Donna Wittlake left for her reunion with her late husband Ed Wittlake, great-granddaughter Maqualia Stacy and last best friend Bob Brown, on March 21, 2019 just 13 days after her 88th birthday.


Her love for adventure always amazed her family and friends. She lived in Alaska and raced dog sleds; raced stock cars and ran in a 5K Desert race in Parker, AZ at the age of 64. Her favorite job in life was proprietor of a Christmas Tree Farm in Libby, MT and selling those trees to Sears and Roebuck.


She is survived by her three daughters, Sherri Wittlake (Floyd Lovell), Tudy (Stacy) Wittlake and Darlene Jones (John); 6 grandchildren, 9 great- grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren. She will be missed by all of her friends and family, especially her best friend Shirley Johnsrud.


There will be a memorial service held in July.

RIP Gram! I am happy I got to spend about 10 days with you the week before you passed. We had good conversation and laughed. I am happy I got to grow up with you and Grandpa just down the street and could go visit whenever we wanted. I will forever remember your great cooking - mostly breakfast and the stories about your adventure filled life. Life is short and you have gone to soon for me, but I know you are now with Grandpa Wittlake, Grandpa Bob, Maquaila, your brothers and sisters and all your friends/family that became angels before you. I know you will always be with me and I have one more guardian angel watching over me.

I love you so much and already miss you more than I can put into words. I will see you again one day when it is my time. Until then I will LIVE and know that you are dancing, singing and partying with everyone.

Thank you to everyone who writes condolences to our family during this time. Grandma will be missed by everyone who knew her.

When I grow up I wanted to be just like Donna---so full of adventure, life, love, and laughter. Her & Bob's many adventures and joy were contagious. My deepest condolences to the family---she was one of a kind and her light shined brightly.

May you R.I.P. Donna. We haven't seen each other in many years but that's what sometimes happens with families. My condolences to her family and friends.

I came to know Donna briefly through Robert " Bob " Brown. Donna
was a wonderful lady. She brought so much completeness
to Bob and they were both wonderful people.
Bob and Donna rented a two bedroom from the organization that
I work for. I am sorry for your loss. In reading her obituary you
have lots of fun memories that you can cherish.
