Donna Mae Makie
Pine Bush, NY
Donna Mae Makie, a 40-year resident of the area, passed away on Wednesday, February 17, 2021, at home. She was 73 years old. Donna was born on January 27, 1948 in Pine City Village, Minnesota to the late Nels Makie and Pearl Evalyn McKay. She was very proud of her time as a former radio sales/account executive for WGNY FM, devoted her time every year for the past 7 years to work on the board of elections in Pine Bush, NY and loved to donate whatever she could to the A.S.P.C.A to help stray animals in need.
Survivors include her daughter Erika O’Brien and her husband Keith, grandchildren Christopher, Arianna and Joshua of Wallkill, NY; daughter Katerina Margulis-Mosen of Tuckahoe, NY; and son Neil Margulis and his wife Marianna Kleyman of Acton, MA. She is further survived by several nieces, nephews and cousins. One special niece, Cheri Kresel and her husband Matt of Hudson, WI, stand out for all the support they have given along with their long phone calls ever since her sister (Cheri’s mom) passed.
Donna is predeceased by her loving sister Darlene Schutz of Newport, MN.
Cremation will take place at Maple Hill Crematory in Archbald, PA, with burial of her ashes, along with the ashes of her beloved cat “Flip Fuzzborn” to be held in her hometown of Sandstone, MN at a later date. A celebration of her life will be held for close family and friends at a later date due to the pandemic. Memorial contributions can be made to the Walden Humane Society, 2489 Albany Post Rd. Walden, NY 12586 / 845-778-5115 .To leave an online condolence, please visit www.wmgaganfuneralhome.com
