Donna helped shape the lives of many young dancers during the 25 years she owned and operated Donna's Dance Studio in Chili, NY. She continued touching lives and cast a wide net of friends and family during her years in the service industry at places like Louie's Sweet Shoppe, Summerville Grill, and Valicia's Ristorante, up until her passing.
Donna battled cancer for over 2 years but didn't want others to share that burden, so she often kept it to herself. Her bravery, strength and compassion for others during this time is admired by her friends and family. Her fire, uncompromisingly forthright approach to life, and kind heart will be missed.
There will be calling hours on December 21 at Valicia's Ristorante, 2155 Long Pond Rd, from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to WCI Interlakes Oncology Patient Needs Fund, 300 East River Rd Box 278996 Rochester, NY 14627 in honor of Donna Lewandowski.
Kindly also consider donating to James P. Wilmot Cancer Center, c/o Alumni & Advancement Center, 300 East River Road, PO Box 278996, Rochester, NY 14627 in Donna’s memory.
