Dona worked at Community Action for a few years and then at the Kamiah Clinic until June 2015.

She was a devout member of Freedom Bible Church and taught Sunday School.

Dona was preceded in death by her parents, two daughters, Colleen and Kathy and two brothers Gary and Brian.

She is survived by her husband Robert, a daughter Dawn Jean (Ron) Ruszcyk, a son Patrick Thurlby, two sisters Debra Eckhardt and Valerie Shankard, sister-in-law Renee Youngblood, four step-children and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
