Donna Lee Hellman, 57 entered into rest on October 23, 2015 in Manteca. She was born on January 29, 1958 to the late Louis and Margaret C. Hellman. Donna joins her parents in heaven as well as her sister Sheila Valim and late sister-in-law, Lynn Hellman.
She leaves behind her siblings Gary M. Hellman of Santa Rosa, Natalie Rogerson of Cupertino, and David P. Hellman of Manteca. Donna’s presence in our extended family of cousins and the rest is a deep loss for all of us.
Donna was a Manteca resident though she spent time in Los Banos and Texas. She worked as a security guard, nursing assistant and bus driver for disabled children. Donna loved to travel; any day was a good day for a road trip. She was an avid photographer and a published poet. Donna enjoyed being with her family and large extended family of friends. Donna aka “Big D” had a generous heart and love for her friends and family. She will be remembered for her larger than life personality, her free spirt and her instant recall of dirty jokes. As “Our Calendar Girl”, she will be greatly missed.
P.L. Fry is honored to serve the Hellman family.
A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at
