Donna Liberatore

May 29, 1944 — March 6, 2019

Donna Liberatore, 74 of Greensburg passed away peacefully on March 6, 2019 surrounded by her loving family.  Donna fought a courageous 2 year battle with liver disease surviving a liver transplant in October 2017 which was donated lovingly by a generous and caring friend that extended Donna’s life for another year and a half.  Donna was born on May 29, 1944 in Pittsburgh to Joseph and Katherine Hensler (both deceased) and graduated from St. George High School.  Donna’s life was guided by her faith in God. Only second to her love of the Lord was her passion and love for her family, beginning with the love of her life for 54 years, Ralph Liberatore.  Donna was the foundation of a busy family and always made sure that her children and her husband’s needs were met.  Donna was an avid tennis player playing several times a week all through her adult life and a frequent golfer.  Donna was passionate about the arts and loved to paint and attend art classes as a member of the Greensburg/Latrobe Art Center.  Donna also had a keen sense of design and ran her own Interior Design business in her 30s and became a travel agent after she moved to Greensburg in 1980.  Donna is survived by her three loving children, Craig Liberatore, Sharie Rodriguez, and Stacie Hartman.  There was nothing that Donna wouldn’t do for them including taking care of Stacie after a serious car accident left her with a traumatic brain injury and hospitalized for 8 months.  The care and love and dedication she showed to her family was the reason that Stacie is alive today.  Donna is also survived by her daughter in law, Ellen Liberatore and her son in laws, Jorge Rodriguez and Terry Hartman.  Donna was never happier than when she was with her 7 grandchildren, Collin Liberatore (21), Jack Liberatore (19), Sarah Liberatore (16), Gabrielle Rodriguez (17), Alexander Rodriguez (16), Jorge Rodriguez (14), and Erica Rodriguez (12).  There wasn’t any place she wouldn’t go to watch each of them participate in their activities.  Donna’s favorite place to be with the family was at their home in Hilton Head Island of over 40 years where many wonderful and lasting memories were made.  Donna is also survived by her brother Larry Hensler and sister in law, Dorothy Jean Hensler.  Family and friends will be received on Monday from 4 to 8pm at the Kepple-Graft Funeral Home located at 524 North Main Street, Greensburg. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday at 10am at Saint Vincent Basilica Parish in Latrobe, PA. Those wishing to attend the service should go directly to the church.  Interment will follow in Saint Vincent Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to Adelphoi, a private not for profit organization, located at 1119 Village Way, Latrobe PA 15650 that assists children, youth, and families to overcome social, emotional and behavioral difficulties.
