Obituary of "Donna" Colceri

Jeanette Donna (Ryan) Colceri, 91, of the Valley area of Syracuse, passed away on June 16, 2022. She was born in Auburn, NY in 1931 to the late John and Jeanette (Ringwood) Ryan. After graduating high school, she went on to earn her Associates Degree in nursing. Donna's family moved to the Valley, where she worked for several years as an RN for the private practice of a general physician. Donna lived in the Valley for the remainder of her life.

It was their attendance at Syracuse University that led to the union of Donna and John Colceri. They were wed in June of 1953, and together they built a loving home and raised three sons. Donna was a long time communicant of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, in Syracuse.

Along with her parents, Donna is predeceased by her loving husband John (2009). She is survived by her sons: John Thomas, Daniel Shannon, (both of KY) and Michael Edward Colceri, of Syracuse; four grandchildren, Adam and Brittany; Breanna and Wyatt; and three great grandchildren, Cameron, Johnny, and Paul.

Per her wishes, services will be private for family only. She will be buried alongside her husband at Onondaga Valley Cemetery.
