Saco, Donna Bryant, 77, of Flag Pond Rd Saco, passed away peacefully Sunday April 29, 2018 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough.  She was born in Portland Maine February 4, 1941 the daughter of Mike and Kathleen Tubbs Reynolds. She attended local schools and later graduated from Samuel D. Hanson High School. Donna worked for over 30 years for New England Telephone Company. Upon her retirement, her passion for caring gleamed through. She spent her later days in life working part time in healthcare. Most recently, Donna went daily to spend time with a lovely woman, Mrs. Montz.  Her picture-perfect work ethic and dedication allowed her to work just days prior to her passing. She enjoyed the beach, taking care of family and spoiling her dogs including Gillies who was by her side at the time of her passing. Donna’s ability to put her own ailment aside and wake up every day with a grateful heart replicates her true self. She was a woman of compassion, empathy, determination, strength and by far a woman who loved beyond illustration. Her grandchildren, great grandchildren, countless nieces, nephews and all of the adopted grandchildren were the center of her universe.
