Donna M. Sweitzer

May 18, 1948 — March 10, 2021

Donna M. Sweitzer, 72, of Wyomissing, formerly of Stony Creek, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, in Reading Hospital. Born in Reading, PA, she was the daughter of the late Carl I. and Martha B. Weand Sweitzer. Donna was a graduate of Mt. Penn High School Class of 1966 and lived most of her life in Ocean City, NJ. She worked as the Activities Director for Our Lady's Residence Nursing Home in Pleasantville, NJ for 27 years. She was pre-deceased by her brother, Carl L. Sweitzer; with whom she shared a very special bond. She was Mom to her beloved fur baby Emily, who crossed over the rainbow bridge and was her work partner; and is survived by her mother's cat Tiger Lilly who stole her affections. She had an amazing heart and a distinct laugh. Donna was loved by all who she encountered in her life. She loved the shore life, but enjoyed it the most in the Fall when all the "Shoobies" went back home.

Donna is survived by her niece, Jill M. Strause, partner of Gilbert; nephew Michael Sweitzer, husband of Callan; and sister-in-law Ellen Fritz. She is also survived by her great-nieces Justine and Brody Lee; and great-nephew Jacob.
