Artist puts paint to canvas for 8 decades



More of her paintings are in her bedroom. She also points out she painted the furniture in that room. “It was dark,” she said of the now white furniture. It wasn’t too long ago she added a border below the bedroom ceiling.

Before she married her late husband, Donald Sr., she worked in an office in the Montour County Courthouse. She has two sons Donald Jr. and James who live nearby.

“I enjoy it. I’m not one who can loaf. I always had quite a bit of ambition. I started as a child and never quit,” she said, adding she has slowed some through the years.

“But I still go,” she said.

And that includes maintaining her home. “Up until a few years ago, I had all the family for Thanksgiving and Christmas and in the summer to swim,” she said.

She still swims in her pool. “I’m in it every day it’s fit,” she said.
