if this a recent event contact the local newpaper. if you get no help then try the library. if you have the dates and you get a friendly worker they may access the obit and mail it to you.

i'm not sure if this is what you had in mind but it may be a start.

DONA, DONATELLI, DONATI: From the first name Donato, derived from the Latin adjective "donatus" meaning given by God

DONATIELLO: From the first name Donato; Neaples area

DONATO: From the first name Donato, derived from the Latin adjective "donatus" meaning given by God

DONNA: From the word "donna", derived from the Latin "domina" = lady. Sometimes used also as a noble title

good luck, juan-------------
