Donna Jean Moreland Nance was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on August 21, 1939, and stepped into eternity on February 11, 2020.
She is preceded in death by her parents, LaNell and Chester Moreland; and great-granddaughter, Lydia.
Donna is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, John Nance; her children, Mike Nance and wife Delores, Holly Freeland and husband Paul, and Lisa Pruitt and husband Mike; sister, LaGail Huff and husband Dale; grandchildren, Chet and wife Kiri, Luke and wife Kathryn, Derrick, Matt, Jesse and wife Nicole, Griffin, Morgan, Ian, Shelby and wife Meredith, and Cory and wife Kamry; great-grandchildren, Morgan, Sean, Lydia, Aiden, Lilliana, and Connor; and her closest friend Harriette McConaghie many friends and other relatives.
She demonstrated her compassion, faith and bible knowledge through her many ladies classes/retreats, teen classes and Facebook writings. The essence of who Donna was is best described in her own words, “One of the character traits of maturity, is how one treats those who stand on the sidelines of life, those who are often invisible to the mainstream, and those who blend into the background. Seek them out, be kind, be compassionate, be respectful and recognize each persons value. There are no ugly ducklings in the eyes of their Creator.”
