She is survived by her son, Scott Cherry (Melissa) of Lubbock; daughter-in-law, Jessica Howell of Wolfforth; granddaughters Ashley and Justine; soon to be born great-granddaughter Isabella; mother, Jo Bray of Levelland and sister Vickie Redford (Bob) of Levelland. The family wishes to offer a special thank you to Janet and Sue and LaDonna's many friends at the Residences at Shadow Hills and the staff at the Plaza of Lubbock for their love, support and care for LaDonna during her final years of life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in LaDonna's honor to the Senior Activity fund at the Residences at Shadow Hills of Lubbock or the American Heart Association.
