After a courageous 3-year battle with breast cancer, Dr. Donna J. Opatrny passed away in her home on February 12, 2018. She was surrounded by family and friends who cared for her during her greatest time of need. The family is grateful to Donna’s friends and colleagues who came to call, especially nurse Lynn from CTCA and dear friends Mary, Karen, and Nancy who worked tirelessly to assist Donna during her final days.


Donna graduated from MacCormac College and earned her doctorate in chiropractic from National College of Chiropractic. In addition to maintaining a practice in Fox River Grove, Dr. Opatrny obtained a teaching certificate from Trinity International University and served as a substitute teacher and tutor in elementary school district 26 and high school district 155.


Donna was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Mary Opatrny (nee Vraney). She is survived by her 8 siblings: Georgia Ballard (Dewey), Christine Kelecius (Tom), Mary Ruys (Hans), Stephanie Smith (Tom), Joseph (Sharon), Paula Close (Jon), Elizabeth Gentile (Mike), and Matthew (Cheri). Donna was a beloved aunt and a dear friend to many. Her sense of humor and generous spirit will be missed.


The funeral mass will be Saturday, February 24, at 12:30 p.m. at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Cary, IL. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Children’s Home and Aid in Chicago, Illinois: www.childrenshomeandaid.org or Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) in Zion, Illinois: www.cancercenter.com.
