Donna Lou Herwig

Donna Lou Herwig, age 90, of Knoxville passed away early Monday morning, January 11, 2016. Donna could light up a room with her smile.  She was gracious, cheerful and loved to travel. She attended Cottey College, received a Bachelors of Social Work from University of Iowa, and a Masters of Library Science from Catholic University. She was a beloved elementary school librarian and a 70 year member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood where she truly enjoyed supporting young women in their educational endeavors.  She had an abiding faith and was active at Walker Chapel in Arlington, Virginia, and Concord United Methodist in Knoxville.  Donna was an accomplished musician and was a violin soloist with the Kansas City Symphony.  She met her true love, Lloyd, at the University of Iowa and they were blessed with 67 years of marriage.  She and Lloyd brought forth a large beautiful family who inherited her strength, her sweetness and her love. Donna loved family gatherings, particularly the annual reunions at Bunker Hill in Missouri and Sanibel Island in Florida.  She was very proud of her children and grandchildren’s accomplishments and supported them in all they did.   Survivors include her loving husband, Lloyd; children, Lisa (Dave) Stinton, Carol (Rich) Altwerger, Jonathan (Roberta) Herwig, Nancy (Rick) Wood, and Richard (Michelle) Herwig; 12 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.  Her spirit continues in the many lives she touched. A celebration of her life will occur at a later date. Memorial may be made to P.E.O. Foundation, 3700 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa 50312   Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel 11915 Kingston Pike is serving the Herwig family
