Danica “Donna” Nonevski (nee Mladenovska) passed away Tuesday, December 17, 2013, at the age of 81. Donna was born in the village of Slivnica, Macedonia. She and her husband, Teodore, immigrated to America, in 1972, and moved to Lorain in 1974, where she worked at Lorain Products for many years before retiring.
Donna was a member of St. Clement of Ohrid Macedonian Orthodox Church. She was an avid gardener and exquisite cook, particularly with her pastries. She loved spending time with her friends and family, particularly the precious moments with her grandchildren. We will miss her loving nature, devotion to family and friends, quick wit, and love of life.
