Donna Dawkins Obituary

Donna Kay Dawkins, 76, of Crooksville, Ohio died in the early morning hours of Saturday, October 15, 2022 at her home.

She was born July 4, 1946 in Crooksville, the daughter of the late Ernest C. and Rose (nee: Braglin) Ross.

Donna was a former pottery worker at The Hull Pottery and later at Beaumont Pottery both in Crooksville.  In her leisure time, she enjoyed working jigsaw puzzles.  Her main interest in life was her family.  Her children adored her and said that she was the most loving and caring person they have ever known and felt honored that she was their momma. She truly was there for everyone and anyone that needed her.  Donna was everyone’s ‘go-to’ person and the glue that held the family together.

She will be very sadly missed by her children and their spouses, Amy Bankes (Richard Fox), Dee Ann  and Arvin Pettet, Stacy and Mike Queen, Amanda and Brian Lindsey, Darren and Traci Dawkins; her grandchildren, Trenton Dawkins, Jeri Pettet, Madison (Bree) Gardner, Silas Queen, Levi Pettet, Katelyn Lindsey, Michael Queen, Misty Dillon, Christie Queen, Heidi Milner and Amanda Queen; her siblings and their spouses, Ann (John) Spung, Rita Lipps, Sue (Blaine) Davis, Roger (Rhonda) Ross and Jigger (Polly) Ross; many nieces and nephews and her furbaby, Sadie Jane.  Donna was anxiously awaiting the arrival of her first great-grandson, Lucas Gardner will be here in about three weeks.

In addition to her parents, Donna was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry D. Dawkins who died December 7, 1991; her great grandson, Jakers Bush; her brothers, Walter Ernest Ross and Ronald Lee Ross; her son-in-law, Rodney Bankes; her loving brother-in-law, Earl Lipps, her father-in-law and mother-in-law, James and Mildred (nee: Hashburger) Dawkins and her special friend, Mike Love.

Family and friends will be received 2-4 PM, Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at Goebel Funeral Home, 36 N. Buckeye St., Crooksville where funeral services will be held at 4 PM with Pastor Mike Queen as celebrant.  Donna will be cremated following the services and her cremated remains will be buried next to her husband in Crooksville Cemetery at 11 AM, Friday, October 21, 2022.
