She was adept at using horse drawn implements, then transitioned into their first steel-wheeled tractors. In her younger years she worked in an office, before marriage, and spent time working for Stucto Factory, making toys. In her free time she enjoyed quilting and canning, and loved to bake Christmas cookies! She was also a lover of birds and volunteered as a Sunday School teacher. Donna will be dearly missed by her two sons, Howard and Matthew Wurster, both of Elizabeth, IL, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her husband, Elwood; parents, Oscar and Vera; sisters, Shirley Yingling and Betty Rausch, and twin sisters who passed as infants.
