Donna Gentry leaves a long list of accomplishments, not only in the Right to Life Movement and the Pregnancy Care Center, but also in other community organizations. On January 28, 2011, a bench monument was placed on the Chamber of Commerce Plaza, which is the site where the Pregnancy Care Center was founded in January of 1999. This bench would also honor Donna Gentry, who was the founder of the Pregnancy Care Center and honor the many lives she has been able to touch; the many people she has helped and for her many accomplishments in the pro life movement. The work of the Pregnancy Care Center would not have been possible without the dedication of Donna Gentry to see it through.

Every so often you come across an individual who has made such a huge impact on their community and this has been evident by Donna Gentry’s passing. The impact by Donna Gentry was perceptible by the many people who paid their respects and to the large crowd who attended her funeral. Donna’s granddaughter, Brianne Rainey Davidson said it best as she ended her remarks at the funeral, “We remember her as a great woman but she wasn’t, she was a simple woman that did great things through Jesus."
