    We are very sorry to hear of the passing of LaDonna. She grew up with my mother, Marion Benner in Arrowwood and they were very close friends for many years. Your Mom sewed the curtains for my mother’s kitchen window & back door. They are there today and are a good reminder of what a great friend LaDonna was to our Mom. LaDonna would call on occasion to see how our Mom was doing, she had a very kind and caring heart.

    May you cherish many family memories of such a sweet lady. We wish your family peace and healing during this time of sorrow. May you celebrate a life well lived.

    Kathleen Benner

    Uncle Dan, Brian, Grant and families,
    So sorry to hear about Auntie Donna. She was so feisty when I saw her a couple years back, but I know she was dealing with so much pain. She will be missed terribly, but I’m very thankful that she is rejoicing with Jesus in Heaven, and probably having coffee every morning with Auntie Geneva, Grandma, Grandpa, John,…and some Koolaid with Warren. Our thoughts and prayers have been with you, and I wish we could have been there with you yesterday for her service. Love to all!

    I also just talked to Mom (Medora), and she said that she had hoped that she and Dad(Junior) could have been there, but it just wasn’t possible. Dad seemed to understand, and knows that he will see her and Geneva again, as well as those who have gone before. Their prayers are with you!
