She also was the first female Shipfitter at the Philadelphia Naval Yard.

There was so much more than just work for Carol. She had many interests and hobbies but family was the most important thing to her. She enjoyed coaching her daughter’s softball teams for Collingdale when they were growing up and was at every football practice and game of her son’s in his career. Carol loved her Phillies! And even more than that, she loved watching her grandchildren play sports and dance. Spending time with them was one of her favorite things to do. She also enjoyed vacationing with her family in Cape May and Wildwood and with friends since childhood in the mountains. She was a unique and special woman who will be missed by all who knew her.

Carol was the beloved wife of Wayne J. Donahue, Sr.; the loving mother of Carol A. Gibbons, Melissa A. Donahue and Wayne J.
