Donna Ray Hall (formerly Watkins), 65 years, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on March 11th, 2021 in her home in Thornton, CO. She was born in New Jersey on October 8th, 1955; the middle of five children of Carl and Betty Watkins.
Donna was born to a military family and lived all over including Austria and Italy, finally settling in Birmingham, AL. She had one child, Kelly, with her former husband Tony Hall and lived in Alexandria, AL for many years. Kelly served in the U.S. Navy, and, after the birth of her first grandchild she moved with her daughter to Great Lakes, IL and then to San Diego, CA to help out while her daughter was deployed. She was an amazing grandmother to both of her grandchildren, and she played an active role in both their lives. In 2017, she moved with her daughter's family to settle in Colorado.
She was loved dearly and was always there for her family. Donna will be remembered most for her selflessness, her wild stories, and her friendly demeanor. Donna was a cheerful woman who never met a stranger.
Donna is survived by her daughter (Kelly Hall Wurtenberg), son-in-law (John Wurtenberg III), grandchildren (Teagan Shiflett and John "Jack" Wurtenberg IV), mother (Betty Watkins), and siblings (Linda Watkins, Sue Brocato, Warren Watkins, and Doug Watkins).
