Donna Rae Cole Bridgeman passed away on Monday, October 25, 2021, at the young age of 69.  Donna was born in Houston, Texas to Don Harris Cole, Sr. and Dorothy Marie (McKinney) Cole.  She attended Charles H. Milby High School.  In June of 1974, Donna married Robert Eugene Bridgeman and they started a family.  Her daughter, Heather Renee Bridgeman Ringley was her pride and joy.  Donna was a member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority where she served as Treasurer and photographer.  She loved taking photos at every event she attended.  Donna’s laughter and smile will live in many hearts and will not be forgotten by those who loved her.  An important thing to know about Donna is that she survived and fought cancer for many years.
