Donna was a devoted wife and homemaker, spending countless hours making their house a home and gathering spot for all the neighborhood kids. She was a natural with children — loved animals and rescuing those who needed help — and was drawn to the beauty and peacefulness of the outdoors. She was a kind and gentle person all around.

Donna fought long and hard during her illness, all the while it still came easy to lend her smile and gentle love to the end.

“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

Donna is survived by her husband Richard “Tex” Mclemore, of Fall City; son Robert, of Fall City; son Matt (wife Kim), of North Carolina; daughter Becky (husband Frank), of LaConner. She will also be missed by 12 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; two brothers: Bob Fay, of Oroville, and Jerry Fay (wife Lois), of Spokane; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A service will be at 2:30 p.m. May 18 at Valley Christian Assembly Church, 32725 S.E. 42nd St., Fall City.

Friends are invited to view the full obituary, photos, service details and sign the family’s online guestbook at
