Donna Mae Harper, born Jan. 15, 1955, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Dec. 22, 2021. She was born to Orvil and Luella Jolley and raised in Holbrook, AZ. She lived her life serving her family, friends and the youth and women of her LDS church group. She always had an excuse to go shopping or go to lunch with friends or family, and she never let a cruise ship leave the dock without her. She loved to give to others and was a wonderful seamstress. The quilts she made her children and grandchildren will be cherished. They were made with such love and detail. Her and her loving husband, Derwin, spent the last few years of her life traveling together on the road and abroad spending special time together with family and friends. Donna loved to laugh and left a lasting impression on countless people who will cherish their memories with her. Left to carry on her traditions, are her husband Derwin Harper, her children Lisa (Paul) Miller, Ryan (Melissa) Harper, Jami (Mark) Baker, Kara (Ryan) Gardner, and Cody (Rachel) Harper. Her legacy will be continued through her 23 grandchildren, her greatest treasures. Donna Mae will be truly missed.
