Donna L. Marston

RICHFORD – Donna L. Marston, age 68, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on Monday, October 26, 2020, at her home in Richford.

She was born in St. Albans on May 4, 1952 to Natalie Rushford and the late Arthur W. Marston.

Donna grew up in Texas and graduated from Irving High School. In the 1970’s she moved with her family to Montgomery where they lived for 38 years, and most recently was living with her mother in Richford. 

Donna was admired for her incredible work ethic and independence. She worked for the Montgomery School House for several years and then for the past 22 years was employed by Vermont Precision Tools where she not only made a career but many friendships that she cherished. Donna was famous for her decorating abilities and spent countless hours perfecting scenes for every holiday season and celebration. She enjoyed crafting, creating centerpieces and floral arrangements, going for rides, and hunting for hidden treasures at lawn sales. For those who knew Donna best they will remember her for sticking to her guns, and remaining a loyal and trustworthy friend that others could always depend on.

She is survived by her son, Kevin Marston of Scottsdale, AZ; her mother and best friend, Natalie Marston of Richford; sister-in-law, Nancy Marston of Richford; niece, Christy Marston of St. Albans; nephew, Patrick Marston of Richford; several cousins; and many dear co-workers whom Donna thought of as family. 

Besides her father, Donna was predeceased by her siblings, Dale, Arthur E., Mark, and Sheila Marston; and her aunts and uncles.

In keeping with Donna’s wishes there will be no services.
