Donna M. Biggerstaff, 87, passed away peacefully at home on October 24, 2017. Donna was born December 12, 1929 to Harold and Mary Salstrom on a small farm in Bigelow, MN. Preceded in death by her parents, husband Bolton 'Don' Biggerstaff, brother Norman Salstrom. Survived by son Duane (Kay) Biggerstaff, daughter Debra Henigsman, grandchildren Taffi Biggerstaff and Jason (Brenda) Biggerstaff, great grandchildren Emberly Biggerstaff and Lathen Biggerstaff, brother Harold 'Corky' (Donna) Salstrom, and numerous nieces and nephews. Donna grew up in southern Minnesota, moved to Colorado, fell in love, married and raised her family in Pueblo. After a lifetime career with Mountain Bell Telephone Company (and a brief career as 'Auto Dine' owner, some may remember the curbside hamburgers) she became involved with various volunteer and social groups: Parkview Blue Ladies, Mountain Bell Auxiliary, Red Hats and Newcomers Club. She loved social lunches, playing cards and dominos with her kind and compassionate friends. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff and friends at Primrose Retirement Community for the love they shared with Donna. Memorial service, 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel. Full obituary available at It was October 24th.. the kingdom of heaven welcomed in.. An angel who walked this very earth.. Because the Lord needed her back with him. She was a beautiful woman in appearance.. And inside her beauty shined so bright.. The Lord had kept her so close to him.. That you could almost see the light.. She was a strong willed soul.. And heaven could not wait .. Her spirit was to good for earth .. And her heart was just as great.. Donna Biggerstaff was a woman.. Who lived a wonderful life.. She was a loving mother to her children... And the most devoted wife. Donna Loved her daughter Debbie... And just as much her son Duane... She loved their spouses as her own.... And her grandchildren just the same.... Her nails were always fancy... And her hair was done just so... She was the loveliest of people ... As each of us did know... She had some earthly obstacles With trying burdens for her to carry.. she overcame each one.. While knocking down the adversary .. Donna missed her husband very much .. As Don made good to go before... So he could hold her hand to heaven... And bring her safely through the door... We sit here sadly mourning ... And missing Donnas smiling face. Feeling bad that this was her life's end.. But that's just not the case... Donna's life has just begun.. And if you could hear her voice.. She would tell you she's alive and well.. And would want us to rejoice. 'You may not be able to see me.. But trust we're not apart.. I'm walking with you always... And living in your heart.' 'Please don't cry for me.. I'm on a new endeavor. My body may have died... But my soul will live forever...' My journey has all but started And everything's brand new 'time' is our only separation Until I'm back with you. ' ~ Brandy Schneider

  1. I have known Donna, one sweet lady, for many years. What a lovely and kind person. I never heard her say anything unkind. Our monthly Mexican Train Dominos group will miss her. I played cards with Donna. She was a formidable player, I so enjoyed having her as a partner. I’m sure going to miss her. We played dominos at the Primrose on the 18th. After the game I gave her a hug and we told each other “I love you”. Little did I know she would slip into eternity only days later. Good bye Donna, love you.

  2. I worked with Donna at Mountain Bell, she was a beautiful lady and a dear friend. I had talked with her several times over the past few years. I am so sorry that I didn’t know she was failing as I would have loved to see her.

  3. Donna, I shall miss stopping by your house and visiting with you. We had some fun times talking about life and things in general. Sadly missing such a dear, kind neighbour.
