Donna Zazzarino Baker Obituary, Death Cause – On Sunday, April 2, 2023, Donna L. (Zazzaro) Baker peacefully transitioned from this life with her devoted family by her side. Her age was 54. She was born in Bristol and spent her childhood in the Kenwood neighborhood of Levittown. For the past 18 years, she has called Montgomery County, Pennsylvania her home.
Donna attended Bishop Conwell High School and Holy Family University before completing her master’s degree at Gratz College in Philadelphia. She graduated with the class of 1986 from Bishop Conwell High School. She spent several years working as a classroom instructor for the Bristol Township School District, the last of which she spent at the Brookwood Elementary School.
Donna was a devoted runner who had competed in four marathons. She also enjoyed spending her weekends at the dog park, writing in her notebook, preparing meals, and making her own pasta from scratch. She was addicted to real crime and enjoyed listening to crime podcasts and watching the ID channel, but the time she got to spend with her children and watching them participate in their many hobbies was the thing that meant the most to her.
Donna will be remembered by her husband Matthew, her children Lily, Aidan, and Liam, her parents James and Anita (née O’Connor) Zazzarino, and her sister Christine Zazzarino. She will also be missed by her siblings. Along with many other members of her family and friends, she is survived by her cousins Gregory Zazzarino, Andrea O’Connor, and Gabrielle Squillante, as well as her uncles Dr. Dominic Zazzarino and Gerald O’Connor, both of whom are medical doctors.
