Born on August 7, 1938 in Beiseker, AB, the youngest daughter of Andrew and Elizabeth Uffelman. After graduationg from school, she attended Henderson Secretarial School in Calgary.

She served the church council of Lethbridge First Baptist for a number of years. She was the co-captain of the churchs prayer chain. Glynn, Donalda and their boys lived in a number of Alberta communities; Calgary, Wainwright, Edmonton, Lethbridge, (living here twice), and Canmore where Donalda & Glynn were owners / operators of the Cee-Der Chalets in Harvie Heights for 9 years. Donaldas spiritual gift was hospitality, so this allowed her to serve people through the Chalets.

She spent a lot of time studying the Bible, and both she and Glynn were actively involved in the church Bible study. She enjoyed Christmas and hosting the Christmas potluck for many years. The family would like to thank the doctors and staff of the intensive care unit at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital, for their wonderful care and attention. Donalda is survived by her brother, 3 sisters, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families.
