Donna Rae was born February 12, 1943 in Williamsport, one of six children of the late William and Margaret (Fiester) Stover. She was a 1961 graduate of Williamsport Area High School. On April 28, 1962, Donna married Lee Ward in Williamsport. They were blessed with eight children and shared 54 years together. Times shared with her children and grandkids were most important to Donna and she was the best supporter of their many sports and activities.
Donna was raised in an apartment in Williamsport, but became a farmer's wife and homemaker. While raising her family she helped with barn chores, made the best applesauce, apple pie, jelly and chocolate chip cookies. When the grandkids came she also took up the duties of babysitting and transporting them to whereever they needed to be.
She found time to visit her friends and was always there when called upon.
She was predeceased by two sisters, Jean Howard and Alice Burkholder.
In keeping with Donna’s wishes, services and burial will be held privately.
