Remembering Donna

The KSB Family lost one of our own this week with the passing of Donna Koster, R.N.  Donna taught countless people how to be a better nurse, and she taught all of us how to be a better person.

All of us have a Donna story, and mine is based on Donna’s love for hockey.  Her game stories and enthusiasm always left me smiling.

My thanks to those of you from the KSB Family that were and will be there for Donna and her husband, Steve through her illness and passing as well as the challenging days ahead.

Donna, thank you for making KSB the best place for patients to receive care and the best place to work.

    Donna was an inspiring soul who left her mark on all those that crossed her path. As a new graduate in 1989, I was fortunate to have her as a role model. As my roles changed, I still relied on her expertise as I contacted her after hours (whether she was on call or not) to give me direction with numerous surgery inquiries. Donna always made time to help others. Sympathies to her family and KSB on our great loss.

    What a tragic loss for her family, her coworkers, the KSB family. There aren’t any words. Condolences for all of us who will miss her quiet, funny, sensible, steady spirit.

    I had carpal tunnel surgery a couple of years ago at KSB. I had the good fortune to have Donna as my nurse. I had a slight reaction to my pain medication and Donna was a god send. When I went back a few weeks later for my other wrist Donna requested that she be my nurse. That’s the love and compassion Donna had for her patients. I love and miss you Donna.

    Donna was one of those people that no one could ever say a negative word about. She was always smiling, willing to pitch in, had words of encouragement, supportive, loving, and oh so smart. I always admired Donna. She was one of a kind and one of the best. We had been friends since Junior High School. My heart aches due to her passing. We will all miss her so. Blessings to Steve, Matt, Scott & Jackie, and her Dad and brothers and their families too. Lisa (Spears) Lollar
