|RP woman dies in solo auto crash
A Rohnert Park woman was killed on June 12, 2012 in a solo car crash on the eastern edge of Petaluma.
The woman, 47-year-old Donna McMorrow, was driving on the right-hand side of Old Adobe Road where she drifted off the side of the road into a field. Her vehicle overturned multiple times before she was ejected.
McMorrow, according to a California Highway Patrol report, was traveling northbound on Adobe Road, south of East Washington Avenue in Petaluma, at a normal rate of speed; the posted speed limit in the road is 50 mph. The accident occurred around 7:15 p.m., according to the CHP.
A celebration of McMorrow’s life has been scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 23, at Penngrove Community Church.
McMorrow was born in Chelmsford, Mass., to Charles and Georgia McMorrow. She attended La Fiesta Junior High, Ursuline High School in Santa Rosa, and graduated from SRJC in 1988.
For the past 16 years, she was employed as an accounting assistant at Marin County Health and Human Services.
Her interests included scrap-booking, card making, reading and hosting home parties where she was known as the "Party Queen." As the accounting chair, she supported "Relay for Life" annual events in Rohnert Park. She was a cat lover with a magnetic smile. She is survived by her mother, Georgia Maher, step-father, Rich Maher, and brother Michael McMorrow (Louise) all of Rohnert Park, and sister, Diane Sword (Clifford) of Chico. Her father, Charles McMorrow, predeceased her in 1989. She leaves behind an extended family, many friends, and her two special cats, Cassie and Chandon.
