She was born Saturday, April 5, 1941, at Everett, Wash., to Fredrick William and Thelma Beatrice Williamson Lindborg.

Donna married Glynn Samuels on Thursday, July 2, 1959, in Burbank, Calif., and together they are the parents to four children. She worked for many years as a secretary for a missions organization and was a member of First Southern Baptist Church in Goshen. Donna loved Jesus and serving her family – whether it was feeding a crowd at home or camping trips with family and friends, she was in her element. She was quite the poet and for many occasions, she penned unique and loving words of celebration. She loved her family well and will be missed and cherished by us all. We look forward to a joyous reunion one day when we meet again before our Lord Jesus Christ.
