Donna Mae (Phillips) Larson, 81, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 5, 2023, in Green Bay, WI. She was born in Green Bay, WI on May 3, 1941, to Lawrence and Ella (Keihl) Phillips. She was married to the love of her life, Gerald “Jerry” Larson, for over 20 years. She was a faithful member of St. Bernard’s Catholic Church.
Donna and her beloved Jerry were inseparable until his passing in 2017. They traveled across the country together and enjoyed many winters in the Florida sunshine. The two of them loved to hunt for antiques and they scoured garage sales, flea markets and shops to add to their large collection of rare cast-iron pans. Donna and Jerry were diehard fans of the Packers and Brewers, attending many games with friends and family. They also were passionate NASCAR fans, often traveling to races in Michigan and Daytona and other race tracks around the country. Playing cards was another of their hobbies, and Donna was a real ace when it came to a game of cribbage.
Donna loved life to the fullest and made many lifelong friends throughout her adventures and over her years of employment at Thompsons Meats, Ace Baking and Marriott. She thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated all the great times spent both, at work and outside of work with her colleagues and friends.
Donna was preceded in death by her parents, Lawrence and Ella Phillips; husband, Jerry; brothers, Gerald and Leon Phillips; and sisters, Betty Vanden Busch and Carol Shier.
She is survived by her children, Leroy Daul, grandchildren, Amanda, Nicholas, and Jacob; daughter, Linda, (George) Walton; grandchildren, Jennifer, Daniel, Sean, Laura, Stefan and Spencer; daughter, Christine, (Michael) Lammi; grandchild, Robert; son, Jeffery Daul (Sally Nutt); grandchild, Brittney. She is also survived by her sisters and brother, Marilyn Conard, Larry (Anna Mae) Phillips, Leona (Howard) Klug, Ceily (Butch) Whitman and Darlene Ritchie Vanhorn.
