Donna Jean Elliott passed away September 5, 2011, due to complications from MS, resulting in aspiration pneumonia. She passed peacefully with her family surrounding her. Born in Dayton, Ohio in 1948, to Edward and Rosie Kreitzer, Donna spent her life caring for others. She cared for her younger brothers when they were growing up, and raised five children of her own. Diagnosed with MS at the young age of 21, she never let the disease bring her down.

Her strength and determination were shown in every action, every day. No matter what challenges life brought her, she handled them with grace and a smile on her face. She has truly been an inspiration to many, and she will be greatly missed. She is survived in life by her loving and devoted husband of 44 years, Sam Elliott; her 5 children: Terri and her spouse Lizz, Sammy and his spouse Ruth, Mark, Julie and her spouse Darrell, and Jennie and her spouse Gustavo; her 14 grandchildren: Aimee, Sadie, Natalie, Monica, Forrest, Jada, Ramona, Rachael, Sammy, Lydia, Sophia, Bella, India, and Max; one great-grandchild Malakai; two brothers, Joe and Tim; brothers-in-law, Michael and Steven; and sister-in-law, Karen. She is preceded in death by her in-laws, Sam and Mary Elliott, as well as her parents and three brothers, Butch, Ronnie and Jerry.

There will be a celebration of Donna’s life at the Glenwood Springs Middle School on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011 at 1 p.m. There will be a potluck dinner following the ceremony. All who knew and loved Donna are welcome to join the family in celebration.
