Donna J. O'Brien, of Ambler, PA, died on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at Abington Hospital Jefferson Health. She was 75 years old.

Born in New Castle, PA, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Jean (nee Bender) McMichael. Donna was an alumna of Slippery Rock University, where she received her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Education. Donna had a great love for children and spent her career as an elementary special education teacher in the Upper Dublin School District.

Donna loved to bake, and many friends and coworkers were the lucky recipients of her delicious trays of cookies. She was a talented needle worker and enjoyed knitting and crocheting. Donna cherished her animals and doted on her cat, Cali.

Donna is survived by her beloved husband of 36 years, Robert J. O'Brien, "Bob". She was the step mother of Barry O'Brien, Debbie O'Brien, Linda Young and Robert O'Brien. She is the dear sister of Joseph T. McMichael, II (Connie) of New Castle, PA and Diane Bailey (the late Jim) of Slippery Rock, PA. She was the loving aunt of many nieces and nephews. Donna is the cherished friend and neighbor of Jennifer Laubach and her partner Georgine Timko, and had a grandmotherly love for their children, Benjamin and MacKenzie Timko-Laubach.

Donations in Donna's memory to the American Diabetes Association, 150 Monument Road, Suite 100, Bala Cynwyd, PA. 19004 Diabetes.org would be appreciated by the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was fortunate to have worked with Donna in Upper Dublin. I will always remember her warmth and kindness, her lover of teaching, her wisdom, and, of course, her cookies. Rest In Peace, Donna.
