|Donna Mae Hendrix|
|January 24, 1954 - November 28, 2010|
|Rock Island, Illinois|
|Donna Mae Hendrix, 56, passed away Sunday, November 28, 2010 at Trinity Rock Island following a short and heart-breaking battle with leukemia. Per Donna’s instructions, there will be no visitation or funeral services. Always the joker, Donna did request that those who loved her reminisce about her next time they visit her favorite Mexican restaurant. |
Donna was born January 24, 1954 in Rock Island, Illinois, the daughter of Leona and Eugene Isaacson. A graduate of Rock Island High School, Donna worked as a unit secretary at Trinity Medical Center (formerly Franciscan Hospital) for 38 years.
Donna was formerly married to Gene Hendrix and together they have two daughters. Donna loved spoiling her baby grandson and her dogs and cats, cross-stitching, reading mysteries and westerns, and shopping for bargains (“Clearance, clearance, double-clearance!”).
Donna touched the lives of many people with her warmth and generosity, and maintained her trademark sense of humor all the way to the end.
Donna was preceded in death by her mother and father, Leona and Albert Isaacson, and her mother and father-in-law, Allie and Kenneth Hendrix. Donna will forever be remembered by her two daughters, Jennifer (Stephen) Hill, Davenport, and Kellie Hendrix, Rock Island; beloved grandson Thomas Hill; and sisters, Barbara Wise and Mary Custer, Rock Island; Pamela Lopez and Nancy Marckese, Moline; and Sharon (Robert) Kolls, Milan; along with countless other friends and family who were blessed to know her.
Please accept all our sympathy from all the volunteers at Animal Aid.

I am sorry to hear of Donna's passing. When I was a new nurse, Donna was the "go-to" person I looked for when I had a question. She had so much patience for all those questions. You always knew you could count on Donna! I hope your memories bring you comfort in the days ahead. She was a special person!
