Donna Dandridge

Donna Dandridge, 79, of Holliston passed away surrounded by her loved ones after a battle with lung cancer on April 10. She was born March 31, 1944, to parents Karl and Gladys Nilges.

She will be lovingly remembered by her three children and their spouses, Karlton (Elizabeth Sue) Woods of Nevada, Felicia (Eric) Lang of Ohio, and Michael (Beth) Mellen of Massachusetts; seven grandchildren, Michelle Woods, Karlton Woods Jr., Jessica Berzsenyi, Jennifer Honkonen, Evan Lang, Braeden Mellen and Addison Mellen; as well as three great-grandchildren.

Donna was proceeded in death by her loving husband of 17 years, Frank Dandridge, and siblings Mary, Gary, Kathy and Karl Jr.

Donna was born in Framingham, the oldest of 10 children. Donna was a longtime resident of Framingham. Upon retiring from the Hostess/Wonder Bread Company in Natick in 1999, she resided in Delray Beach, Florida. She moved back to Massachusetts in 2018 and was most recently a resident at Fairview Estates in Hopkinton.

Donna was a big-hearted woman who loved her family immensely and had a knack for making friends wherever she went. She was a devoted, hard-working, single mother of three children.

Donna will be fondly remembered by many for her lifelong love of bingo, whether for big money or, more recently, for dimes. Her children fondly recall how a big win would be celebrated with late-night Chinese food. Others may remember her as their cheerful Avon representative.

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers for Donna and her family.
