Donna R. Ostendorf passed away on Monday, October 26, 2020 at the age of 78. Born on October 7, 1942 in Cincinnati, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Ruth Ann (née Zackerman) Morgenthal.
First and foremost Donna was a dedicated wife and mother. She treasured her husband and children embracing every moment with them. She is especially loved for her role as Nana. She had a loving and caring personality and always made people around her feel comfortable and included. For many years Donna worked as an administrative assistant at General Electric. When not working and with her children or grandchildren, she was enjoying her friends, shopping, going to the casino, traveling and playing golf.
Donna fought a long tough fight with Parkinson’s disease (35 years) but never gave up her smile or sense of humor. She continued to always give her best even as the disease consumed more and more of her body. She was most of all a fighter and definitely not a quitter. These traits are what made her the dedicated Wife, Mother, Nana and friend she was to so many.
Donna is survived by her husband of 57 years, Donald Ostendorf; her children, Holly (Scott) Goldberg and Michael Ostendorf; grandchildren, Logan, Tyler, Paige and Dylan. She was also the sister of Tom, Beverly and Bob.
