Donna Mae Lindner was Born on August 20, 1961, in Waterloo, IA, to John and Clarona (Olson) Lindner. Donna’s parents moved back to the Sioux Falls area in 1970. She was always active when she was younger, she played on her schools’ (Tri Valley) basketball and track teams. She earned many medals and held a few records for a while. Donna worked at Campbell’s packing cans as well as Pizza Hutt, finally coming to Sanford Health as a cashier. She brought a lot of smiles to patients and coworkers alike there.
Donna loved animals, especially her dog Izzy and loved cuddling and watching tv with her after a long day. She also enjoyed bingo a lot, and would go all the time with her parents and brother. She took her job seriously and could seem intense. But she was always full of love and care, and wouldn’t hesitate to drop everything to lend a hand.
Donna will be deeply missed by her only child, Cody Lindner, Sioux Falls; four brothers, Johnnie, James, Joseph, and Richard Lindner; and many nieces, and nephews.
Donna was preceded in death by her parents.
