FRAMINGHAM – On July 19th of 2022, heaven welcomed home Donna Tognacci who died unexpectedly due to health complications at the age of 46. 

Donna was born a child of the military in Germany on October 9, 1975.

She was the daughter to Debra (McCarthy) Milan and the late Anthony Tognacci, Jr.

She was raised in Framingham, which is where she established her roots and formed close bonds. She always had a helping hand to lend and was known to put others before herself. Her loved ones cherished her for her generosity, as her heart of gold shone brightly. She was an extremely loving mother to her daughter Mariah, and a best friend to her older sister Lori, who could always be found together.

Donna was a woman full of passions: she loved fashion, interior design, singing and dancing to music, camping with her family, and cooking for those around her. Her daughter Mariah fondly remembers the pizzas that Donna would make for her from scratch every Friday when she was a child. 

In addition to her mother, Donna is survived by her cherished daughter Mariah Ross of Georgia; loving sisters Lori Ortiz, Kristina Tognacci and Michelle Tognacci.  Adored nieces, and nephews; Alycia Febus, Alexandra Ortiz, Avery Casado, Liam Tognacci, Graham Guesella, and Christian Casado.

Relatives and friends are kindly invited to a time of visitation at the Norton Funeral Home 53 Beech Street (corner of Union Ave) Framingham from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday August 6, 2022.
