KALISPELL — Donna left this world quickly and peacefully on Aug. 29, 2019 at Kalispell Regional Medical Center following a massive stroke. She will be remembered for her “salty,” straightforward personality, her fierce independence, her love of The Prairie, and her many kitties!

She was born Oct. 9, 1942 to Millie and Red Renner in Spokane, Washington. A life-long lover of animals, she bought her first of many horses when she was 12 years old — and then went home and told her parents! Raising horses eventually gave way to raising her children. She loved her three children fiercely, in her own unique way.
