Donna J. Florio

April 20, 1957 — October 4, 2022

St. Albans

ST. ALBANS – Donna J. Florio, age 65, passed away on Tuesday, October 4, 2022 surrounded by her loving family at the Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington, Massachusetts.

She was born in St. Albans on April 20, 1957 to the late Alfred & Joyce (Richard) Zweeres.

Donna moved frequently during her childhood, but as fate had it, she met her life partner in high school. Phillip and Donna both graduated from Manchester High School in Connecticut. They got married on January 8, 1977 and have been inseparable since. They raised their family of four boys and have lived in St. Albans for the past 34 years. Family was everything to Donna. She was the happiest when her home was full of love and laughter, kids, and grandkids. Donna found joy in the simple things in life, pretty roses, and lilacs, watching her favorite movie, Grease, enjoying a cup of morning coffee, and milk and peanut butter crackers before bed. Donna never fell short of showing her family the most love and support.      

She is survived by her husband and soul mate, Phillip Florio Sr. of St. Albans; four sons, Phillip Florio Jr. and his wife Heather of Maine, Alfred Florio of St. Albans, Michael Florio and his wife Samantha of Alburgh, and Daniel Florio also of Maine; 12 grandchildren, Anthony Florio, Tyanne Martin, Alyssa Florio, Dominick Florio, Jakhiem Johnson, Christian Florio, Michael Florio, Piper Florio, Nathaniel Florio, Jadin Lamotte, Krista Florio and Riley Florio. Donna was predeceased by her parents, Alfred and Joyce.
