Orduna, who was always known as “Donna” by all, was very devoted to her family and exceptional in serving them and others. Donna served her community and diocese with tireless commitment. For 30 years Donna served St. Raphael School, assisting wherever needed, starting by helping in the school cafeteria, working in the school office and substitute teaching. In later years she taught Physical Education and related classes, coached volleyball and softball teams, winning two District championships, and organized and managed summer sports and arts camps.
Donna dedicated her life to serving her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for many years hosting weekly Rosary meetings that her husband, Clay, moderated, and ceaselessly helping and supporting Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
For the love and care given during this time, the family would like to especially extend expressions of heartfelt gratitude to Kathy and Olga, caregivers, Nickie and Debora with Interim Hospice, Chaplain Jim Louviere and Reverend Angel Diaz.
