Donna met R.C. Art Bonds in 1981 They had a wonderful time together and shared many adventures from going to Alaska every year for well over 20 years to their love of gardening. Donna got 7 more children of Art's as step- children and many more grandchildren.
Donna lived a very well lived life. She laughed, she cried, and she put herself back together again when broken. Like a clock winding down she was just so tired and worn out. Donna lived the full circle of life and will be missed. She was sassy and spicy and only became more so in her later years.
Donna was an artist from her painting to her floral designs. She loved to bake and can and she was an absolute amazing cook. She has hundreds of fair ribbons and was quite the competitor. Donna's Pie's where especially her gift. Her lemon meringue made the angels sing.
She took so much pride in her family and extended family. Once you were hers you always would be. She had many people that called her grandma. She was always the loudest in the stands at Football games and wrestling matches. Sometimes embarrassing her kids in the process. But her love of her children was all consuming and deep down they appreciated it. Donna was a great Mother and there was always an adventure to be had.
Donna was preceded in death by her husband Art, her granddaughter she adored Amy and very loved brothers and sisters.
