Donna's Story

Text size

Donna G. Linn (Phelps), 83, of Danville, was born Feb. 17, 1935, in Harvey. She was well known for her wit, humor and good-natured heart. On Feb. 23, 2018, Donna peacefully left us to rejoin her husband Roy N Linn Jr, who preceded her in death. Donna loved her two boys Roy "Sonny" Linn III and Patrick K Linn "as big as the sky times a hundred no flapjacks" and was a loving and generous mother-in-law to both Debbe West-Linn and Drake Taylor. But undoubtedly, her most wonderful joy in life was her granddaughter, Haleigh Morrison. She loved Haleigh and her husband Matthew almost as much as her great-grandson Theo Blaine. She also leaves behind granddaughters, Courtney (Greg) Osborne and Megan (Ashley) Bolen; and their children, Ava and Rowan King, and Louis Bolen, whom she thought the world of. Donna also leaves behind a cherished brother, Kim Phelps; and a dear sister, Rebecca (Mark) Forsyth; as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews who will all miss her terribly. Donna was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Adahbell Phelps; and her sisters, Connie McGowen and Sondra Swisher. Anyone who knew Donna, knew that they had a friend for life. She was truly one of a kind. Donna Linn's visitation will be held at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 3940 N Vermilion St., in Danville Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2018, between 1-3 p.m., with services immediately following at 3 p.m. Officiating will be Reverend James Blue. Burial will be at Sunset Memorial Park following the service.
