Donna Mae Bryant was born March 8, 1936, with her family moving to the Coralville area when she was a child. She married Kenneth D. Slade on November 16, 1952 in Iowa City. The couple built their home in Coralville on 13th. Avenue shortly after their marriage. Donna was so proud to be a resident of Coralville, she loved her many friends there and all of her family. In years past she enjoyed being on bowling leagues at Coral Lanes, she was an avid reader and loved to do knitting and crocheting. If you knew Donna, the good old days always came into the conversation! For years Donna was a beautician from her shop in her home, and for over 16 years she worked at the Veterans Administration Hospital in the medical billing department when she retired.

Her family includes her son, Phil (Marty Winegarden); daughter-in-law, Rita Slade; two grandchildren, Sarah Slade (Morgan Ripperton) and Brian Slade; and great-grandson, Kolby.

Donna was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Kenny; and sons, Kenny Don and Steve Slade.
