|Message||I remember when growing up still in grade school and either Donna and Nancy coming down to my parents farm (Tom and Verla Geloff of Sterling ND) or going up to Towner or even visiting at Cherry Lake south of Tuttle ND. All having fond memories of her being around. Never ever seeing her without a smile proudly displayed, like she must have been born with. Always in a best of spirits. Always happy and cheerful to everyone. Gosh I miss those days now thinking about it. I will always remember her for her smile permanently on her at all times. Thanks for being so cheerful all the time.|
|Message||I had the privilege of teaching both Aaron and Tara in their elementary years, and I vividly remember how immensely proud Mrs. Gebur was of having such kind, happy, smart children; she brushed off my attempts to give any credit to parenting. |
May warm memories comfort you, her family and friends, as you cope with her passing.
|Message||My sympathies to Donna's family, her husband, children, grandchildren, Bill, Dorothy and Nancy. Donna was a classmate and a fellow 4-Her. I have many fond memories of those days and had always hoped I would get to visit with her again. I am so sorry for your loss, she was way too young.|
|Message||On our last visit we were all gathered at the dinner table enjoying a board game. At one particular point in the game Ron offered up what apparantly was a fairly obvious play suggestion and Donna just looked at him and said "Really!?!" It was in the way she said it that got me and those fortunate enough to be there. Sarcastic and hilarious. I will always remember her laughter and good sense of family and humor most. Thank you Donna for the memorable moments and warmth you brought into our lives.|
