Passed away on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at the age of 78. Donna grew up on a farm in the Elgarose, area and lived most of her life here in the Roseburg area. Donna graduated from Roseburg High School in 1953, and then attended Southern Oregon College where she earned her teaching degree. After college Donna taught for a couple years in the Portland area. It was while taking some summer classes at S.O.C. in 1956 that Donna met the love of her life, Leonard
Odell Warren. He was “love stricken” when he saw her. They got married July 5th, 1958. Leonard and Donna were truly best friends. In 2008, after 50 years of a great marriage, Leonard preceded her in death. Donna was a true example of a woman characterized in Proverbs 31 and a treasure to Leonard, to her children, and her grandchildren.
Donna and Leonard loved to travel around the United States camping. Together they took many great trips during their life time. They also loved to camp all over Oregon with family and with friends. When asked what her “hobbies” were, Donna would say that it was spending time with her family, being involved in and a part of her families interest, whatever that might be. She also liked tending to her flowers, especially the roses. Donna also took pleasure in dressing up and looking her very best, even if she was going to a ball game.
Donna attended Wellspring Bible Fellowship (formally F.C.B.C) for the past 35 years. She enjoyed being involved with numerous activities at the church and taking advantage of opportunities to volunteer her time. Her relationship with her Lord Jesus Christ was important to her and she treasured her church family.
Donna taught the second and third grad for most of her life, with the majority of her career teaching at Douglas County Christian School in Roseburg.
Donna is survived by her brother, Donald Sundberg; her children: Pam Gray and her husband Dave; Randy Warren and his wife Janet; and Lynnette Harmen; 12 “loving” grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her cousins Patty and Marlene; as well as many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at Wellspring Bible Fellowship in Roseburg on Saturday, August 24th at 2 p.m. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Wellspring Bible Fellowship’s Deacons fund or Children’s ministry.
