Donna Murdock McCagg ’58 (Nursing) age 84, died June 4, 2019 at her home in Honeoye Falls, NY after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born May 17, 1935 in Fowlerville, Michigan to William W. Murdock and Mary (Murdock) Clark and was one of six children.

Donna graduated from Hartland High School and Spring Arbor University in Michigan. She went on to study nursing at Roberts Wesleyan College and earned her Master’s degree from the University of Rochester, NY. This provided her with a long career at Genesee Hospital in Rochester, as well as Rochester General and F.F. Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua, NY. She was a Girl Scout Leader, a member of the Grand Squares Square Dancing Club, as well as her local walking club and the National Susan B. Anthony Museum and House. She also had many leadership roles in the Honeoye Falls United Methodist Church, where she was a member for over 45 years. She played in the bell choir and made it her job to make sure the church flower beds were always in bloom. Donna was the most generous person; always thinking of others and was loved by so many.

Donna is survived by her husband of 60 years, Raymond McCagg, children Marty McCagg of Quincy, MA and Mark (Tammie) McCagg of Charlotte, NC, granddaughter Hallie McCagg, sister Sharon (Howard) Fredenburg of Linden, MI, brother Jack (Dinah) Murdock of Anthony, FL and Ilva Hamzaj, their exchange student-turned-second granddaughter, of Albania. She was preceded in death by her parents, William Murdock and Mary (Murdock) Clark, as well as her brothers William and David, and sisters Wilma and Jill.
