Obituary: Donna Morton, 62, of Scottville.

Donna Maye (Morris) Morton, loving wife and mother, passed away Friday, August 28, 2020 at the age of 62. Donna was born on July 1, 1958 in Roxboro, NC to Dorothy (Trammell) and Marshall Morris. She graduated from Person Senior High School in Roxboro, NC in 1976. 

On December 18, 1992, she married the love of her life, Garry LeMoyne Morton. Together, they raised their beautiful son, Wesley LeMoyne Morton, and their adopted niece, Kaci Marie (Clayton) Messeder in Scottville.

Donna had a passion for her faith in God, cooking and baking until the fridge was too full, nursing sick animals, riding the Harley with Garry, driving the golf cart with Wesley, painting various craft projects with Kaci, and dancing around the kitchen to bluegrass and classic rock. She loved reading books to her son in animated voices, singing along to his favorite shows, and going for walks around the block. She was known for her tight hugs, infectious laugh, and delicious baking. She was a beloved member of the Summit Church of Christ.

Donna was preceded in death by her father, Marshall; her son, Wesley; and her stepfather, Buck. 

She is survived by her husband, Garry; her niece, Kaci, Kaci’s husband, Isaac; her mother, Dot; her sister, Marsha; and her in-laws, LeMoyne and Shirley.

A short memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 outdoors at the Summit Church of Christ. Donna will be privately laid to rest at Center Riverton Cemetery. Donations may be sent to either Mason County Animal Control or the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Donna’s memory.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Oak Grove Funeral Home of Ludington. www.oakgroveludington.com.
