|Let the memory of Donna . be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Donna Sargeant, 75, born on February 21, 1936 and passed away on December 10, 2011. We will remember her forever.
"Thinking of Mom today on her birthdate. Happy Birthday, Mom!"
"Was gonna add a photo, but alas, only three can be added...placed a silk hanging arrangement on Mom's grave but can't share it here"
"Just thinking about Mom today. This flower is a reminder of her smile when she was in the kitchen baking and fixing things for us to eat...seems she loved to do that for us just because she loved us. Always baking something delicious and delectable...You are missed, Mom. I love you."
"Life is moving on under the sun. We are still here and still missing you, sis, but we know that seeing you again is a sure and certain thing according to the scriptures. The Lord's mercy is new every morning and I thank you for planting a love for Him in my life. You were a light not hid under a bushel! The Sun of Righteousness shall arise . . . . ."
"Sure been thinking of my sister today after I got the notice from Forever Missed about this day, Feb. 21st. Hard to think that Donna would have been 79 today. In December it will be four years since she laid down her battle gear and found peace. What a lady! She set a very high standard for me to reach for. I am so thankful for the light that she let shine on my pathway in life. It was danting to follow a star but I am thankful for the light. Donna led me to the altar on that first trip that really counted. Thank you sis for getting me started on this path. We will meet again!"
"Just thinking of Mom the last couple days...had a reminder of her birthday on my phone calendar and it went off yesterday. Life is very short and it is great to know that she lived a good life for the Lord and never really forgot her deep seated holiness spirit and peace. Although she did not recognize me in the end, she will be forever missed in my life. It is best that I live a life filled with the things of the Lord in remembrance of her steadfastness."
"Her husband, Doug"
"Thank you, Forever Missed, for the reminder. Time sure hurries on in our lives and now it is three years since Donna left us. She was my only sister and a great one at that. What an example she left for me and us to follow. If you looked in the dictionary under "Faithfull" you would find a picture of my sister. What a brilliant lady! She knew her mind and always stood by her principles. A very bright example for sure. We will always love the thought of such a wonderful person. No wonder the Lord tells us that he finds pleasure in the death of his "saints". One more victory won! We love you and miss you, sis, and until we meet again . . . . . . Love from your little brother."
"Many,many fond memories without number"
"We were best of friends growing up. That remained that was even after we were married. Donna was always faithful to Jesus. She was there when I received the Holy Ghost. I was her maid of honor. I baked Kendal first birthday cake. His folks were holding revival meetings for us in Salmon, ID. Great Lady1"
"Thinking about Mom this week, her birthday, and missing her big smile."
"I do so miss my sweetheart of over 54 years. Loved her so much."
"Just received the notice and reminder that tomorrow would have been Donna's 78th birthday. My, that seems so long ago now. A wonderful sister, a devoted child of the Lord and a faithful servant in the Kingdom. Memories of you, sis, are gems that I shall always hold dear. I still have the book that you gave me many years ago by my bed side titled, "Mountain Trailways For Youth." I think of you each time I see it. Love is a wonderful thing. It never fades for our God is LOVE. XO Your little brother, Ken Austin"
"Placing a flower in remembrance..."
"Thinking of Donna today. Our life together was so long ago that it is really hard to remember, but I do remember. Donna was five years older but I do recall many great times in our early years. Donna was a very faithful and true child of the Lord. She was so steady in her Bible reading. You were a great example, sis, thank you for all your influence. Thanks for the typing skills! XOXO"
"We almost always had a cake for our birthdays and it was always the best. She was a strict "English" user and did not like some of the songs that mentioned something in bad english and you had better speak the King's English in the right way or she had something to say about it. A true Christian woman and great mother."
"Mom always had refrigerator cookies in the fridge, so we could just slice off what we wanted if we were looking for a snack. There was usually always cinnamon sugar crust pieces from pies left on a plate for snacking, also. She hardly ever threw any food away. She always made something different with the leftovers. She was a great Mom and gave us the love that only a mother can give.More.."
"Donna was the one who got me to really think about the Lord and my need of him in my life. I remember the night well as she got me to go to the altar and pray with her. That began my real life with the Lord. Thank you, sis, for seeing my need and pointing me to the One that could fill it. She set an example for me as I watched her do her faithful reading in the Word to fill the year XO"
"Donna was my big sister. She was a shinning example for me all of her years. I followed her through school and had many of the same teacher who sure remembered Donna. She was very smart, got very good grades and left a high standard of excellance that I never did reach. And of course the teacher reminded me about Donna's class. What a lovely picture, beautiful smile as her heart shows."
"I remember when Mom baked cookies and cakes of many kinds over the years when us boys were still home. That was a special time, because she always let me taste a bit of the cookie dough or whatever dough she was preparing. The cookie dough was always the best and I will always remember the special times we had together."
