Donna Ann Spickler, 84, of Lewistown, passed away Monday, September 20, 2021, at the home of her daughter, Deb.

Born on January 20, 1937, in Lewistown, she was the daughter of the late Howard L. Gregg and Blanche F. (Lansberry) Gregg-Shields.

In addition to her parents, Donna was preceded in death by her husband, Ray N. Spickler, whom she married August 6, 1954; daughter, Donna D. Pandel; brother, Howard L. Gregg; and son-in-law, Scott A. Foltz.

She is survived by two daughters, Sue A. Foltz, and Deborah K. Havice and her husband, Christopher J., both of Lewistown; and her son-in-law, Rodger E. Pandel, of Lewistown. She had 10 grandchildren: Jennifer and Shane Kerstetter, Randy and Kristin Foltz, April Davis, Michael and Amanda Foltz, Matthew, and Stephanie Foltz, Stefen Pandel, Jordan and Chad Colyer, Claire and Thomas Brannan, Jonathan and Leticia Foltz, and Paige Havice; and 16 great-grandchildren: Cameron, Whitney, Blake, Ethan, Kendra, Brianna, Zoey, Taylor, Carly, Lucas, Raegan, Cooper, Wyatt, Mattie, Alexandria, and Carter.

Donna was a Yeagertown High School graduate, Class of 1954. She worked as a nurse’s aide at the County Home for several years prior to owning and operating Spickler’s Real Estate and Rentals and Spickler’s Milk and Ice Hauling alongside her husband, Ray, for over 40 years.

Donna was a member of the Calvary Bible Church and Prayer Garden and was a member of the Fort Granville Grange.

Donna loved collecting cow figurines, Native American Art, and listening to the American southern gospel vocal group, Gaithers. She enjoyed working outside and tending to her flower beds. Donna looked forward to and loved family vacations in Ocean City, Maryland. A lifelong animal lover you would always find her petting a dog at her daughter’s house. You could hear laughter from outside her home when the family gathered for game nights at her house. Donna was known for making the best fudge around and if you were lucky enough to get some you always wanted more. The family was always first in her heart, and she was loved and admired by many.

The family would like to acknowledge her caretakers, Diane, Dorothy, and Peggy for taking care of our mom and meme for the past several years and loving her as you would your own. We would also like to acknowledge Hospice the Bridge, specifically Jeff, for their compassion and outstanding care during this difficult time.

Services and Interment will be private and at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements are under the care of Hoenstine Funeral Home, 75 Logan St., Lewistown.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in loving memory to the Calvary Bible Prayer Garden or ROFF.
