Born December 28, 1936, in Monroe, Iowa, Donna Faye Moore was the daughter of Ray and Letha Marie (Bell) Nearmyer.  She grew up and received her education in the Newton, Iowa, area. 

On April 8, 1960, Donna was united in marriage to Ivan Moore.  The couple made their home in Newton until 1973, then moved to Montezuma where they lived until settling in Story City in 1980.  They were blessed with four children, Tim, Mark, Martin, and LaDonna.

During her time in Newton, Donna was a charter member of Immanuel Baptist Church.  Most recently, she was an active member of CrossRoad Baptist Church in Ames.  Church and family were Donna’s greatest joy and priority.

Donna was preceded in death by a son, Mark Moore; her parents; and a brother, Laverne “Bud” Nearmyer.
