Donna Marie was born August 1, 1937 to Leonard J. and Bernita (nee: Cook) Koenigsknecht in Pewamo, MI. She joined the Racine Dominicans and professed her first vows in 1957 and her final vows in 1963.

Sister Donna Marie spent many years in service to others in Domestic Service including baking, cooking, maintenance and working in the laundry. She was an excellent knitter. Each year she made Siena Center a festive place with her Christmas decorating. The grounds around Siena Center benefited from her green thumb.
