When that company dissolved in the early 1980’s she was hired to fill the vacated position of Chief Deputy Clerk in the Adams County Courthouse.

Over the next three decades Parker saw considerable changes in the courthouse facilities and personnel. “The biggest change,” she said, “was in April 1993 when we began using computers.”

Her father, Wendell Parker, served as Adams County’s Clerk of Courts from 1968-1992.

Donna plans to spend her retirement doing what she loves, sewing and baking. She creates American Girl doll clothing and aprons which she displays and sells at local festivals.

Her work can be seen at the Blue Creek Caraway Festival and the Wheat Ridge Old Thyme Herb Festival in October . She also sells her work at four Cincinnati festivals.

Donna is the mother of two daughters: Lisa Lewis of West Union and Monica Huffman of Peebles. She also has three grandchildren who she is looking forward to spending time with in her retirement.
