Donna Lee Johnson, age 67, of Greencastle, PA, passed away at the Chambersburg Hospital on Wednesday, December 21, 2016. Born on September 12, 1949, in Hagerstown, MD, she was the daughter of the late Glenn and Doris Lowery Johnson.
Ms. Johnson worked for the Greencastle Antrim School District for nearly thirty years. She had a gift for working with children, and spent the majority of her career in the Elementary School where she worked as a teacher’s assistant with the learning support section. She retired in 2015.

Donna was a 1967 graduate of Greencastle Antrim High School.
