Donna Lucille Rogers was born March 25, 1957, in San Diego, California, to David and Helen (Kline) Williams. She had lived in California most of her life, moving to Reeds Spring, Missouri, from Vacaville, California. Donna was an entrepreneur, creating and operating many small businesses. She was a devoted mother and grandmother to her children. Donna thoroughly enjoyed time with her loved ones, as being active with her family and friends was one of her greatest joys. She was a creative person, using her talents to design and make beaded jewelry, sculpt miniature clay figures, and do graphic design. Her love of Jesus and learning of Jesus remained constant throughout her life. Her abilities to plan, execute, and lead small business and retail operations were often for the benefit of others. She established an internet-based community service organization, Helping Hands in Branson.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Norman Wellman.
Donna is survived by her daughter Kathyrn Williams of Hollister, brother Gregory Williams of San Diego, California; three sisters: Joni Fitzsimmons of California, Lori Ortega of Arizona, and Catherine Williams of Oregon; five grandchildren: James, Joshua, Alex, Nicholas, and Christopher; and eight great-grandchildren: Damian, Cameron, Ashlynn, Jaxon, Jayce, Kimberly, Tobias, Colten, and many nieces and nephews.
