Donna, a devoted catholic and mother, passed away peacefully to join the lord in heaven on September 9, 2018.
Donna was the firstborn of Charles and LeNae Havlicek. She grew up in Newport with her brothers, Gary and David, and enjoyed spending her childhood on the coast with her cousins Jane, Janet and JoAnne. She later attended University of Portland and always continued to learn through her love of reading.
Donna worked many jobs, but none more challenging or fulfilling than raising her children. The Andre kids have endless stories to tell of their times growing up together. But teaching them to have faith and love in God was of the utmost importance to her. She believed strongly in the right to life, and it fulfilled her heart to be able to reconnect with her first son, Patrick, in his adulthood. Donna loved music, arts and dancing of all kinds- from traditional Irish jigs to even Zumba! She enjoyed discussing different theories and valued other cultures. In addition, Donna was generous and giving to others.
Donna is survived by her children Patrick Crane, Kevin Andre, Michelle (Andre) Shultz, Rodney Scott Andre, Michael Andre, John (Andre) Eagles and Charles Andre; her brothers Gary Havlicek and David Havlicek; and her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is also dearly missed by other family members, friends and parishioners.
A memorial service will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Newport, OR on September 18th at 10:00 am.
