   Donna Ann McGeorge, 63, of Angels Camp, passed away peacefully on Tuesday September 26, 2017 at Adventist Health in Sonora. after a short battle
with brain cancer.

   After retirement, she focused all of her time and energy on her grandchildren. She found great joy in watching them participate in sports and would attend nearly every game, passing on her competitive spirit.

   Donna was a huge Giants fan and loved to take her grandchildren to Spring Training in Arizona every year, especially collecting autographs from players.

   Outside of sports, Donna loved to go camping with her husband and grandchildren. Her favorite spot was Spicer's Reservoir, where the fifth wheel would be parked all summer long.

   She also loved playing Bunko n Friday nights, afternoon card games with the ladies, Elvis, country music and baking sweets for her family.  Her elaborate birthday cakes are legendary.

   As she requested, there will be a private memorial service for immediate family members only. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to either the American Brain Tumor Association or to the Calaveras County Humane Society.

   Angels Memorial Chapel is handling arrangements.
