DONNA WINTERS WENT TO HEAVEN ON TUESDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2015
August 1944-February 2015
Mrs. G and I met Donna and her husband Gary Winters in the summer of 1975. The Winters family had come to enroll at Hyles-Anderson College. He was from Arkansas and so was I, which gave us a common background. Our families quickly became friends.
Music teacher Jim Salee was killed in an automobile accident in October, 1975, on his way to teach at Hyles-Anderson College. Gary was asked by Dr. Jack Hyles to assume the duties once held by Jim Salee as head of the Music Department.
Upon graduation Gary, Donna, and family pastored our home church in Kalamazoo, MI, for little over two years.
In August of 1980 we came together to Longview, TX,. He was the Associate Pastor of Longview Baptist Temple. They served for 7 years faithfully and added much to the ministry.
Donna was a faithful Sunday school teacher, soul winner, children’s worker, church member, mother, and wife. She was friendly to all and made time for everyone. She was a wonderful servant of the Lord. She will be sadly missed. God bless her memory. It is Heaven’s gain, but our loss! We love you Donna!
