1943 – 2014
Centerfield, Utah – Our kind and beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, neighbor and friend Donna Ray Andreason Manwill age 71, returned home to her Heavenly Father, early Saturday morning, October 25, 2014 at her home in Centerfield.
She was born September, 10 1943 in Salina, Utah, a daughter of Ray Durndal and Verna Wyroa Larson Andreason. She graduated from North Sevier High School Class of 1961. She married Bernell Hal Manwill, May 27, 1961 in Salina.
Donna was a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She enjoyed doing family history work. She liked making crafts of all sorts including sewing and quilting. She loved spending time with her husband Bernell, whether at their lake property camping, or at a home they owned for many years in St. George. However her number one pastime was serving her beloved family, and friends. Donna never forgot a birthday, or a special event in the life of one of her loved ones. She made quilts for her grandchildren when they were born, and when they graduated. She was always prepared for holidays with expressions of love, whether in the form of a card, or a gift for those she cared about. She loved to cook, and made sure that no one went away hungry. She encouraged and assisted her children and grandchildren in achieving their desires. If there was a event important to one of her family, she was there without fail. She was a tender and loving person who thought of others before herself even in recent times when her health was poor.
Donna fought a good fight to live and lived well despite her illness. She left a loving family and friends who will always remember her courage and tenacity in the face of heartbreak, but will also remember the good times – of which there were many.
