Donna Marie Monroe, age 82, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on May 29, 2018.
She lived at the Powell Valley Care Center with her husband.
Donna was born on March 11, 1936, in Billings, Montana, to Ed and Virginia Schock and was the oldest of two children. She lived most of her life in Powell and graduated from Powell High School.
Donna married the love of her life, George Monroe, on Dec. 11, 1954. Her most important work was being a homemaker and being a mother to her four children. She also was a very gifted seamstress, a bookkeeper for her and her husband’s trucking company, George Monroe Trucking, and their bars, Clyde’s Bar and The K Bar.
Donna unconditionally loved and cared for her husband, her children, grandchildren, and pets with great devotion. She will be remembered for the beauty that her hands and heart brought into this world with her lovely piano playing, skilled sewing, beautiful decorative painting, and her beloved gardening. Her deep, strong faith in Jesus made her a remarkably loving and strong woman.
She is survived by her husband, George, of 64 years; daughters Lynn Johnson of Pocatello, Idaho, Peggy (Rex) Snyder of Riverton, Janet (Darwin) Holte of Grand Junction, Colorado and Casey (Jill) Monroe of Powell; nine grandchildren; six great-grandchildren, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Betty Schock; her mother, Virginia Schock; and her father, Edward Schock.
There will be no services as per her wishes.
