Donna O'Shaughnessy

Donna M. O’Shaughnessy, 83, of Oil City, formerly of Titusville, passed away peacefully on Sept. 23, 2020 at her residence.

Donna was born on May 24, 1937 in Erie, the daughter of the late Joseph Perino and Gladys I. Hill Sipple. She lived with her father and stepmother, Nelli, in Jamestown, New York, where she graduated from high school.

She was a great mother and loved her sons, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and numerous nephews and nieces.

Donna had worked doing house cleaning. She worked for a time at the old nursing home in Franklin and also in the maternity ward at the former Oil City Hospital.

Donna is survived by her three sons, John Hollobaugh of Oil City, Bo Hollobaugh and wife, Becky, of Eagle Rock, and Joe Hollobaugh and wife, April, of Titusville; a half-sister, Rita M. Sipple Wasson, of State College and many grandchildren, great- grandchildren, nephews and nieces.

In addition to her parents and step-mother, she was preceded in death by half-brothers and sisters, Milton L. Sipple, Edwin E. Sipple, Alfred E. Sipple, Mary A. Sipple Miller, Richard H. Sipple and Shirley Winders Sipple.

We wish to thank all those that worked for Monarch Care Services, especially Amber Deitz, who took care of her these past few years and Asera Care for their care these past few months. She would have thanked all her care givers also for their kindness and support through these dark days of dementia.

Friends may call at the Gordon B. Garrett Funeral Home, 303 N. Washington St., Titusville, Pa. on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., at which time the funeral service will be conducted.

Interment will be in Sunset Hill Memorial Gardens.
