We got to know Donna and James when we held a fundraiser for the family at St. Paul Lutheran Church. It has been an honor to know her. She always had a smile for others.

Donna
You were the sun when it was raining
You were the twinkle in everyone's eyes
You had the strength of 1000 warriors, and
a smile that lit an evening sky.
Your laugh left us joyful, your courage left us hopeful. Your eyes brought us beauty in the way you looked at life.
Those who got to know you was left a memory upon their hearts.
If ever there were a goddess you would be standing in their light.
Although you have left us, your memories will live in each and every one of us who have loved you for so long.

My precious Dew Drop, my first born and only daughter, there are no words that could ever express the depth of pain in my heart that I feel from loosing you from my life. Times we laughed together, cried together & fought for each other. I will never stop loving you, I will never stop missing your laughter, your hugs, and you calling me “Mommakeeta”....Until I see you again my baby girl...
I love you always, Mom

From the first time james. Brought you out to the farm. On that Christmas night, so long ago. I knew you was the one for my little brother. In no time at all. You fit right in. Gave as good as you ever got. In an argument. Gave more than you ever took. From the blizzard to the daily struggles of two young couples trying to make it. The drive in. Trip when everyone was envious of dogs off the grill. When we could only afford 5 dollar car load. And who could forget. Our hit song California dreaming. Once we found out. You and shari had to sing lead. With me on backup vocals. We were pretty good. I miss you sis. So many memories. And so little time. For now you belong too the angels! Love your big monkey......

I got to know Donna better the last 2yrs by doing her hair. She was more than a customer/ she was my friend. Donna always had a smile on her face. She was such a caring, loving woman. I will miss her deeply. Prayers go out to James and his family. 💞❤💞🙏🙏🙏.
