Memories Timeline


  1. Love my Aunt Dona!!! She was so good to me! I’m so grateful for her prayers and the little ways she demonstrated that she noticed me. I’m sure my Dad was there when she entered into glory! Makes me happy and sad! May the circle be unbroken…amen!

  2. Renee, Robin and Brad, I am very sorry for your loss and wishing you peace and comfort during this tough time. Dona always sent the most lovely cards (I think I have more happy anniversary cards from her than I do Todd, haha), and they always had owls (my favorite) on them. Not sure how she managed to find so many owl cards or how she didn’t forget. She was one of a kind!

  3. Brad, Robin and Renee,
    My heart goes out to all of you and your families. I always remind myself that our parents are at peace and no longer in pain. Dona was a very special lady. My prayers and thoughts are with you all❣️

  4. Dearest Brad, Robin, Renee and Lane,
    I’m so sorry on the loss of your mom. She was a wonderful woman of God. I miss your dad too. They both made my time at Calvary very special. I remember lots of retreats at WestCliff. Praying for you guys. I know there’s changes to come and praying for God’s guidance. Sending lots of love your way. ♥️ 🙏 ♥️

  5. This wonderful woman, was my neighbor for over 50 years. She was so much more than just a neighbor, she was a wonderful friend, other mom. Craft person and a wonderful garage sale lady. Our neighborhood had the best garage sales. I know how much I will miss her, so I know how much her family will miss her. May she rest in peace. May God look over her children and grandchildren.
    Especially Brad…

  6. Brad, Robin, & Renee, I’m so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. ❤️🙏

  7. I remember Dona pretty well as my neighbor and part of my friends, the Richeson, family. What a sweet lady, and now seeing where life took here in her church work, it sounds like she was such a light in the world. Her brother Ray and I were best buds for a number of years (I only learned now that Ray has passed, bless his soul), but I remember Paul and Dona coming over regularly to her parents. She rests in the arms of the Lord. My condolences to the family. I will not be able to be at the service as I am visiting my sister in Florida.

  8. Robin, Lane and family,
    I know you will miss this wonderful lady so much. What a blessing to have Christian parents who change the lives of those around them for God’s glory, and raised us in loving homes. We are comforted in knowing we will see them again because of their faith. I will be praying for you during this difficult time. Much love, Kim Carere
