OBITUARY ~ DONELLA JEAN (GERMAN) CREVELING
August 29, 1927 ~ June 02, 2016

Donella Jean (German) Creveling was born August 29, 1927 to Clyde Leroy German and Florence (Nobles) German in rural Ellston, Iowa. Donella attended school in Ellston and graduated from Ellston High School in 1944. While attending school, Donella met her best friend, Ray “Lee” Creveling, who she later was united in marriage to on August 30, 1944.

Donella and Lee made their home on a farm outside of Ellston and celebrated many joys in their 65 years of marriage. Among those joys were the births of their two sons, Ronald Lee in 1952 and Kevin K. in 1958. Donella was a farm wife and helped Lee through the years in raising their family and with all aspects of the farm. Another joy later in Donella’s life was the birth of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She always enjoyed cooking and baking over the years to feed the growing grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Although Ellston was her home, as a past time Donella enjoyed traveling the country and seeing new places and making new friends. She and Lee traveled to many places during their married life and enjoyed wintering in Las Vegas. Donella made her final journey to her eternal resting place when she passed away on June 2, 2016 at the Clearview Nursing Home in Mount Ayr.
