Donna Lynn Minniti Obituary

Donna Lynn Minniti, 60, of Long Branch, New Jersey, passed away on January 12, 2024. Born on November 26, 1963, in Neptune, NJ, Donna was a loving, kind, and selfless individual who was a pillar of the family and a mother figure to many children in Long Branch. She radiated joy and had a free spirit that touched the lives of all those around her. Donna cared deeply for everyone and was always there to lend a helping hand without question.

Donna is survived by her devoted husband, Nicola Minniti, Sr., her beloved children Stephanie Bond and husband Michael, Nicola Minniti, Jr., and her two favorite little people in the entire world, her grandchildren Michael James and Juliet Rose. She also leaves behind her loving sisters Ann Marie Wiener and Mark, Kathleen Perez and David, as well as her loving brothers William DeMola Jr, Steven DeMola and Linda, and David DeMola and Michele. Donna adored all of her many nieces and nephews, as well as her great nieces and nephews, and always made sure to connect with them through Facetime or phone calls to share her love.

Donna's educational journey included attending G Harold Antrim School in Pont Pleasant Beach, NJ, Asbury Park High School, and the Monmouth County Vocational School of Nursing. She was a dedicated member of the Long Branch Public School PTA, where she served for many years and held a life membership to the New Jersey Congress of Parent and Teachers. Donna also took great pride in being a full-time caregiver to her husband, Nicola.

Donna found her greatest joy in spending time with her family but especially her grandchildren. They loved spending time with their Nannie doing art and crafts, baking delicious treats, play outside, cooking breakfast for Poppa in the mornings, and having dance parties in the living room. These precious moments brought immense happiness to Donna's life and she would always say "My babies bring life to this house".

Donna Lynn Minniti's legacy of love, kindness, and selflessness will forever be cherished by her family and all those whose lives she touched. She will be deeply missed, but her spirit will continue to live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
