Obituary for Donna Jean Collier

Donna Jean Collier was born on October 13, 1925 to Maggie Belle (Ramsey) and Robert Horney. She was the youngest of five children.
She prepared and lived her life for the day she would meet her Lord and Savior. On Wednesday April 20 she slipped away to join the Heavenly Host.
On Valentine’s Day 1946 she was united in marriage to Garth Collier and to this union were born seven children. All her children were born on Wednesday; Sandra (Larry) Lamb, Judy Moore, Carolyn (Ken) Still, Kathy (Ed) Bower, Garth Robert (Linda) Collier, Donna Marie (Jeff) Baker, Keith (Michelle) Collier.
In addition to being a mother to own children she became a stabilizing force to nieces, grandchildren, and a haven for anyone who needed love and attention. Many bonds were formed over the years with children, elderly and lonely people. Her home was always open to anyone in need.
Everyone knew Donna had a heart as big as her magnetic smile. Donna was a great home maker and mother and also worked many years as a nurse’s aide. She and her husband owned and operated a restaurant in Iowa just before returning to come back to Pope County. She enjoyed travel and saw many interesting places.
Donna is survived by her seven children, eighteen grandchildren, twenty-two great grandchildren, nine great great grandchildren, two sisters-in-law, numerous nieces and nephews, her friend of seventy years Arvetta Rose and her Pastor, Billy Green.
