Donna L. Woolridge died peacefully on December 21, 2016, at the age of 73.

She was the beloved daughter of Deward and Zelma (Gilbert) Mullins, born in Crandon on March 30, 1943.

Donna married her best friend and love of her life, Robert Woolridge, on February 5, 1963, and resided in Waukesha.

Donna is further survived by her sister, Gypsy Faircloth.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Guy Mullins, and sisters June Fisher and Jo Vees.

Donna loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. Her and Bob were inseparable. They enjoyed frequent road trips, particularly to Minocqua to take in the beautiful colors of fall. A favorite destination of theirs was Lake of the Torches to play the slots. She had a life long love of reading. Donna especially loved the colorful bouquets of flowers Bob would often surprise her with.
