Donna Craig, HOS Life Member and Friend to Many, Passes Away


Donna Craig, the first female AOS president and a past president of HOS, passed away on November 6, 2022. Donna was an emerita judge in the Houston Judging Center for many years. Her activities in both arenas were many, but you would have had to drag it out of her. She never talked about herself if she could help it—a very humble person.

The service for Donna will be held on Saturday, December 3, at 2:00pm at the Eagle Trace Community Center located at 14703 Eagle Vista Drive, Houston, Texas 77077.

Those who were fortunate to know her will miss her friendship and vibrant personality.
