Obituary for Donna J. Cole

Donna J. (DeVivo) Cole, 83, of Gettysburg, bravely succumbed to cancer and entered into God’s eternal care on Saturday, June 25, 2022, surrounded by her loving husband and daughters.

Born on Nov. 4, 1938 in Yatesboro, PA, she was the daughter of the late Mario DeVivo and the late Caroline (Dalessio) Trostle. Donna is survived by her husband William A. Cole to whom she was married for 63 years and her four daughters Diana Hilton (Richard) of Gettysburg, Judy Redding (Daniel) of Gettysburg, Lori Martin (Glenn) of The Villages FL, and Jennifer Statuto (Richard) of Naples FL; grandchildren Alexandra Hilton (Vincent Battistone) and Ryan Hilton, Megan Alder, Nathan (Lesley) and Curtis Spence, and Anthony (Jen), Dominic (Julia), Vincent (Bre) and Mario Statuto; and great grandchildren Shaine and Grady Spence and Matteo, Avery, Gia and Landon Statuto.

She was predeceased by brother Mario DeVivo and is survived by sister Mary Lou Stoner and half siblings Alma Sujeski, Donald Trostle and Diane Weikel, as well as numerous in laws, nieces and nephews.

Donna was a 1957 graduate of Delone Catholic High School. A truly fashionable entrepreneur, she was the owner/operator of two women’s boutiques in Gettysburg for many years until her retirement, The Clothes Tree and the Carol Ann Shoppe.

Involved in community and civic organizations such as the Republican Women’s Committee and Gettysburg Hospital Auxiliary, she was also an active member of St. Francis Xavier Church in Gettysburg. She enjoyed the theater, golf, bridge and time with her close friends.

Above all else, she had a profound love for her family, her country and her faith.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, July 1, 2022 at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church at 10:00 AM. There will be a viewing at the church on Friday from 9:00 AM until the time of the Mass. Burial will follow at Evergreen Cemetery.

The family respectfully requests, in lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Donna J. (DeVivo) Cole be made to SpiriTrust Lutheran Home Care & Hospice at 2700 Luther Drive, Chambersburg PA 17202 or oline at spiritrustlutheran.org.
