Donna Ann Stahl-Crane


Donna Ann Stahl-Crane, 63, passed away peacefully on November 4, 2023 with family by her side. Donna was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend who will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Donna was born on May 24, 1960 in Staten Island, New York. While Donna moved to Florida in her adolescent years, she always carried that fiery New Yorker spirit.  Donna is daughter of Nancie and John Stahl, the second of four children. Donna’s survivng sibilings are Debra Grant, Dana Gray, and John Stahl. 

Donna grew up in Pinellas County. She graduated from Northeast High School, and then attended St Petersburg Junior college where she obtained her Associates Degree. She was a homemaker and raised three children. Donna spent years taking her children to numerous sports activities, always getting involved and being a team mom.  The neighborhood kids always spent time with her and they too grew to see her as a mom figure.  Donna was true giving spirit that burnt out way to soon.

Donna is survived by her husband John Crane, her two daughters, Erica Crane and Jessica Esposito, and her son Jeremy Crane.  Donna has 8 grandchildren. John and Donna meet at the young age of 13.  They spent 50 years together building this life and legacy that will be carried on through her children and grandchildren.  50 years together is an amazing accomplishment but as long as that seems it is never quite enough. 

The family extends their gratitude to all those who have shown support and sympathy during this difficult time. Donna will be missed and even though she is not here with us in body, she will always be in our hearts.  Until we meet again…..

There will be a service held at Holy Family Catholic Church on November 18, 2023 @ 10am. 200 78th Ave NE, St. Petersburg Fl 33702. Following this there will be a celebration of life details to be given later. All who knew Donna are welcome to attend and share their memories.

Donations or flowers can be delivered to John Crane at 10632 Blossom lake drive Seminole Fl 33772
