Donna was born May 11, 1934 in Krakow, WI, daughter of the late John "Jack" and Myrtle (Bonnin) Trybeck. She was a graduate of Washington High School, Two Rivers with the Class of 1952. On September 22, 1956 she was united in marriage to Leland Hansen in Manitowoc. He preceded her in death on October 9, 2011.
Donna had worked for Mirro and later with Two Rivers Tool and Specialty prior to her retirement. She enjoyed evenings on the patio with Lee, having a martini and grilling out. In their early years together, they spent time in Door County at the trailer. Several trips out West and Florida were enjoyed with family, as well as a trip to New York, and Boston for her and Lee's 50th wedding anniversary. Going out to dinner and bus trips to the casino rounded out the fun. Donna enjoyed conversations with family and friends while sitting in her spot on the couch! She will be dearly missed.
