Donna Marie Gorham

June 26, 1951 ~ May 12, 2020 (age 68)


Donna Marie Gorham, 68, of Portland, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 after a long

illness.  Born in Portland on June 26, 1951, she was a daughter of Donald and Marie Diluna Wilson.

Donna attended Cape Elizabeth schools.  Throughout her adult life, she worked in many customer

service positions, most notably at Shaw’s where she was a cashier for nearly two decades.  She also

spent many years working as a cook at The Cape Elizabeth Home, where her kindness and compassion

were shared with each of the residents she knew there. 

Although she did not attend any particular church at the time of her death, Donna had a uniquely strong

faith in God which she shared with those she loved. 

She is predeceased by her father Donald Wilson and her brother Michael Wilson. 

Donna is survived by her adoring children, daughter Jessica E. Gorham and son Thomas R. Gorham and

Thomas’s family, his wife Joan, and children Isabella, Emily and Matthew, her mother Marie B.

Wilson and her brother, Christopher Wilson and sisters, Rene McCallum and Janis Santorella, and their

families, a cousin Linda Pilken, including many beloved nieces and nephews.  Her cat Honeybun will miss her immensely. 

Donations can be made to Food for the Poor, Donna’s favorite charity. 

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
