Donna Mae (Veseley) Stewart

Donna Mae (Vesely) Stewart age 87, of Rangely, Colorado passed away on Wednesday September 15, 2021. She was born on May 29, 1934 to Frank and Mabel Vesely on their homestead in a beautiful valley between Clark, Colorado and Hahns Peak, Colorado in a small log cabin. She was the first born of 4 children: Donna, Darrell, Delores, and Darwin. She spent her early school years in a one room school in Hahns Peak. During the winter months she often boarded with the teacher as the snow was too deep to travel in. The family later moved to Craig, Colorado where Donna graduated high school in 1951.

Donna married the love of her life, Alvin Stewart on July 6, 1951 in Billings, Montana. They have six children. Eddie (Sharon), Lynda (Brad), Mike (Tammie), Steven (Grace), Kevin (Jeanine), and Randy (Maxine). They have 18 grandchildren and 30 plus great grandchildren. 

Donna enjoyed sewing, crocheting, reading, and embroidery. She also had a lot of fun riding her Honda Odyssey. Donna enjoyed watching the hummingbirds at her feeder. She also loved little horny toads, and would catch one whenever possible. She always turned them loose later.

Donna worked at the Rangely Post Office and was Postmaster in Dinosaur for a time. She became the office manager when they opened the family welding and machine shop in 1977. 

Donna is preceded in death by her parents, her husband of over 50 years, Alvin, and by her brother Darrell.

Donna was a faithful Christian lady and will spend her eternity in Heaven. It is said that on the timeline of eternity our lives are only a dot and what we do with that dot is what counts. Our wonderful mother and grandmother really made her dot in time count. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. 

Funeral services will be held Monday September 20, 2021 at 11:00am at the Grace Baptist Church (188 South Stanolind Ave, Rangely). A Visitation will be held from 9:45am - 10:45am at the church.
