Donna M. Sweazey, 92

Donna Marie (Adams) Sweazey was born on July 24, 1927, in Austin, Minnesota, to Albert and Julia (Bell) Adams. She grew up in Austin, graduating from Austin High School in 1945. On Aug. 26, 1946, she was united in marriage to Lawrence Sweazey in Austin. To this union, two daughters were born: Terrie and Susan. Donna and Lawrence spent many wonderful years together until his death on Aug. 8, 1999.

In her earlier years, she liked going fishing with her husband. Recently, she enjoyed reading, embroidery and playing the piano. You could usually catch her singing “You Are My Sunshine” as well as some other favorites of hers. Donna was very proud of her family. She can be described as easy going, spunky and funny. It didn’t matter where or what Donna was doing, but you could be assured that whatever it was, she was always late getting there!
