Donna Gay Harrell, 89, of Caldwell, Idaho, was born March 29, 1932 in Tooele, Utah to Leslie Love Sagers and Marie Caroline Bendixen. Donna passed away in Caldwell on December 21, 2021. She was proceeded in death by her parents, three brothers, one sister, her husband David Lee Harrell, son Leslie Gene Harrell and a grand-daughter Toni Nichole Harrell. She is survived by her sister Bonnie Jo Zanelli, a daughter Joanie Marie Harrell, son Terry Lee Harrell and wife Trina Kathleen Harrell and son Charles Lynn Harrell. Donna has an amazing legacy of 14 grand-children, 22 great grand-children, 3 great-great grand-children and endless nieces and nephews. Her greatest treasure was her family and friends.

Donna was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and had a testimony of the truth and of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the blessing of having a living prophet and knowing that families are forever. She often spoke of the time while working in Salt Lake City at the church headquarters in 1951 when she met the Prophet David O McKay in his office and was able to visit with him for nearly an hour. She was very proud knowing that her great grand-father William Henry Harrison Sagers joined the church in 1833 at the age of 18. He served eight missions, was a member of Zions Camp and was called as one of the original twelve High Counselman at Kirtland, Ohio. She was so blessed by having a loving Ministering Sister Linda Vickham, an angel here on Earth.

Donna worked for Carnation/Nestle in Nampa, Idaho for 28 years retiring in 1999. She was a hardworking and loving person her whole life. Many of her most enjoyable times were her trips to Scotland, Ireland, Wales, England, Mexico and Cancun. She loved family, barbecues, reunions and trips. She also spent numerous hours creating albums of pictures, stories and family genealogy for many family members. Her work opened up many doors leading to identifying family well back into the 1500s.

Family and friends are invited to Donna’s memorial service, 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 3015 S Kimball Avenue, Caldwell, Idaho.
