Donna passed into glory on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at the Augusta University Medical Center in Augusta, GA. 

Donna was born December 15, 1943 to Louis and Helen Wittnebel in Norfolk, Nebraska.  She was baptized and confirmed at Christ Lutheran Church.  In 1962, Donna graduated from Norfolk Senior High School. 

On July 27, 1963, Donna married Ronald McCain in Yankton, South Dakota.  The couple were married exactly 57 years.  Donna and Ron were blessed with three children, Jody, Jacque and Chad. 

Before being married, Donna briefly worked for AT&T.  In 1965, the family moved to Dubuque, Iowa where she worked for John Deere and Flexsteel. 

After 19 years, the family moved back to Norfolk, so that Donna could take care of her mother.

In 1984, Donna was hired at Sherwood Medical where she retired in 2016 after 30 years of service.  After retiring, Ron and Beau (their dog) decided to sell everything and move to Georgia to be near their daughters and grandchildren.

Donna loved cutting cedar trees in her pasture, gardening, playing bingo, going to casinos and crocheting baby blankets for many hospitals and her daughter’s friends.  Her newest love was playing the board game “Catan” with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband Ronald, daughter and son-in-law Jody and Cliff of Augusta, GA, daughter Jacque of Dearing, GA, three grandchildren Mariah, Kelsi and Collin, great grandchild Hollis and several grand puppies.

Donna was preceded in death by her son Chad, parents and many in-laws.

Thank you all dearly for loving me and only remember the good times.
