Donna Lynn Bridges, resident of Leland, North Carolina, formerly of Pennsylvania, went to be with the Lord on November 24th, 2017 at the age of 58 years old.
Donna was born in Worcester County, Massachusetts on February 6th, 1959 to her parents, Henry and Martha Brandt. She graduated from Hempfield Area High School, and she married Douglas Bridges on October 7, 1978. The Bridges resided in Pennsylvania until 2009 when they moved to Leland, North Carolina to enjoy the beaches and warmer weather.
Donna was known for her spirit and sense of humor. Donna was a woman of God. She never passed by anyone who had fallen on hard times without lending her aid. Prior to moving to Leland, she was a member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in New Stanton, PA. She loved music and gardening, and being in nature surrounded by God’s creations. Her yard and garden were places of comfort, and she took pride in planting and caring for her bushes and plants, especially when accompanied by her dog Buckley.
Mrs. Bridges is survived by the love of her life, Douglas Bridges; her parents, Henry and Martha Brandt of Prescott, Arizona; her sisters, Lisa and Dianna Brandt of Prescott, Arizona; her brother, William Brandt of Ash Fork, Arizona; and her daughter, Kelly Bridges of Great Mills, Maryland, as well as many nieces, nephews, and brothers and sisters-in-law.
A service to remember her life will be held at a Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home Wilmington Chapel on Wednesday, November 29th from 3 - 5:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation, 1414 Physicians Dr., Wilmington, NC 28401.
