                             of washington

                    in the house of representatives

                         Monday, March 27, 2017

  Ms. DelBENE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the late Donnetta 
  Donnetta spent her life dedicated to improving her local community. 
Her 28 years as an educator, including many in the Monroe School 
District, is a testament to her steadfast commitment to her students.
  After her career in public education, Donnetta spent 32 years in 
public service, serving on the Monroe City Council, Monroe Civil 
Service Commission, U.S. 2 Safety Coalition, Snohomish County Senior 
Services Board of Directors, Snohomish County League of Women Voters, 
and two terms as the Mayor of Monroe.
  Donnetta had such a positive impact on so many people throughout our 
community. Her kind and compassionate spirit and willingness to take on 
tough tasks will surely be missed. Although she has passed on, her 
memory and impact will continue to live on.
  My heart goes out to her husband: Fred; her sons and daughters-in-
law: Scott and Stacey and Matt and Kimberly; her grandchildren; and all 
of her family and friends.
