Donna L. Nagy, sister to Thomas Sawyer (Dresbach), passed away peacefully Aug 29, 2021. She was born to Raymond and Mary Sawyer on June 29, 1937, in West Allis, WI. Donna and her mother Mary, moved to LaCrosse in 1995 to be closer to Tom and his family. Together they had great adventures and much laughter.
Donna worked as a legal secretary in the Milwaukee area for many years. She carried her meticulous file-keeping skills into her personal life. It was a running joke between sister and brother and as only a younger brother could do, he often teased her about not being able to find this or that document that she had given him. She was an avid reader and was never without a book or two in progress. Due to the great variety of subjects she read, she was well versed in many interesting topics. In LaCrosse, Donna was employed by Reinhart Foods and could be found distributing food samples at Sam’s Club. She was known to her co-workers as a woman with a great sense of humor.
Donna was preceded in death by her father and mother, her son Raymond Nagy, and her sister Patricia Mizell.
She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law Tom & Becky Sawyer, three grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews around the country.
The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the staff of Springbrook Village La Crescent; Your compassionate care of Donna and us filled the last days of her life with peace and love.
Donna will be interned at the Columbarium and Prayer Gardens of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Mormon Coulee Road. Due to the upswing of local COVID 19 cases there will be no formal gathering.
Memorials may be given to Springbrook Village, 1384 Count Road 25 La Crescent MN 55947
