Donna R. Greening was called peacefully to be with the Lord, Sunday, September 24, 2017 at the Heartis Assisted Living Facility in Conroe, Texas, at the age of 88.  She was born on September 26, 1928 in St. Louis Michigan, to the late Clifford Graham and Florence (Carmon) Graham.  She married Donald Greening, October 19, 1946 in St. Louis, Michigan.  He predeceased her October 10, 1996.
