Donna was born in Raymond to Curtis and Iona West on May 9, 1924. Mom's greatest joy was in the love and association she had with a large extended family. All her grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephew, nieces, neighbors and friends were welcome any time in her heart and home, where she spent countless hours serving and making each one feel loved and special.
She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and gave many hours of service through out her long lifetime. Donna and Lloyd loved the temple and spent many hours serving in many different temples of the world.
She will be remembered for her feisty personality, zest for life, joy of family and love of the gospel. Her lectures on attitude, hand stitched quilts and dishtowels, and her epic breakfasts will be greatly missed.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Donna’s name may be made directly to a charity of one's personal choice.
