Donna Lee Hadley passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on Wednesday, April 10, 2013. Donna was the daughter of Leslie and Helen Robinson and grew up in Long Beach, CA. She married the love of her life, Glen Howard Hadley, on December 13, 1947, who preceded her in death as did her daughter Christeen Hadley Egnew.
In addition to being a devoted mother, grandmother and skilled homemaker, she helped care for her daughter Christeen during her long illness until her death. She then took it upon herself to help raise, love and nurture Christeen’s 4 children. Donna had many talents, playing the piano, cooking, and was a very skilled seamstress/quilt maker. Her quilts are a family treasure.
As a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she will be remembered as a loving, giving person with a wonderful sense of humor and clever wit. She always put her family first. Our mother leaves us with memories of a lifetime filled with fun.
Donna is survived by her sons Glen Hadley (Linda), Gary Hadley (Su); daughter Lesley Dawn Barnes (Dave); fourteen grandchildren and 13 1/2 great-grandchildren.
Services for Donna will be held in Bountiful, Utah on Saturday, April 20, 2013.
