Donna Knaub Hixon, 64, of the Village of Union Deposit, Hershey, went to be with her Lord and Savior on August 6, 2021. Donna was the daughter of the late Elwood and Hazel Sipe, and is survived by her husband, Ronald Hixon, and three children, Nathaniel, Donovan and Laura, one step-son, Zachary, four grandchildren with a new one expected early next year, her sister, Pam Strange and her brother, David Sipe. Donna lived her life to serve those she loved. She was a beacon of light to those who knew her. Her radiant smile and joyous laughter could brighten anyone’s day. Donna was full of compassion for others and would always be eager to help where she could. Donna’s passing is a tremendous loss to us all but we rejoice that she is now cradled in the arms of Jesus, free from pain and discomfort, basking in the glow of His love.
