Donna Redman passed away August 5, 2016 after a long battle with cancer. She was the daughter of Ralph A. Spencer and Marie Lucille Albert Spencer. A graduate of Brewer High School Class of 1965, Donna grew up on a farm. After farming she helped run the family's roadside stand where she learned the love of helping other people. She was an avid bowler for 25 years at Bangor Brewer Bowling Lanes. Donna loved knitting, making afghans and especially giving them away. She worked as a substitute teacher for the Hermon School Department for many years; and for the past 15 years she worked in retail which she truly loved. Most of all, Donna loved her family and friends.
She was predeceased by her parents and two brothers Reginald A. Spencer and Ralph A. Spencer. Donna is survived by her husband Gerald of Bangor, her son Peter Redman and wife Julie of Kenduskeag, two daughters, Ann Redman and Tanya Redman of Hermon, a sister Verna Nelson and her husband Ray of Carmel, a brother Robert Spencer, several nieces and cousins, a special cousin Patty Duran, her best friend of 50 years Shirley Finniff of Hagerstown, MD., and many special friends.
Donna would like to thank the Bangor Rehab nursing staff, especially one of her CNA's Barb and her therapists Ashley and Destiny for all their patience, understanding and care.
