It is with a heavy heart that we sadly announce the passing of our mom, Donna J. Cavey née Crouch of Pasadena, MD on December 18, 2023. Donna was surrounded by her family and passed away peacefully.
Our mother, Donna, was one of the strongest and kindest women you would have met, and our family was blessed to have her. Donna graduated from Severna Park HS in 1965. After graduating, she worked at NSA for a short time, then a few other administrative jobs before she went on to pursue a successful career in Real Estate, where she managed local real estate offices and served as President of Anne Arundel County Association of Realtors for a period of time.
In 1999, she met her partner and love of her life, Roger Emory. They were an inseparable, happy couple. Donna was a wonderful and loving sister, mother, grandmother and aunt who gave her all to her family. We will never be able to fill the space left behind by her passing.
Donna was predeceased by her mother Hilda, her father Jean, her sister Carole McKeldin and her partner Roger. Donna is survived by her daughter Lisa Anderson (Michael), her son Brian Cavey (Amy), granddaughters Morgan Burley (Cameron), Summer Jenkins (Matthew) and Jonna Anderson and grandson Kian Anderson, her sister Janice Gavin (Joe), her cousin/sister Sharon Vargo (Allen) and her brother-in-law Richard McKeldin. Donna is also survived by a number of nieces and nephews and cousins.
Please consider a donation in Donna’s name to Hospice of the Chesapeake. https://www.hospicechesapeake.org/giving/ways-to-give/
We are working on getting a memorial event planned and will update with that info as soon as we have it.
