Martha Joan Donio

April 12, 1940


DONIO – Martha Joan, age 81, of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, passed away on June 21, 2021 after a lengthy illness.  Born on April 12, 1940 in Jenners, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of Joseph and Dominica (Calderone) Donio. 

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Joseph and sister, Antoinette Shadron.

Martha is survived by her sisters, Mary Jane Canonico of Kennett Square and Nancy Lee married to Kenneth Gowarty of Jenners.  She is also survived by a niece, a nephew and many aunts, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins.

Martha enjoyed watching I Love Lucy and The Three Stooges on television. She also enjoyed putting puzzles together.  She loved her purple nail polish and many varieties of perfume.  For 28 years, Martha attended Handi-Crafters in Coatesville, PA where she made shoe box kits for service men. She was always so happy bringing home her paycheck of 14 cents every Friday and proudly giving it to her mom. We will all miss her very much.

A viewing will be from 6-8PM on Thursday, June 24, 2021 at Hoffman Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 409 Main Street, Boswell, where a Vigil for the Deceased will be held.  Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11AM on Friday, June 25, 2021 at All Saints Catholic Church, 325 Quemahoning St., Boswell, with Rev. Fr. Aron Maghsoudi, Celebrant.

Burial will follow the Funeral Mass in Mt. Carmel Cemetery, near Jennerstown.
