Donna was born and raised in West Orange, NJ, and was one of six children of the late Harry and Elizabeth Scheper.

Donna cherished spending time with loved ones and was an animal lover and devoted “cat mom” to several cats that she rescued and cared for over the years. She was a kindhearted, fun-loving, and spirited woman with a wonderful sense of humor, who will be remembered for her generosity, strength, and compassion.


Donna is survived by her siblings; Bonnie Scheper, Dennis Scheper, Betsey Bradley, Thomas Scheper, and her dear friend Dennis Balbach. A loving Aunt, Donna is also survived by many nieces and nephews, whom she brought so much happiness to, and will be missed by many beloved friends who she considered family.


Her family extends their thanks for the kind words and memories friends have shared.
