Donna was born March 4, 1936 to the late Paul and Leora (Steward) Fletcher. On December 23, 1954, she married Ron Laman, who survives her in Cridersville.
Donna was a graduate of South High School, class of 1954. She had worked at Wells Department Store, Star Carpet and later the News Gazette, where she retired. Donna was Secretary and then later the President of the American Business Women’s Association. She also played in the Women’s Golf League at The Oaks. Donna loved life. She loved watching Ohio State football on Saturdays with her friends and then meeting every Sunday for lunch at the Eagles with family and playing her joes. She enjoyed golfing, playing hand and foot with her daughters and granddaughters, as well as her once a month visit with the lunch bunch girls from high school. When you would visit, you could find her in the sun room, putting a puzzle together with her two dogs, Charlie and Lulu, right by her side.
