Donna Leah Jerome

August 26, 1940 — March 6, 2023

Summerville

Donna Leah Jerome, 82, passed away in Summerville, SC on March 6, 2023 after a long battle with COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). She was surrounded by loved ones and family friends, and had been in contact with out-of-state family before passing.
 
Donna was born on August 26, 1940 to Hillary and Cora Harrison Jamison, and grew up and graduated in Clairton, PA. After high school, she pursued a career as a key punch operator at several different banks in the Pittsburgh, PA, Los Angeles, CA and Chicago, IL areas.
 
Donna enjoyed cooking, and her specialty was making pierogies. All throughout her life she loved chocolate. In her later years, she enjoyed eating waffles with Nutella and cream cheese, sometime twice a day! Three of her biggest past times were smoking cigarettes, listening to country music, and watching her favorite shows on TV. In her younger and middle adult years, she enjoyed driving (locally and out-of-state) to visit family. One year, she hosted a high school exchange student from Germany, and had a chance to visit him and his family after he graduated from high school in Germany. Donna loved children and was a big part of her grandchildren's lives.
 
Donna was predeceased by her parents Hillary & Cora Jamison, husband Russell Jerome, daughter Vicki Knudson, son Russ (Rusty) Jerome, brothers Howard (Howdy) and James (Jimmy) Jamison, and sister Beatrice (Bea) Zoscak. She is survived by her daughter Robin Patterson (Jim) of Summerville, SC and brother Hillary Gene Jamison (Marge) of Liberty Boro, PA. She is also survived by her grandchildren Tom Reitzel (Danielle), Faith Patterson, Hope Seyler (Daniel), Chelsea Knudson, Brandon Knudson, and great grandchildren Zoey and Brody. Plus, she leaves behind beloved nephews and nieces (from Jamison & Jerome families), cousins, and friends.
