Donna Mae McReynolds Brogdon, age 92, of Summit Township, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, February 11, 2017. Born September 14, 1924, she was a daughter of the late Ralph McReynolds and Florence Stafford McReynolds.
Donna graduated from Academy High School in 1942 and married Donnell Brogdon on January 18, 1946. She was devoted to her husband and family and an active parishioner of Summit United Methodist Church where she was a member for 75 years. She retired from Sears in 1982 after 20 years service as a department manager.
Donna was blessed with the ability to play piano and organ by ear, and because of her poetic talent, delighted her family each year with a new Christmas poem.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by two sisters, Catherine McReynolds and Betty Stewart, and a brother, Paul McReynolds.

The Brogdon family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to her dedicated and compassionate caregivers: Toni, Sue W., Rhonda, Sue C., and Kay.
