Donna Jean Oswald was born September 10, 1933 to Henry and Alma Bachman in Isabel, South Dakota and passed away October 11, 2021 after a very short battle with cancer.
Donna was born on her father's birthday, something she was proud to say. She was the first of three girls with Dorothy and Joyce to follow.
She is now Sister.
Donna lived most of her life in Galt, CA. She became a Wife when she wed her childhood neighbor Elroy Oswald in 1958.
Together they raised two children, Terri Thomas and Ronald Oswald.
She became Mother.
Donna became Grammie with five grandchildren Brooke, Erika, Phillip, Olivia and Summer and blessed with four great grandchildren, Benjamin Jr., Jackson, Ryder and Laynne.
Donna loved her family. Her focus and purpose was loving and caring for them. She grew beautiful daffodils and made the best pickles!
Donna never lost her smile and was ready to meet the Lord.
She will be missed every minute and will never be forgotten.
Donna is survived by her children Terri and Jerry Thomas and Ronald and Triffin Oswald; her grandchildren Brooke and Ben Duncan, Erika Oswald, Phillip Owens, Olivia and Tyler Wilson and Summer Owens; and great grandchildren Benjamin Jr. and Jackson Duncan, Ryder and Laynne Wilson; her sisters Dorothy Merkins and Joyce and Gary White.
