Donna D. Rensland

January 3, 1937 ~ June 1, 2023

On Thursday, June 1, 2023, our beloved Donna Rensland went home to be with the Lord at the age of 86. She passed peacefully at her home following a long illness, taking her last breath in the embrace of family. Donna, the daughter of Forrest and Stella Long, was preceded in death by her brother, Wendell Long and his wife, Lucille; sister, Joyce Perry and her husband, Jack. She is survived by her devoted and loving husband of 53 years, Raymond, several nieces and nephews, and many dear and loyal friends. During her life, Donna deeply loved her many pets, traveling to far off lands, spending winters in Florida and summers at Gun Lake where she enjoyed the beautiful flower gardens created by Ray. She was an accomplished organist and could often be heard playing a favorite tune on one her two Lowreys - the last piece played, “My Favorite Things”, from the Sound of Music rests in the music stand. Donna was also a serious euchre player and usually had a good book or two going. These are just a few among many of her favorite pastimes. Visitation will be at 12:00 - 1:00 PM on Wednesday, June 7, 2023 at Caledonia United Methodist Church, 250 Vine St. SE, Caledonia. Visitation will be followed immediately by funeral services at 1:00 PM at the church, with Rev. Christine M. Beaudoin officiating. Donna’s family and friends will gather at the church for a luncheon in celebration of her life and a time of fellowship. Burial will take place after the luncheon at Caledonia Lakeside Cemetery. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to Barry County Animal Shelter.

My condolences to Ray and family. Donna always smiled at me in church when I was a young girl growing up in Caledonia.

We knew Donna and Ray when we were residents at Eagle Point Mobil Home Park. They welcomed us to their Michigan home for the Michigan residents from the park. But most of all of the things I will remember about Donna was her love for animals. She will be missed, Rest in peace in the arms of our Lord🙏
