- About Us
Donna Kaye Gold, a resident of Henryetta, passed away Friday, Sept 7, 2018 in Henryetta, OK at the age of 72. She was born Feb 8, 1946 to LaVerne William Potter Sr & Ima Gene (Luker) Potter.
She was born & raised in Henryetta and graduated from Henryetta High School in 1965. Donna married Glenn Gold in 1965 and together they had 3 children.
Donna worked at Wal-Mart for 30 years and retired in 2010. Sunshine, rain or snow, she was there. She wore many hats during her time with Wal-Mart. From cashier, to bakery, to receiving and answering phones, there wasn't much she didn't do. She made many life-long friends, co-workers and customers alike. She never knew a stranger. After her retirement, a typical Wal-Mart trip would be an all-day event. She just loved being around and with people.
Donna found great joy in the simple things. She enjoyed reading a good book and going to church. She collected Denim Days Kids, sold AmWay, Tupperware & Home Interior and loved all things cobalt blue.
Her biggest joy in life was spending time with her kids and grandkids. She was always game for a good tea party, building towers of blocks, playing in the ball-pit, or reading a bedtime story.
Donna was a lifelong member of The First Church of the Nazarene.
She was preceded in death by her parents, stillborn twin sons, brother-in-law, Henry Bezinque, niece, Gina Potter, nephew, Shane Potter, and brother-in-law, James Gold.
