 In Memoriam - DONNA JANOTA
With sadness we write that Donna Janota of Duck Key passed away on August 26, 2004.

Donna L. Janota, nee Guschke, is survived by her husband, Roy; and children Neil, Kenneth (Colleen), James (Marsha) and Richard, and sisters Carol (Dale) Blue and Joyce (Robert) Whalen. Donna was grandmother to 10 grandchildren.

Church services were held in Darien, Illinois. Plans call for Donna's ashes to be scattered on the ocean once Roy returns to the Keys. 

Donna was very active in the Marathon Garden Club and served in many capacities including Club President. Donna was a master at her floral designs, whether in the Oriental manner or Traditional Designs. She also was creative in the Garden Club Christmas Tree exhibit. She decorated a tree and assisted other tree decorators who needed her expert advice.

In lieu of flowers the family requested that donations be made to Marathon Garden Club, Marathon, Florida.

Donna helped with the centerpieces for the Dinner dance for the Duck Key Property Owners' Association for many years.

The kindness of Donna was especially noted on holidays such as Thanksgiving. Donna felt that new residents to Duck Key should not celebrate Thanksgiving alone. She and husband, Roy would graciously invited newcomers to celebrate Thanksgiving dinner in their home.

We also remember fondly dancing lessons Donna and Roy organized at their home for interested couples. She and Roy were a great dancing couple and hosted dancing classes at their home and arranged for dancing instructors.
