Donna Marie Craig

Introduction of
Donna Marie Craig

Born on June 8, 1957 in Rochelle Park, New Jersey to Joyce and Carmine Licursi, Donna was a beautiful baby. Her parents instilled in her the importance of education at a very young age.

Upon graduation from high school, Donna went to Montclair State University and received a Bachelor of Science Degree, a 4 year course that Donna completed in 3 years. After graduation from Montclair State Donna started her career at ATT as a system engineer. While working at ATT Bell Labs,Donna went to Cornell University and received her Masters Degree in Engineering.

Donna passed on July 8, 2020 from Pancreatic Cancer and it was her wish to start a scholarship fund to ensure that young people who needed financial help in their education, she could help them. She also wished Jesus Christ would be a part of the recipient(s) education process and He would give them the strength and peace to continue with their goal.

That is why Donna wanted Westside Church, the church she loves, to be a part of that scholarship.
