How Did We Do?

Donna Mae (Green) Persons, 94, of rural St. Charles MN, went to be with her Lord and Savior Tuesday, January 7, 2020, at Whitewater Health Services in St. Charles, MN.

Donna was born May 30, 1925 in Beaver, MN to Herbert and Minnie Green (Corwin) Green. She attended the Beaver School in Beaver and graduated from Plainview High School in 1943. She attended the Northwestern School of the Bible in St. Paul for a short time. On June 3, 1944 she and Russell Persons were married at Berea Moravian Church north of St. Charles. They were dairy farmers north of St. Charles their entire married lives.

Faith and family were an important part of Donna's life. She had a strong faith and an interest in missions, both home and abroad. Donna was a kind, unassuming, caring and faithful woman. Her faith made her a strong person. Her pride in her work and a strong work ethic was proven in her dedication to her Lord, church, husband, family and 50 years on the farm. Donna trusted Jesus as her personal Savior at the age of 12 and declared her faith publicly in baptism in the early 1990's. She belonged to Grace Community Church in Eyota and was involved in various church activities over the years. Donna enjoyed spending time with family, cooking, baking, gardening, and tying quilts. She entertained the Persons' family for years at Thanksgiving.

She is survived by her four children, Arthur (Elaine) Persons of St. Charles, Barbara (Darrell) Borneman of St. Charles, Carol (Lee) Smith of St. Charles, and Lee (Carol) Persons of St. Charles; 13 grandchildren; 27 Great-grandchildren; one brother-in-law, Ray Jewell of LA Crescent; one sister-in-law, Marge Persons of St. Charles; and many nieces and nephews. Her husband, Russell; parents, Herbert and Minnie; one brother, Gerald Green; and one sister, Gretchen Jewell preceded her in death.

Funeral Services will be 1:30 PM Monday, January 13, 2020, at Grace Community Church in Eyota (311 Carolann St. NW, Eyota, MN 55934) with Pastor Mark Young officiating. Burial will follow at Hillside Cemetery in St. Charles. Friends may call from 5-8 PM Sunday, January 12, 2020, at the Hoff Funeral Home - St. Charles Chapel.
