October 31, 1949 – December 17, 2021
Donna Jean (Root) Strunk passed away on Friday, December 17, 2021, at Westview Nursing and Rehabilitation
Center surrounded by loved ones.
Born Oct 31, 1949 in Valparaiso, IN, she was the daughter of Lebert and Dona Root who preceded her in death. She was a homemaker and married Delbert Strunk who preceded her in death. Together they shared a son Alvin (Jaimee) Strunk and he survives.
In addition to her son, Alvin, Donna is survived by two grandchildren, Daniel Strunk and Jordan Strunk; siblings Ben Root, Jerry Root, Mike (Jody) Root, Deborah (Steve) Cain, Doris Weaver, and several nieces and nephews.
In her younger years, Donna enjoyed spending time with her beloved Dachshunds, fishing with her husband, and just spending time with her family on road trips or camping. Donna enjoyed reading a good romance novel or sitting on the front porch of her Springville home talking to the neighbors and waving at everyone that went down the road. She never met a stranger always welcome to share a drink or sit on the porch. Donna was a great storyteller and would share a story anytime someone would listen. Donna spent her last years in the care of Westview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. She spoke highly of her care and she loved the staff and the staff loved her.
She is loved by her family and friends and will be greatly missed. Please consider donations be made in Donna’s memory to the efforts to restore the Springville gymnasium in Springville, Indiana. Donations can be made to Gym Restoration Board and mailed to Gym Restoration, Springville Post Office, Springville, IN 47462.
