Emergency crews battled to save the mum in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorks, for an hour before she was taken to hospital.
Sadly Donna was declared clinically brain dead and her life support machine was switched off the next day.
Her four children – aged one, five, 12 and 14 – are now being looked after by their dad.
In a double tragedy, Donna’s son Josh passed away when he was just three years old.

Her devastated cousin Kealy Smith said: “She was literally just walking her daughter to school and said she got a pain in her head and she ending up collapsing, an ambulance was rung and they were working on her for about an hour at the side of the road.
“It was very unexpected, she was just taking her daughter to school. She was talking to my uncle the night before.
“I think everyone was just in shock. How can you go from taking your daughter to school to being gone?”
Donna’s heartbroken family have now launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for her funeral.
