Donna Lynn Travisano of Clark, NJ passed peacefully at home on November 13, 2019 surrounded by her beloved family. She was born on February 19, 1960 in Newark, NJ. Donna will be most remembered for her contagious smile and laugh, courageous spirit, and warm heart. Donna was kind, generous, an amazing cook, had a strong work ethic, and loved to shop. More than anything, Donna loved her family. She dedicated her life to her husband, Frank and their three children, Frank, Anthony and Gianna as well as her dog babies, Gotti and Bella. Donna spoiled her immediate family, as well as extended family and friends, with love, laughter, and amazing food. She is survived by her beloved husband, Frank; her children Frank, Anthony and Gianna; her mother, Peggy Curialo; brothers and sisters: Tony Chirichello, Linda Chirichello, Michael Chirichello, Angela Chirichello, David Chirichello; nieces and nephews: Tracy, Toni, Michael, David, Anthony, Rachael, Alexandra, Dominique, Madison, Brooke, James and Makenna; extended family Jacqueline Tinney, James Murphy, Diana Pagan, Jeff Craig, Leah Magielnicki, Jeffrey Craig, and Nicolette Craig.

Her family and friends will never forget the delicious meals she prepared, especially her famous Italian knot cookies. There will forever be a void in the lives of all those she touched. Those who love her will carry on her memory by making her recipes, spending a little too much money at the mall, having a glass of wine, and loving with all their hearts. Donna’s essence will live on through her family, as well as all those fortunate enough to call her a friend. The memorial services will be held on Sunday, November 17, from 4-8pm at Higgins & Bonner Echo Lake Funeral Home, 582 Springfield Ave., Westfield, NJ 07090.
