Lonna Leah DeSantis, 56, of Cumberland, WI passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family, on May 10, 2023. She was born February 3, 1967 in Cumberland, WI to John  and Jeanne (Pierson) DeSantis.

Lonna grew up in the Cumberland area and graduated from Cumberland High School in 1985. Lonna held various positions throughout her career. She worked at Quanex for over 30 years, The Hammer (Skiddies) for almost a decade, and Kwik Trip. Through these positions, she gained life-long friendships. While these jobs kept Lonna busy, her greatest role in life was being a mom and grandma. Lonna filled her kids' summers with camping, tubing down the Namekagon River, and eating a hot pepper sandwich at the Rutabaga Festival every August. She was so proud watching her children, Nicole and Shane, become parents themselves. Lonna loved watching her grandchildren, Caleb, Carly, and Lydia grow—her favorite “grandma duty” was giving them snuggles!
