Donna was raised in

Bottineau County and gra-

duated from Bottineau

High School. She was

proud to raise her four

daughters and was a

long-time resident of Rug-

by. She had a love for

gardening, reading and

was an avid baker that al-

ways had something

made, just in case. She

loved walking and walked

everywhere. Her

daughter, Tena would

stop in after supper and

they would go for their

evening walks. She loved

her cats, had many in her

lifetime and would always

make sure there was extra

food on hand to feed the

neighborhood cats. Her

family and friends were

important to her and she

did not miss or forget a

birthday. She loved to

write letters and sent

many cards, which her

family and friends always

enjoyed and that will be

dearly missed. Donna al-

ways had a hug waiting

for you and a gentle touch

of her hand on your

cheek. She was very de-

voted in her faith and it

carried her through her

life-she is one of the

strongest women you will

ever know. She will be

greatly missed by all her

family and friends, near

and far, especially her

closed dear friend, Mitzy

Teske of Bottineau.

la (Craig) White and their
