Donna Gail Jackson

March 10, 1956 — May 2, 2018

Donna Gail Jackson

Donna is survived by her long-time companion, Frank DeYoung; her loving mother, Doris Danson (Carlos); her brother, Winfred "Charles" Rigdon Jr.(Linda); her sister, Marian Danson Griffis (Jimmy); her children: Michelle Rigdon Griffis (Shawn) and David Wayne Walling (Charlene); and her 6 Grandchildren: Honor, Holly, and Dylan Raulerson; Chase and Aiden Rigdon; and Alexis Walling. She also had many nieces and nephews that loved her dearly. She was preceded in death by her father, Winfred Charles Rigdon, Sr. in 1956, and beloved stepfather, Wiles Bud Danson, Jr. in 1994.
Donna was an avid Nascar fan with her favorite driver being Chase Elliott. Her entire life she listened to, sang, and wrote Country Music. As a child, she worshipped Loretta Lynn, and never outgrew her passion for music.
Her diverse work history included: store management, long distance truck driver, Correctional Officer and Data Entry Operator with the Florida Department of Corrections. While she loved her career and travels as a coast to coast truck driver, she was so thrilled when she received her certification as a Correctional Officer.
She was a born again Christian and loved to share the word of God. She knew that her final home would be with her Lord and Savior, and those she loved that had gone home before her.
In her later years, she enjoyed staying home, loving her cat Gracie, and utilizing her artistic skills in color sketches and painting.
Donna battled many illnesses for many years, finally succumbing to cancer May 2, 2018. Even through her sickest times and many stays in hospice, she maintained her sense of humor. One of the many times when she was asked her name for identification purposes at the hospital she replied, "I'm Loretta Lynn". During the same visit her doctor asked how she felt, she replied, "with my fingers and toes". She was never at a loss for words.
