Donna Gaye Nenninger was born July 20 1951, in Cape Girardeau Mo., the daughter of Ernest and Wilma (Stratton) Eaker. Donna married John David Nenninger and was blessed with three beautiful children, Mike Nenninger (Monica) of Marble Hill, Becky Moseler (Matt) of Manhattan KS and Adam Nenninger (Kristen) of Leopold.
John David and Donna traveled the United States following his Air Force career. Eventually Donna tired of flight and decided to travel the states as a trucker. Donna LOVED her grand-kids and took the opportunity as a trucker to remember each of them with "Bags of goodies" each of the eleven grandchildren would receive identical gifts at Christmas, which would include trinkets from all over the United States. None cost more than a dollar. After all, there were eleven of them! Each of the kids, 4 years old or 14, got the same tire gauges, beef jerky, and always pajama pants!
On those trips she did not forget herself, she blessed herself with bird houses of every description and displayed each one through out her house. Donna loved her children and preferred to leave the discipline to others. She never missed a Sunday going to Hahn Chapel.
She is survived by her children, those eleven grandchildren, a brother Ed Eaker, of Marble Hill and a sister, Diana Norwood of Mountain Home, AR. She was loved by everyone and each of those will miss her dearly.
