Donna L. Nielson Garcia, age 66, of 15 Lincoln St. Pittsfield, died Friday evening at Mount Greylock Extended Care facility in Pittsfield. She was born March 14 1956 in the Bronx, N.Y., the daughter of the late William and Joan Nielson. She attended Walton High School in the Bronx and after moving to Pittsfield in 1990, she earned her GED.
Primarily a homemaker, she was known to all as “Mom” and encouraged all who needed a meal and some friendship to share her home. As you would expect, she not only provided shelter and a meal, she served as the caretaker for many including her own family and grandchildren, who meant everything to her.
She is survived by her daughters, Joan M. Nielson and Khrystyna M. Nielson, both of Pittsfield. Her two brothers, William Nielson and Scott Nielson, her two sisters, Janine McHugh and Barbara Nielson. As well as her grandson, Anthony M. Intelisano and his wife, Shelby Trapp, granddaughter, Trinity Knowelle Nielson, and her niece and goddaughter, Theresa Gibson.
She was predeceased by her husband, Armondo Garcia, "Big Mondy" and her son Mondy J. Garcia. She passed away on her sons birthday, who was taken from their family in 1998.
