Donna Marie (Porterfield) Williams, 93, passed away on July 5, 2022 of heart related causes. She was home with daughters, Trina Taylor and Carla Webber. Dog Chrissy was at her hip.

Donna was born January 5, 1929 in Dodge City, Kansas, to Carl and Alma (Worman) Porterfield.  Dust storms convinced the family to come west in 1938, settling first in Cottage Grove, Oregon.  Donna was a proud CGHS graduate, Class of 1947. 

She married twice:  March 12, 1950, to Stan Mellies, living in Eugene and Portland, with Trina and Carla. (They divorced in 1962.)  August 21, 1965 she wed Robert G. Williams, adding his three children, Bob Jr., Betty Ann, and Sherrie. They raised a blended family, and built a cabin on North Tenmile Lake in Oregon with friends. Fun on the water and snow marked those happy years. (Divorced in1988.)

Donna enjoyed meeting and helping people. It was always part of her work in office, banking, chamber of commerce, travel agency or lodge, and she chose bartending as her last career training and had fun at i.

Donna was predeceased by her brothers, Charles and Russell, and stepchildren Bob Jr. and Betty Ann. She is survived by daughters Trina and Carla, son-in-law Mark Webber, stepdaughter Sherrie Stutheit, and grandchildren Jenny Webber, Timber Joey Webber, Dustin Webber, Kindy Bullis Beagley, Samantha Bullis Siggins, and many great-grandchildren.  

She believed "Love isn't love till you give it away" so share a little love today!
