On June 9, 2017 we Iost a beautiful lady, and God got a beautiful angel.
Donna J. LaFerr, age 67, of Elgin, passed away June 9, 2017 at Journeycare Hospice Care Center in Woodstock, IL. She was born in Carthridge, MO to her loving parents, David and Pearl Rea (nee Smith).
Donna married the love of her life, Ron, after meeting him while out with a girlfriend. Ron bought them both drinks, and took them each out on a date, and he chose to pursue Donna. He will always remember the look on Donna’s face when he showed up to her workplace to give her a dozen red roses after their first date.
They enjoyed 32 wonderful years together, raising a family. Donna became a die-hard Marine mom, who shared her motherly words of affection by recording audio tapes of special greetings and sending them to both of her sons in the service.
Donna worked at CR Industries for ten years, where she was an outstanding and beloved employee.
Loved ones will remember Donna as always smiling and ready to laugh, with an incredibly caring heart.
Donna was preceded in death by her son, Trent Bevans; and brother, Larry Rea.
Donna is survived by her loving husband, Ron; children Troy Bevans, Cathyrine LaFerr, Rebecca LaFerr and Arissa LaFerr; grandchildren Jack Bevans, Sam Bevans, James Bevans, Ryan Pettus, Aubree Heathman, Ethan LaFerr, Destiny Nagle, Aiden Nagle, Rowan Nagle, Paulina Palacios, Alejandra Palacios and Eduardo Palacios; brothers Don and Wayne Rea; uncle Dick Smith; and cousin Dorothy Paton.
