Donna Jean (Korthals) Lum, born February 10, 1937 in North Tonawanda, New York to Edward Korthals and Anna  Frank; passed on to be with our Lord and Savior surrounded by her loving family and friends at Newfane Health Facility on January 29, 2013.
Donna was a devoted wife, mother, sister and a friend to all. Donna met and married the love of her life, the late Harold E. Lum. They were married on July 8, 1961. They had two children, Stephen H. Lum (Tina) and Deanna J. Fringer (Lum); and four loving grandchildren, Glenn Lum and Shayne, Jared, and Haley Fringer of whom she doted over. Donna had seven loving sisters, Delores Palmeri, Rita Kuligowski, the late Elizabeth "Betty" French, Judy Schmidt, Kathy Lane, Lila Champion, Susie Rizzo; and one brother, the late Alvin Korthals.
Donna had previously worked at Remington Rand as a keypunch operator. She loved reading books, playing bingo and enjoying good conversation. Donna had a twinkle in her eye that lit up the room and an endearing laugh that made your day.
Interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery where she will come to rest in eternity with her ever loving and faithful husband, Harold.
