Donna Robinson

Donna Lee Robinson, Felton, passed away Saturday, May 29, 2021 surrounded by her loving family, at the age of 70.  She was the daughter of the late Louise and Lester Blades, Sr.

Donna retired from the Delaware Department of Transportation where she worked in the Division of Planning.  She was known around the office for her many costumes she would wear during holidays.  She was also a member of the Frederica Senior Center.

A breast cancer survivor, Donna lived life to the fullest each day.  She was a goofy, energetic lady, who loved to eat and to travel, and was up for any adventure.  Donna was generous, giving, kind, and easy going.  She was a huge Disney enthusiast. The only thing loved more than being a Mother was being a Grandmother.  She attended almost all of the grandchildren’s activities from sporting events, field trips, to award ceremonies.  She will be dearly missed.

Donna is survived by her children, Angela Gott, Brian Robinson (Tricia), and Eric Robinson (Kimberly); six grandchildren; and brother, Lester Blades, Jr (Mary Jean).

Interment was in Hollywood Cemetery, Harrington.

Donna joined the Felton Community Fire Company Auxiliary in 2008 and was a faithful volunteer until her illness wouldn’t allow her to participate.  She will be remembered as always having a smile and helping in any way she could.  Her mother, Louise Voshell Blades, was an Auxiliary member; her grandfather, Harold Voshell Sr. was an FCFC charter member; her Uncle, Harold Voshell Jr. was a life member; and her Aunt, Charlotte Voshell Gingrich, is currently an Auxiliary 50+ year member.
