Donna Lynn Gillespie, 62, resident of Santa Fe, Texas, passed from this life, Wednesday, September 27, 2023. Donna was born May 20, 1961 in Texas City, Texas to parents Benjamin and Marilyn Lowrey.

Donna grew up in Galveston County. Her career spanned many years with NASA as a publication specialist.  She was a member of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Dickinson, Texas.

  2. To Michael and family: Michael, you and I met once many many years ago as Donna very proudly introduced you to me at a social event. Donna loved you and she loved her family. Although, I have not worked with Donna in many, many years, the news of her death really struck a chord with me. I loved Donna as a co-worker and as a casual work buddy. Donna was an awesome, sweet, devoted, hardworking, dedicated, respectful, and kind woman. She was truly an expert and a ‘go-to’ in her field of technical documentation. Donna assumed the burden of work with a sense of purpose. She gently educated (and re-educated) her customers about the correct way to execute their requirements. When Donna voiced her opinion, she had a special look on her face that let you know that she was not playing around. My deepest sympathies to the family, friends, and colleagues who will miss her.
