Sweet blessings to our dear neighbor and friend. Couldn’t ask for a nicer gal. RIP lady .
John and Leia Johnsen and family
Donna was a neighbor and friend for many years, she was always a hard worker, but she still liked to take time to visit. She has missed Arnie so much, glad they are together again. Our sincere sympathy to the family.
Donna was a very nice person. I enjoyed our visits.
I always enjoyed seeing Donna at the office or talking with her on the phone. She shared such wonderful stories of babysitting my dad and siblings. She was a kind woman and always friendly with me. Our family sends their condolences.
The Lesline Family has been a presence in the Harris Grove community for generations. Donna worked so hard to keep that heritage going and share it with those who noticed her efforts. I remember the sisters singingi. May she rest well. The Lord bless and keep all who grieve with lasting peace.
Sharry I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Hugs

sharry so sad to lose your sister. May she Rest In Peace.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have very fond memories of Donna. Our family lived near Arnie & Donna when I was a little girl and my sister & I would roller skate for hours & hours on a driveway not far from where they lived. They enjoyed sitting outside & watching us. And my dad worked with Arnie for many years at Clark’s Limestone Quarry. Donna & I had many talks and she loved telling stories of her younger years. I always enjoyed her & her stories & will certainly miss it. She talked about going out to the farm weekly & she always worried about the thistles. If I’d see her walking I’d stop & ask her if she would like a ride – she always said no; she enjoyed walking. Donna was a very hard worker & she loved her family & friends. Donna will be missed by many. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give you peace and comfort you when needed.
Donna was such a nice person and good neighbor! We had many a visit along the sidewalk . She was always such a hard worker but she seemed to enjoy keeping busy. My kids and I spent many a Fourth of July watching the fireworks from her front yard with her. She will be missed so very much.
Donna always took time to visit and ask how things were going. She will be missed!
