Philanthropist Inez Donley will be remembered for commitment to KidsPeace

To the Editor:

Some people make such an impact on their communities that their work will live on long after they are gone.

Such is the case with Inez Donley, who died Jan. 27 at the age of 97, after dedicating nearly 70 years to volunteer work in the Lehigh Valley.

Inez and husband, Edward Donley, were major supporters of KidsPeace, donating more than $1.47 million to our organization to help children and teenagers with behavioral and mental health challenges.
