After The Waitresses broke up, Donahue generally kept a low profile, though she is credited on Alice Cooper's Zipper Catches Skin with "vocals and sarcasm." She later worked for ABC in the Political Unit and then at MCA in the A&R department.
On December 9, 1996, Donahue, who had been a heavy smoker most of her adult life, died of lung cancer at the age of 40. A native of Cleveland, Donahue was interred in the Holy Cross Cemetery, in nearby Brook Park.
