Donna M. Roberts
Donna Mae Roberts (nee: Green), 63, a resident of Hebron, IL, passed away September 25, 2021 at Aurora Medical Center in Burlington, WI. She was born June 10, 1958 in Lake Forest, IL to Lennie and Alvie Green. To know Donna was to love her, because she loved life. Donna Mae was a free spirit who lived life on her own terms. She was an avid baseball fan, bringing an electric energy to the stands. Her energy didn’t end there, because she loved music, could find a groove with anything and danced to her heart’s content, teaching her kids all her greatest moves. The risks Donna took while working for the C.I.A. gave her the thick skin needed for her adventurous life. Donna enjoyed spending time and being with the love of her life, Mike, her loving boyfriend. Donna’s greatest joy was the family she created with her beautiful children, Micah, Becky (David) and Adam (Cora). Known by “Nana” to some and “Grandma” by others, Donna was so very proud of her children and grandchildren. She loved watching her grandchildren grow and spending time with them all, which meant everything to her. Donna was fun, beautiful and as charming as anyone could be. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends, because to know Donna, was to lover her. We will miss you. Donna Mae is survived by her boyfriend of 11 years, Michael Armburst, her mother Lennie Green, her children Micah Cassel of Grayslake, Becky (David) Arroyo of Grayslake, and Adam (Cora) Cassel of Grayslake, her grandchildren Veronica (Chris) Barrett of England, Ellen Cassel of Grayslake, Oliver Florez of Grayslake, Reichert Arroyo of Grayslake, Logan Arroyo of Grayslake, and Iam Cassel of Grayslake, her great-grandson Sebastian Barrett, and her siblings Kathy (Julio) Polanco of Waukegan, IL and Tony (Sarah) Green of Round Lake.
