She went on to get a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, Kentucky and her Masters in Nursing from Washington State University, Pullman, Washington.

Donna met her husband Donnie while working as a nurse at his father’s clinic in Lexington, Kentucky. She captured his heart the moment he laid eyes on her. After a brief period of dating, the two were married on August 22, 1981. They immediately moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Donnie attended Oral Roberts University. After his graduation, the young couple moved to Dallas Texas where they served on the ministry staff at Word of Faith for four years. In 1989, Donna and Donnie moved to Pullman, Washington where they served Calvary Christian Center for ­­25 years. In the fall of 2015, the Haynes’ returned to the Dallas area to establish the Word of Life Ministry Center.

Most recently she worked for Health Stream of Nashville, TN in Resuscitation and Simulation, as a Nurse Recruiter for the US Department of Veteran of Affairs in Dallas Texas, and as a Nurse Educator and Recruiter at Pullman Regional Hospital in Pullman, WA.

Married to the love of her life for over 37 years, she and Donnie raised three beautiful children. Donna was absolutely devoted to her husband and children. She was a wife who supported, respected and loved her husband unconditionally and a mother who always involved herself in every detail of her children’s lives, providing them with wings to fly as she cheered on their successes.

Donna Ann Haynes was a blessing to all who were acquainted with her. Her leadership and beautiful spirit changed those who were privileged to know her. A woman of strong faith, Donna walked out her belief in the goodness and love of her Lord Jesus with a real passion to serve her community.

Hers was a life blessed and beautifully lived.

Paster Donny my heart aches for you and your family. I pray for peace and miss Donna taught me so much about family and was a teacher from Christ. She saw the ANGELS. So sorry for your loss. I have found memories of you opening your arms to my family

I'm greatly saddened to hear this terrible news. I knew Donna from Versailles, KY, having been a friend and classmate thru high school. I remember her as a beautiful, caring and vibrant person who seemed to never know a stranger. It seems she led a very rich and fulfilling life and I know she will be greatly missed by family and friends everywhere.
My sincerest condolences and prayers during this difficult time.

Donna was such a pivotal person in my life. She and Donnie used to come into my place of work on Sundays when I was a waitress. I was a complete stranger and she showed me nothing but absolute kindness. She took a special interest in my life and guided me when I didn't know what direction I wanted to go in school. She helped me get job shadows, encouraged me to get my CNA license, and eventually helped me get a job in the hospital where she worked, where I was guided and further mentored into becoming a nurse. Today I am an RN in the Intensive Care Unit and she is the entire reason I have been able to succeed. For most people, a simple smile and kind words to their waitress is enough. For Donna, she changed my life. I am so heartbroken to hear she is no longer in this world, but I know that she impacted every person in such a profound way and we are so blessed to have had her here at all. I am incredibly sorry for the your loss. If I am able to move forward in life and carry even a sliver of the kind of woman Donna was, I would consider myself fortunate.
