Donna Hersh of Carolina Beach, North Carolina left this earth peacefully on September 27th, 2017 at the age of 59. Donna was born Donna Jane Hill. She is predeceased by her beloved Step Mother Eleanor Weekly Hill, parents DK Hill and Beverly Ross.
Donna leaves behind her son Zachary Williamson of the Philippines, grandson Shayne Williamson, her daughter Renee Williamson Bloodworth (Benny) of Pender County, grandchildren Jordan, Natalie, Luke, Gordon and great grandson Grayson.
She also leaves behind her partner in life and love Rick Sloan of Carolina Beach and daughter Sarah Zachary, granddaughter Evie, son Ricky Sloan (Kristen) and granddaughter Airlie, and her constant sidekick Dylan Dog.
She is survived by her sisters Toni Skvaril, Sandra Jordan (Todd), brother Jeff Skvaril, sisters Brenda Snodgrass (C.W. ) Pam Riggs (Billy) and many nephews and a niece.
Donna was very active in her community. She will always be remembered for her witty humor and love for her family. She never met a stranger and to know her was to be her friend.
She enjoyed fishing with her "Captain" Rick, listening to good music, being around the people she loved, dancing even without music and living life each day to the fullest. No one ever went hungry when she was around, she had a "cure" for every ailment and she selflessly took care of people without being asked. She has left a legacy of joy, love, happiness, selflessness and much more.
She was an active member of Got Em On fishing club in Pleasure Island and gave many hours to a cause that was very dear to heart to the, The Disabled Sportsmen Fishing Tournament. She also dreamt up "Habitat for Harry" and thanks to her, our wonderful community came together and helped her build Harry a new house.
In lieu of flowers to the family please make donations to the The Disabled Sportsmen Fishing Tournament via the Got Em' On Fishing Club
