Donna Jean Feichtner, 78, of Willard, Ohio passed away on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at Grady Memorial Hospital in Delaware, Ohio. She was born on October 27, 1942 in Norwalk, Ohio to the late Harold Chaffee and Mildred (Deitrick) Chaffee Kearney.

A 1960 graduate of Norwalk High School, Donna went on to receive her Associates Degree from Oberlin College. She went on to work for the Huron County Courthouse for Judge Russell I. Antrim as his clerk. Donna would later go on to work for Pioneer Rubber in Willard and Dr. Emery and Dr. Rosso. Her favorite title would become farmwife, homemaker, and mom when she married the love of her life, John Feichtner on April 23, 1966. She loved taking meals to the field and helping in any way she could around the farm. Donna enjoyed sewing, cooking and cleaning but most of all, she loved spending time with her family and friends. She was a longtime member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Willard.

I am so sorry for your loss. My sister was married to Donna' brother Ted. We spent many family events together . I remember when John and Donna invited the whole 5th grade to their farm. It was so kind of them to share the farm with those kids. My prayers are with your whole family at this tragic time.

Donna was my friend growing up on Marshall Street and although we did not stay in touch it I remember her fondly. Last time we saw each other was at the fair 2014 and enjoyed visiting with her at the Cattlemen's tent where John was cooking steaks and we certainly did enjoy the steak that John cooked. This is a great loss to you family along with the death of John in the spring, our thought and prayers are with you all.
