She died unexpectedly on Oct. 1 at her home in Granada Hills. She was 54. “Donna was the party,” said stepdaughter Tracey Lampson. “She was down-to-earth. If you met her for the first time, you would think, what a wonderful, friendly person.” “She would exchange phone numbers with people she met on cruises or travels somewhere and people from all over the world would come and stay at her house just by that one meeting. If you were her friend, you were her friend forever.” Feinstein Salcido worked as a receptionist for several law firms on the Westside in Los Angeles.

She liked to give casual parties. I think she lived her life in a positive and fun way.” Feinstein Salcido enjoyed watching movies. Two of her favorites were “Pretty Woman” and “As Good as It Gets.” Her family will remember with a smile her love for dancing to “Hot, Hot, Hot” by Buster Poindexter and songs by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. She liked to read romance novels, take cruises to Mexico and the Caribbean and shop for bargains. Feinstein Salcido was amused by motorized talking animals and holiday-costumed figures. She had a substantial collection all over her house, and she was known to turn them on all at once. “She was loving, exciting and hysterical,” Lampson said. “She could be very silly. She was a fantastic mom and grandmother. I learned how to cook from her. I learned from her joyfulness and to be happy. She was an extraordinary person.” last_img
