Donna A Robertson passed away Dec. 24, 2019. Our mom, and grandmother was 89. Donna was born March 24, 1930 in Bend, OR. to Arthur C Wright and Martha M Wright. She married W Montague Robertson “Monte” September 7, 1952 in Tulelake, CA. Monte preceded her in death in 1988. Donna is survived by her son Mark (Sarah) Robertson, daughter Lynn R (Daniel) Joyce and grandsons, Benjamin Robertson, James (Lauren)Joyce, Stephen Joyce, Peter Robertson and her cat Tommy.
Donna grew up on a farm in Tulelake CA with her older brother Nolyle ”Bill”.
She then headed off to attend college at So. Oregon College in Ashland, OR. There she met and later married Monte.
As a hobby she and Monte collected antique bottles and glassware and traveled to antique shows all over the country. She continued her enthusiasm for collecting and cultivating her friendships for several years after Monte’s death.
Her other hobbies included many decades of bowling in several leagues. She made many friendships through this sport too. Donna also spent a good deal of time as a volunteer for Al-Anon. There she helped those in crisis with information and compassion, and made some life-long friendships here as well.
Donna very much enjoyed watching her grandsons grow up and was a great fan of all their activities. She almost always won the “love you more” competition.
Services will be conducted at a later date. Please check back at cannonmortuary.com for further information.
