Donna Anderson Obituary

Donna M. Anderson, age 82, passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2023 at Meadowbrook in Oconto Falls. 

She was born on January 4, 1941 to the late Alvin and Eleanore (Swanson) Karman. She was born and raised in Crivitz, WI and graduated from the local High School in 1959. Donna then moved to Green Bay where she attended and graduated from the Accredited School of Beauty Culture in June 1960. She worked at Merle Norman Beauty Shop for a short time before transitioning to AC Nielsen Co.

Donna married Wayne K. Anderson on February 24, 1962 at West Moravian Church where they were active members. She was a member of the Women’s Fellowship, Choir, the CEC and outreach committee, and also served as a youth group leader.

In July 1988, she became a nursing assistant (CNA) at Western Village Nursing Home and stayed there for the next handful of years until her retirement in April 1998. She enjoyed going “Up North” with Wayne to Crivitz and Fence, along with all the traveling they did during their 48 years of marriage. Donna also enjoyed spending time with her family and being the primary “babysitter” for her two grandchildren, Juan Jr. and Bianca.
