Donna Mack, 83, of Coloma, passed away Oct. 23, 2023, at her home surrounded by her loving family.
Donna was born Nov. 12, 1939, in Caruthersville, MO, to the late James and Fannie Waller. She came to Michigan at age 12 when she met the love of her life, Duane Mack. They married in 1958 and enjoyed 58 years of marriage making countless lifelong memories until Duane's passing in 2016.
Donna had a bubbly personality with an unforgettable laugh and big smile that could light up a room. She was a true lady with timeless beauty. She was an exceptional cook, and always ensured her home was a welcoming place, and had food prepared to serve anyone who visited. Her beautiful and generous heart touched everyone she met.
She was also a very active person with many talents. She loved family get-togethers, cooking and baking together, decorating for every holiday, crafting, flowers, and relaxing on her front porch watching the birds and wildlife in her front yard. She meticulously weeded her flower beds, and her lawn was perfectly manicured. Her favorite outside activity was mowing the lawn on her riding lawn mower.
She dearly enjoyed shopping trips and participating in craft shows with her daughters and granddaughter, Brandi.
Donna had an unwavering love for her family. Being a wife, mom, and nana filled her with joy and happiness. Her passing leaves a hole in our hearts and lives, but she leaves us her legacy of wisdom, love, kindness, and sweet memories that will live on in all of us. We will always remember her warm hugs. We find solace in the knowledge that she is at peace and together in eternity with the love of her life. Rest in peace, our beautiful Angel.
Donna is survived by her loving children, Rick (Sandy) Mack, Dorinda (Kevin, her buddy) Leamer, Lori (Ron) Allred; grandkids, who she adored, Brandi (Brandon) Stroud, Derrick (Mia Genovese) Allred, Kyle (Devynn) Leamer, Kayla (Austin) Myers, Kim (Mike) Demski; and six great-grandchildren; she is also survived by her sister, Tawnia (Charles) Chantler; special niece, Janet Figel; special sister-in-law Betty Bailey; extended family, Tom and Linda Denbow; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins; and her beloved Maya Pup.
