Donna Marie Perreault, 71, of Haverhill, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 28,at Fairhaven Nursing Home, Lowell.

She is survived by her son, Brian Ramsdell and wife Cassandra; granddaughter, Karly; sister, Eleanor Raymond; sister-in-law, Barbara Perreault, all of Haverhill, along with several nieces and nephews, extended family and dear friends.
