Donna Marie Bryant was born in Bronx, NY on June 22, 1960 to Willie and Nettie Bryant. She was the youngest of seven children so she definitely received the perks of being the baby girl. Donna was educated in New York City Public Schools and went on to receive her Associate’s Degree from Plaza Institute. Donna had the ability to be both dedicated to her career and her family. She worked for the City of New York’s Department of Human Services and then Time Warner Cable where she was affectionately known as Mrs. Time Warner.

Donna was a beautiful person, both inside and out. Her spirit was joyful and she would always make you laugh. Being around her was such a joy. She did some of the funniest things too. If she came to your house, you better bet, she was peeking in your closets. She wanted to make sure you were stylish and on trend.
Donna also had many talents. She managed her household regardless of how many people lived there and she planned some great parties. She also had the ability to read your disposition well. When someone was troubled she would encourage them, and would do so in a humorous way. She never let anyone feel like a stranger and she had the ability to make you feel both loved and appreciated. Donna was so sweet that she earned the nick name, Apple Plum. Some also called her Donnie, Donna Bonna, Donna Girl and Aunt Donna. She was Aunt Donna to everyone.
Donna loved to travel both in and out of the United States and she had a love for the tropical islands. Donna would travel with one other person or 20 other people. She passed on the love of travel to her family.
Donna was cherished by many and her presence will be missed. She is preceded her in death by, her Father Willie Bryant Jr., Brother Carnell Blount, and Sister Cherlane House. She leaves behind those who will cherish her memories, her mother Nettie Bryant, Brother Willie Bryant III (Caran), Sisters Carolyn Mayfield, Paula Bryant (David Walker) and Kim Williams (Everett Williams Sr.), as well as a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
During her last days she was at home under the loving care of her niece Nicole Bryant and Nicole’s daughters.
We will see Donna again in the resurrection John 5:28, 29.
