howard Ehlers, and son Christopher Hixson.
