Carlin's collected treasures


GROVES — She is a breast cancer survivor and expresses that if something is questionable to have it checked again.

"Start mammograms early so they have a good reading," she said.

While on the medicines for cancer, she had a side effect of a stroke. "I didn't feel anything different but I was slurring my words and seeing double," she said. "Now, I'm a little unbalanced."

Donna and Ronnie go dancing at Larry's French Market when they can.

She is a member of First Baptist Church in Groves and attends Joy of Living Bible Study.

"It's ladies from other churches and denominations that attend," she said.

Carlin goes walking everyday and goes to Curves as much as possible. She is also a member at Weight Watchers. "It's not a diet. It's a way of living. It's so simple and you can eat more than you think you can," she said.

She has two daughters and three grandchildren. "Two of my grandchildren attend Lamar University and the other goes to Legacy Christian Academy in Beaumont."
