Donna Mae Updike

IMG_2227Our beloved mother, Donna Mae Updike, has gone to her Father, on December 14, 2013.  Although we grieve we know she is in his loving arms.

Donna was born in Toppenish, WA to Ed and Agnes Snook, October 21, 1935.  She was a loving and caring ‘Big Sister’ to Ron (June), Gary (Sharon), Dennis (Glenda), and Bob. 

Donna raised three caring, kind sons, John (Natalie), Ron (Jenifer), and Terry (Maggie).  They learned love of life, family, and faith from their amazing mother.

She found the love of her life in Dave Updike.  Even though their time together was short, they treasured every moment with love and adventure.  The happy memories she shared with Dave were a source of strength for Donna in the years to come.

Donna loved family and friends above all else.  She was a gracious, thankful, beautiful woman.  She is survived by her brothers:  Gary, Dennis, and Bob.  Her sons: John, Ron, and Terry.  Her grandchildren: Kristina (Casey), Ashley (Drew), Brandon, Jeff (Steph), Nick, Jesse, Taylor, and Alex.  Before her passing she enjoyed time with her two great grandchildren Olivia and Crosby.

She was preceded in death by her parents Ed and Agnes, her love Dave and her brother Ron.

Thank you to all of Donna’s  loving friends, she treasured all of you. There will be a Rosary at 7:00 on Dec. 20, 2013 at Blessed Teresa Parish 17856 Woodinville Duvall Rd Woodinville.  A Celebration of life will be Dec. 21, 2013 at 11:00, also at Blessed Teresa Parish.

    Just wanted to say how loving Donna has been to me and my kids all the time that I’ve known her. She always was concerned about my health even though hers wasn’t all the time great. We will miss you Donna very much!

    Dear Family of Donna…Donna and I were best friends at Holy Names in Seattle and ice skated together every time possible. I met her again in Ballard at a restaurant 15 years ago.
