She was a graduate of Northwestern Regional 7. Following graduation and for many years of her life, Donna worked in the food industry and later operated her own food truck for a number of years. Donna will be remembered for her ability to create several wonderful culinary delights. Her recipes have been passed down for years for family and friends to enjoy. Donna was a family person who enjoyed spending time with her siblings and their spouses. During the summers, nearly every weekend there was a picnic among family and friends at the Travaglin family home organized by Donna. This same passion for family time still exists to this day with her boys and the family.
A private service for family and a celebration of life will be held on a date in the near future. Donations may be made in Donna’s name to the Winsted Area Ambulance service.
