Here's a brief introduction to Donnamira:

Donnamira is the middle sister of the Took’s three remarkable daughters. Belladonna, four years older, was always the responsible one, attempting to be sensible and to keep her younger sisters out of mischief. Mirabella, four years younger, was everyone’s darling, the prettiest one of them, with a sunny nature. Donna was never noticed quite as much as her sisters, but she didn’t mind; that gave her the freedom to get by with murder – only figuratively speaking, of course. She would persuade Mira to join her in daring escapades, then Bella would have to come to help them get out of trouble, usually getting into it herself.

Now that all three are grown up and married, with children, they have become more respectable, apparently. However, Donnamira is still known for her eccentric ideas, though few Hobbits of the Shire have heard of her occasional disappearances, since the family hushes them up. Her husband Hugo Boffin is much too easy-going to be upset and regards her with slightly detached amusement. Her children adore her, though they are often bewildered by her quirkiness.

The sisters have mellowed somewhat with age, but they still have a tendency to bicker with each other, at least until someone else interferes. Then they hold together and defend each other - to their last breath, if need be.

At the time this story takes place, Donnamira is 64 years old.
