Donna Bigelow passed peacefully from this life
Monday morning, April 25 after becoming weak on Easter Sunday due to
natural causes from age. Being the last of her immediate family here on
earth she joined her loved ones in what must have been a wonderful
(September 1, 1918 - April 25, 2011)
Donna was born in Panguitch Utah on September
1, 1918 to Moses Willard Bigelow MD and Amy Ilene Allred. She was the
5th of 8 children. She and her siblings always talked about their
wonderful childhood and the happy times they shared. At an early age
Donna loved school and school activities and was very talented in many
areas such as art, sewing, poetry, singing and playing the piano and
ukulele. These talents she shared throughout her life with those she
loved and with the children she taught.
Donna graduated from Garfield County High
School in 1936 and went on to attend the U of U and Arizona Teachers
College then later finished her bachelors degree at BYU in Elementary
Education in 1942. She taught school for 37 yrs., 16 years were spent
in the classroom and 21 years were spent as a teacher of homebound and
hospitalized children. She always had crafts, sewing, books and songs
at her home for all the children that visited. She was proud to be a
school teacher and was a member of the Alpha Delta Kappa Sorority for
women teachers and later the Business and Professional Women’s Club,
and held several officer and chairman positions in each of these. With
summers off she and her sister Lois would travel to professional
meetings all around the US and to visit family. Traveling became a
lifelong joy to them and they traveled throughout the world together.
Donna was a faithful member of the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in many different auxiliaries
throughout her life. She served a mission in the Western States Mission
in 1939 and later to the California Ventura mission in 1984 with her
sister Lois. She and Lois were very generous in all areas of their
service within the church and within their family.
Donna is survived by her sister-in-law Bonnie
Bigelow and numerous nieces and nephews who were blessed to know and
love her and even travel with her.
Funeral Services will be held Friday May 6.
2011 at 11:00 am at Russon Brothers Mortuary, 1941 No. Main St.
Farmington UT, where friends and family can call from 9:45 - 10:45 am

The family would like to thank the staff and
friends at Apple Tree Assisted Living for the love, friendship and
happiness they brought into Donna's life these past several years. They
were amazing! Also, another thank you to Caregiver Support Network for
helping Donna these last months of her life.
