Norma June (Heier) Donahue, 78, of Cumberland, died Friday, March 2, 2018, at her home surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born Jan. 15, 1940, in Cumberland, Mrs. Donahue was the daughter of the late Lewis Conrad Heier and Norine June (Wassen) Heier). She was also preceded in death by her older brother, Charles Heier; a great-grandson, Levi Joshua, and was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
A graduate of Fort Hill High School, Class of 1960, Norma retired from Allegany County Board of Education in Food Service Department at Northeast Elementary School. She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church. Anyone who met Norma loved her. Kind does not do her personality justice. Norma was sweet, kind, and loving.
Norma is survived by her husband of 54 years, Ralph E. "Jake" Donahue; her only son, Raymond E. Donahue and very special daughter-in-law, Mechele "Micki" Donahue; grandsons, Steven S. Donahue and Jesse A. Donahue and wife, Brittany; great-grandchildren, Aroura, Jeremiah, and Ryan Donahue; and a special niece, Diane Iskra and husband, Chuck.
