Donna Louise Groh (Weber) - Rochester, NY - Rochester Cremation

Greece, NY: With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Donna Louise Groh (Weber), our loving and devoted mother, grandmother and friend to all whose lives she touched, at the age of 77 on 12/28/2020. She died peacefully with a Yankees hat on, a Notre Dame shirt, holding a bear given to her by her granddaughter Karissa and gripping a 4 year sobriety coin that was dedicated to her by her grandson Ryan, she was so proud of his sobriety and will forever be his angel, and listening 1 last time to her favorite song playing How Great Thou Art .

Donna was born to Jane and Victor Weber on 01/17/1943 in Rochester, New York.

Donna enjoyed spending time with her family, and friends. Her greatest joy though, was her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, she treasured and embraced every moment with them and was looking forward to meeting the 2 new great grandkids . Donna had a vivacious personality that everyone loved to be around. She was an avid Yankees, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Donna even got her 1st tattoo with the Yankee symbol and #2 at the age of 61!

Donna had 1 sister Mary Kay Schliff, and 1 brother Gary (Ann) Weber and 4 nephews Tim and Scott Schliff, Kevin (Julie) Weber and Mike (Guthrie) Groh. All whom loved her dearly and will never forget her tenacity, charm, and smile that would light up a room.

      Mary Kay….living 1500 miles away in Texas you slowly lose contact with people you grew up with. But it is so hard when you know you’ll never see them again. We got a chance to pick on each other on FB over sports teams. I noticed she stopped commenting a couple months ago. What did she have? Again my condolences to you and her whole family. She will be missed by a lot of friends.

    Donna, when Mary Kay and I were preteens, being annoying wanting to hang around with the cool older kids, you were so patient. And then when we got older, you very conveniently looked the other way when we stole a beer or two. I never heard you raise your voice, always had a smile- more like a smirk, that my are me happy. You will be sorely missed, but the crazy stories about the fun you instigated will always make your friends & family laugh. You were one of a kind. Rest in Peace. 💜

    My heart goes out to my cousin Gary and his families with the passing of Donna. Whenever passing through the 19th ward I would stop by to spend a little time with them. We always had nice conversations of this and that. I will miss all the baseball chats we shared and seeing photos of her grandchildren. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed. God rest her soul and shine light on her families.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Groh family. May you find peace and comfort from God through this trying time. Donna will be truly missed. RIP Donna.

    I am saddened to hear of Donna’s death. I remember the days when we were very young and we would go to Post Ave with my parents Jack and Kay Popp and the Bosdyks. They were really the infamous wild threesome couple. My sister in law Cathy Popp worked for years at K Mart with Donna and kept me informed on many joyful happenings. Donna was surely a go getter and was filled with Love for her whole family. You are all in my prayers and thoughts. Kathy Popp Schuler

    Donna and I were childhood friends. I have so many memories of our parents and the Popps sharing so many good times. Until we meet again, my friend, Rest In Peace ❤️

    Donna and I went to West High School together. We were in sewing/cooking class together and laugh, oh my gosh, we had such fun. Didn;t get to see her too often after high school, but when we did we always had fond memories to rehash. Rest in Peace my friend and may God bless.

    When the gates of heaven open wide for you Donna, I hope you rush into the arms of your parents. How you and Gary and MaryKay and your PARENTS survived the years of a home that tolerated so many teens is a miracle. It wasn’t just occasionally, it was constant. “Ma” and “Jr.” practically ran a Post Ave. B & B. So that reminds me of you, Donna. B & B can also stand for baseball and babies, your great loves. (and also stray pets.) I don’t think they’ll be calling strikes in heaven, just home runs. You will love your new home. My prayers accompany you on this journey. You will be missed.

    My deepest sympathy to the Groh and Weber families, the kids and grandkids. She will be sorely missed. I’m glad I connected with her on FB. May God comfort all of you during this difficult time.

    Sorry for the late condolences I just found out today. I always remembered the many conversations we had
