Donna Deloris Everett passed away March 6, 2019 peacefully surrounded by her family. She was born May 8th, 1935 in Helena, MT to Wickie and Catherine (Katie) DeBree.
Donna graduated from Helena High school in 1953. After graduation she worked at the First National Bank, returning to work at the VA Credit Union, after she raised her children.
In 1955 Donna met the love of her life Kenneth L Everett. They married on January 28, 1956. They recently celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary. She was a wonderful mother to 6 children, a grandmother to 12 children and a great grandmother to 2 children. She was an active fund raiser for the Y Lions AAU swim team for many years, since a majority of the team were her children. She truly enjoyed her 12 grandchildren, and was always supportive of their activities. She was an amazing cook and homemaker. She was a native of Helena and had a passion for its long history. She loved exploring Montana with family and friends. Most summers found her at the family cabin on Canyon Ferry Lake where she loved to entertain her family and many friends. She treated everyone like family. Donna was known for her humor, quick wit, zest for life and will be truly missed by all.
