She was one of three children born to Roy and Wilma Scheuermann. Donna Rae attended school at a catholic parochial school in Grand Junction, IA. She was a pioneer student; in the early 1950s she was one of the first students to be mainstreamed into the classroom. At home on the family farm, she accompanied her father into the fields and enjoyed cows and other farm animals. She loved riding a bicycle and was a great playmate to her four nieces and a nephew. She enjoyed singing old songs and Christmas Eve services at the Cooper Methodist Church. Donna moved away from her Jefferson family home into New Hope Village at Carroll, Iowa where she made friends. Donna frequently traveled with her sister Linda Schaffer and sister-in-law, (late) Martha Scheuermann on several sister trips. In 2018 Donna moved from Iowa to St. Cloud, Minnesota and later resided at Foster 5 in Sauk Rapids Minnesota where she made friends. Especially important to her, was her friend, Mary, and all the staff at Foster 5. Late in Donna’s life she enjoyed Vikings football games, rides in the van, beer, the family dogs, and babies. Despite the challenges she saw in life, Donna was loving, kind and unapologetically genuine. Donna is preceded in death by her parents, Roy and Wilma Scheuermann, her brother Darrell Scheuermann and her sister-in-law Martha Scheuermann. Donna is survived by her sister Linda Schaffer, brother-in-law Richard Schaffer, Niece Melynda Harjes (Daniel), Nephew Troy Scheuermann (Ralinda), Niece Traci Houts (Will), Niece Sonya Jacobs (Joel), several great nieces/nephews, great-great nieces and nephew and many cousins.
