Obituary of Donna Provencher

Donna Mae (Stedman) Provencher of Dayville, died Monday December 18, 2017 at home. Donna married Bruce J. Provencher on August 3, 1979 and they were faithfully devoted to each other for over 38 years.  Daughter of Muriel (Dumas) Stedman and Philip Stedman, born September 26, 1958 in Willimantic CT.  Donna graduated from Killingly High School in 1976 and shortly after began working for the G. A. MacDonald Insurance Agency.  She was employed there for over 40 years, remaining passionate and excited about her work right up until her final days.

Donna’s greatest legacy is her love that she leaves for her family.  She was unyielding in the way and amount of love she shared with her family.  Her entire adult life was spent giving far more than she received.

Besides her parents and husband she is survived by her sons Brad J Provencher and wife Therese of Boonsboro MD, Kyle J Provencher and wife Jenelle of Dayville CT, and six grandchildren “Grammy's Groupies” Grace (15), Mason (7), Kegan (5), Aria (3), Asher (1), and Kinley (1).  Donna leaves behind a brother, Bruce Stedman, of Westbrook CT.  She was predeceased by a brother Kevin Stedman.  Donna also asked that her coworkers that she cared so deeply about be mentioned, George MacDonald, Denise Rostanzo, Jessica Comeau, and Marianne Guillot.

Donna loved to travel and completed her number one bucket list item by visiting all 50 states.  Her greatest trips were the ones she was able to share with her family, and she cherished the memories that were created by these.
