Donna Mae Demyan

March 12, 1933 ‒ August 16, 2018

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: “Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving kindness.”  Donna’s life embodied this quote.

Donna Mae Demyan passed away Thursday, August 16, 2018 at The Waterford in Mansfield. She was 85.

She was born to parents Frank C. Dorner & Stella (Rachel) Dorner Morgan in Mansfield. Donna graduated from Mansfield Senior High with the class of 1951.

She was married to Steve Demyan and they shared 40 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 1994. Now they are together again.

Donna’s full-time job was that of homemaker and caregiver. She had a quick wit, plenty of spunk, and in her spare time she enjoyed auctions, sunbathing, and fishing. But above all, she cherished her family, especially her grandchildren whom she adored.

She is survived by her children Scott (Laura) Demyan, Sherri Demyan (Tom Carter), David (Lynn) Demyan, and Salli (Mike) Webster; grandchildren Cory (Kori), Arielle, Ashley (Mike), Steve (Paula), Joshua, Matt and Morgan; sister Carol (Ed) Doklovic; step-brothers Billy Morgan and Tom Morgan; brothers-in-law George Demyan and Ed (Rita) Demyan; sister-in-law Janet Demyan; nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her parents and step-parents Bill Morgan & Maxine Dorner; brother Eugene Dorner, and her beloved granddaughters Amnee and Chelsea Demyan.

The Demyan family will be holding a private burial at a later date.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at The Waterford and Kindred Hospice for their outstanding care.
