Card shower planned for Don Donovan

A card shower is being held to celebrate the 80th birthday of Don Donovan of Princeton.

Don was born July 13, 1939, in Troy Grove Township. He grew up in Mendota and moved to Princeton in 1972. Don was a pressman for Tribune Printing for more than 30 years.

Celebrating with him is his wife, Pat, and children, Steve (deceased), Marty (Brenda) Donovan, Greg (Pam) Donovan, Deb (Jeff) Joiner and Jill Swanson-Hullinger (Bill). Don also has nine grandchildren, Jeannette and Kaitlynn Donovan, Ryan and Mary Donovan, Cory Donovan, Jason Pennington, and Shelly, Alison and Janey Joiner, and three great-grandchildren, Addie and twins Norah and Maryn.

Don enjoys music, and played the pedal steel guitar and mandolin in a family band several years ago, Clear Creek.

The family will be celebrating with a dinner in his honor. Cards may be sent to 418 W. Peru St., Princeton, IL 61356.
