  1. Dear Maglietto family,
    Dona was such a bright, giving, loving and caring person. I can’t imagine Rye High School or the Greenhorn valley without her. She touched hundreds and hundreds of lives with her genuine, caring smile, enthusiasm, and support. I wish I could have made the trip back to Colorado for her memorial service, but please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers as is Dona.

  4. I had the privilege of meeting Dona when I worked at Rye High. I met her in 1999 when I started working at the High School. Although, I was only there for 2 years, Dona made an indelible imprint on my life. As was stated so often at her memorial service, she was a friend to all. Her smile was infectious and her caring personality will be a constant source of inspiration to me. As I was driving to the service, from Aurora, I was thinking about her “bug” and wondering if she still had it. What a wonderful surprise to see it when I walked up to the school entrance. It brought a smile to my face, just like all of the memories I have of her. I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to all of her family. Sincerely, Renee Dwyer
