Donna S. Burkey
Donna was born August 27th, 1951, in Ada, OK, and Passed in Peace in the comforts of her home April 30th, 2021, at the age of 69. She is preceded in death by her parents, Don & Wanda Summers, and her brother Neal Summers.
Donna was the loving wife to Arthur A. “Skip” Burkey, mother to Dane & Zach Burkey, mother-in-law to Jynnae Burkey, & grandmother to Alaric A. Burkey & Claire A. Burkey. She is further survived by two sisters, Mitzi Flanagan & Mandi Henry, and two brothers, Mark Summers and Noel Summers. Her brothers and sisters, along with their loving husbands, wives, and children have surrounded Donna with a large and loving family that she cherished and will miss her dearly.
Donna achieved her Master’s in Education. She worked hard throughout her career as a 3rd grade teacher until retirement, making sure her students were prepared and successful.
She loved watching college sports, especially OU football, women’s softball, wrestling and boxing. She had the greenest of thumbs, and the most beautiful flower beds that give us all something to enjoy when sitting outside remembering this special lady.
Donna would want her friends and family to know how special they all are to her, and to live their lives through Christ so that we can all be together again in heaven. She has left behind a few of her favorite sayings that have stayed with our family for generations:
Rest in Peace, Donna Sue. We will all be together again soon.
