Donna Lee (Palmieri) Casey, 72 of Westerly, Rhode Island passed peacefully on December 17, 2020 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. She was the wife of William Casey who predeceased her in 2009. Donna is survived by her daughter, Cheryl.

Donna was born and raised in Yonkers, New York. She was the daughter of the late Joseph and Katherine Palmieri. She is preceded in death by her brother Joseph Palmieri and sisters Rosemarie Palmieri and Olga Yuhas. She is survived by her sisters; Connie Marchi of Mechanicsburg, PA, Katherine Goodwin and Diane Partenza (her twin sister) of Westerly, RI and Margaret Pantezzi of Kalama, WA. She will be dearly missed by many nieces and nephews.

Donna and Billy made their homes in Mamaroneck, NY, followed by Ridgefield, CT and eventually Westerly, RI; in each they made lasting friendships. Donna and her husband were members of the Westerly Yacht Club in RI. There she enjoyed boating, playing cards and shuffle board with friends and vacationing on Block Island.

Donna was an accomplished artist. Her artwork consists of pen and ink, watercolor, oil paintings, charcoals, and stained glass. Her artistry was not just on paper but also in her home, through her beautiful home decor and love for gardening. She worked in many establishments throughout her professional career in customer service roles where her attention to detail, care for others and an engaging and sharp wit, always won over her coworkers and customers. Donna was a devoted wife, caring mother and sister. She was loved and admired by all.

Funeral services are private. Gaffney-Dolan Funeral Home, 59 Spruce St., Westerly is in care of the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Frank Olean Center, 93 Airport Road, Westerly, RI 02891, where Donna’s daughter, Cheryl attends. For online condolences please visit

Donna was a beautiful person inside & out. I am happy I had the opportunity to know & love her for almost 20 years. God has definitely gained an Angel with Donna. Her love of Billy was undeniable, and now, they are once again together for eternity. It is our pleasure to donate to the Olean Center in her memory knowing this facility has been a second home to their daughter, Cheryl. RIP my friend. God Bless.
