Donna Rae Fuller was born on October 6, 1956 to Don and Arlene Christopherson. She landed in the middle of five girls and was brought up in a home filled with love, laughter, and adventure. Donna was wooed by her best friend’s brother after a trip to Lake Powell and together they raised a family of six kids and five grandchildren. The couple celebrated 44 years of marriage this past January and continued to visit Lake Powell frequently through the years with their family and friends.
While others may feel the same about their own mothers, we can, with certainty, insist that we were truly blessed to have been given her as our mother, daughter, wife and friend. Donna’s love of Christ and relationship with the Lord truly propelled her in her daily life. Genuinely kind, accepting, and full of mischief, she partnered with Bruce to build a home and haven for all of those she loved. She was always ready for the next adventure, armed with stories of her kids and grandkids, and may or may not have hidden rubber snakes under an unsuspecting pillow.
She was our best friend, our mentor, doctor mom, our shoulder to cry on, and the source of laughter in many forms. She is found in the pieces of us and will be remembered in the makeup of each of our days.
Donna, Mom, Mona, this isn’t “goodbye” this is “see you later, alligator”.
