Donna’s life partner and husband, Clarence Emil Petersen “Click” preceded her in death this past Feb. In life, they did everything together: golf, fishing, ‘The Cabin’, bowling, hunting, and Bingo.

Donna will be greatly missed. We love you Mom, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother.
