Donaldeen "GG" Marie Hassell Brei, age 92, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 3, 2021 at her daughter's home in Vienna, OH. She was born in Sharon, PA on October 28, 1928 to Albert and Dorothy (Ritenour) Hassell.

She is survived by her daughter, Donna Bluedorn of Vienna, OH; daughter-in-law, Sandy Brei of New Castle, PA; grandchildren, Kelli Mangino of Avon Lake, OH, Kasey (Jason) McCollum of Vienna, OH, and Kortni (Ryan) Kubicina of Kansas City, MO; great-grandchildren, Caleb, Libby, Melody, Justice, Rachel, Ari, Chase, Jordan Kubicina, and Kaylen McCollum; siblings, Edward Hassell and Jonell Hassell.

In addition to her parents, GG was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse Brei; longtime partner, Donald Siekkenen; son, Roy Brei; siblings, Bobbie Hassell, Harold Hassell and Joan Morrison.

GG worked at Riverside as a cake decorator, a dispatcher at Goldstein’s furniture, and at a cable company. She enjoyed doing many things, including cake decorating, reading, gardening, puzzles, crocheting, sewing, listening to country music, and spending time with her puppies (pippers). She was known for her witty sense of humor and loved flirting with all of the guys.

GG's family is grateful to all of the special caregivers during this difficult time, especially, Sarah Marino, Crystal Talkington and also everyone from Traditions Hospice for their wonderful service and TLC they provided.

The family requests any memorial donations be made in Donaldeen Brei’s name to Tradition Hospice Care Center, 4531 Belmont Ave. Unit 7, Youngstown, OH 44505.
