Donna R Ronco

March 23, 1945 — May 19, 2024


Donna R. Ronco, an outstanding woman of determination and compassion, was born in Winchendon, MA, on March 23, 1945.  Donna was known for her exceptional work ethic. She began her career at Ray Plastic, continued on to Winchendon Savings Bank, and eventually moved on to the Winchendon Housing Authority, where she demonstrated her commitment to her community.  Donna's passion extended beyond her professional life. Her hobbies, bowling, volleyball, and later in her life, bingo, showcased her vigor and competitive spirit. Her biggest enjoyment was spending time with her grandchildren.  She was a devoted member of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, where her faith and kindness radiated throughout the congregation.

Donna's legacy lives on through her loving family. She is survived by her children, Renee Lupien and Ryan Ronco, and their respective spouses, Jeffrey Bowser and Tamu Ronco. Her cherished grandchildren, Isaac and Dylan Lupien, and her great-granddaughter Willow, will undoubtedly continue to be inspired by their grandmother's wisdom and strength. Donna's siblings, Ronald, Craig, Wayne Grincewicz, Cheryl Leber, and Betsy George, remember her as a loving sister who was always there to lend a hand or a word of advice. She also leaves many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Ruth Grincewicz, her beloved husband, Kenneth Ronco, and her brother, Frank Grincewicz.
