Canandaigua- Donna Mae Meyer, age 72, passed peacefully and surrounded by her family on March 2, 2019 after a long battle with cancer that took her body but never, ever took her spirit.

Born on July 25, 1946 in Geneva NY, to the late Charles R. Meyer and Doris I. Davie Meyer, Donna was a beloved daughter, caring sister, devoted mother and cherished friend to her parents, siblings, children and many acquaintances. She spent her life in education, graduating from Gorham Central School in 1964 and Oneonta State in 1968 before spending more than 30 years teaching at Victor Central School.

Donna blossomed in retirement, challenging herself to run a marathon, actively volunteering her time, notably with Ontario Pathways and fully recommitting herself to her faith at Seneca #9 Presbyterian Church. She traveled extensively, often with her beloved friend, Preston Pierce. Donna was an avid quilter and a voracious reader. Her greatest joy later in life came from the time spent with her grandchildren, her only sorrow being the loss of time with them. Now she will be with them and with all of us always in spirit and in mind.

Friends may call Friday (Mar. 8th) from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at the Kenneth J. Perkins Funeral Home in Gorham NY. A Memorial Service will be held Saturday (Mar. 9th) at 11 a.m. at the Seneca #9 Presbyterian Church with a reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Contributions may be made to Seneca #9 Presbyterian Church, 4414 Number Nine Rd., Stanley, NY 14561 or to Ontario Pathways, P.O. Box 996, Canandaigua, NY 14424.

Donna is survived by her beloved friend, Preston Pierce; sons, Todd (Meredith) Meyer and Marc (Luann) Meyer; 6 grandchildren, Alayna, Charlie, Jordyn Mae, Ellie Mae, James, and Georgia; brothers, Robert (Anne Marie) Meyer, Larry (Jennifer) Meyer, and Alan (Christy) Meyer; sisters, Carol (Doug) Creech and Linda (John) Zappia; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
