Obituary of Donna M. Peters
Donna M. Petro Peters, age 77, of Bridgeport, passed away on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Worcester, MA on June 28, 1941, she was a daughter of the late Elia and Elefteria Dimitraki Petro and was a longtime resident of Bridgeport.

Norden Club and Singles Under Sail. She enjoyed sailing, scuba diving, skiing, tennis, music, dancing, traveling, reading and participating in book club. Donna lived from the heart. Everything she did, she did with love, passion and joy. Her smile was infectious and always present, and the warmth and shine of her personality touched everyone. Donna was a lover of life and people, and the people she loved above all, were her family. There was nothing they could ask for that she would refuse, but more often than not, she gave of her heart without asking. She had many friends she cherished, a career to which she was dedicated, and an array of interests that took her around the world. Donna lived her life with boundless energy and boundless love.
