On January 14, 2022, Donna Wagner, beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend died at the age of 80 years. Donna was born in Hammond Indiana and lived in Tucson, AZ for 73 years.
Donna was a kind soul who loved her family, butterflies, hummingbirds and flowers. She never missed a birthday or holiday, although her cards were often a little late. The waiting made it that much more special to the receiver. She was a wizard at cross-stitch and sewing. She most enjoyed reading and spending time with family. Donna donated to many causes, handed out food and essentials to the homeless and spent the majority of her life being a model of kindness. She has touched the lives of so many with her unconditional love, kindness and generosity. She will forever be missed.
Donna worked as a secretary early in her life at an insurance company and then with Wagner & Son Tool & Die. She was offered a full scholarship to the U of A nursing program, but due to a lengthy illness, chose to work at the family business.
Donna was preceded in death by her father Thomas Crocket Moore and her mother Hildegard Beyer. She is survived by her husband Norman, her two sons Eric (Bonnie) and David, her brother Charles (Meredith), her sister Mary Ann Shortman, cousins, nieces, nephews, her grandchildren (Bryan, Corina and Marissa) and many grandchildren of her heart.
