Donna Ruth Priebe
Nov. 21, 1934 - Feb. 5, 2015
Donna Ruth Priebe, 80, of South Bend, passed away Thursday, February 5, 2015, at Healthwin Hospital. Donna was born November 21, 1934, in Conklin, NY, to the late Donald and Erma (Clark) Campbell.
On May 26, 1956, in South Bend, Donna married Paul D. Priebe and enjoyed 51 years of time together until his death in 2007. She was also preceded in death by two sons, David and Danny Priebe, granddaughter, Charity Hessick, and sister, Sue Czarnecki. Donna is survived by her children, Tim (Annie) Priebe, Scott (Melinda) Priebe and Kimberlee (Jeff) Boren, all of South Bend; grandchildren, Andrew (Rachel Popovich) Priebe, Andrea Priebe, John Hessick, Amanda Falls, Dakota Boren and Camren Boren; great-granddaughter, Quinn Marie Priebe; sisters, Miriam VanDusen, Phyllis Tegman, Grace Smith, Mary (Jack) Thompson, Priscilla (Ken) Wolfe and Joanna (Dennis) Starner; two brothers-in-law, Gene Czarnecki and Norm (Judy) Priebe; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Donna retired from St. Mary's Convent, and was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Mom's smile will surely be missed. She loved visiting with family and enjoyed the friends she made at Healthwin. It was always nice to get a piece of artwork she made since she was very creative and very proud of everything she made. You never saw her without jewelry on and her nails manicured with bright colors. The family wishes to thank Healthwin Specialized Care, Wood-ridge Assisted Living and St. Joseph Regional Medical Center for all the support the family has received and the loving care which Donna was given over the past several years.
Funeral services will be held 1:00 p.m. Monday, February 9th, 2015, at Welsheimer Family Funeral Home, 521 N. William Street, with Rev. Gregory Fiechtner of St. Paul's Lutheran Church officiating. Burial will follow at Highland Cemetery. Friends may visit with the family on Monday at the funeral home from 11:00 a.m. until the time of services.
