  • Brett Harmer Posted June 14, 2018 12:28 PM

    Donna was my FleetManger at Maverick for 3yrs during my time in the Flatbed division. From the first time I met Donna her warmth personality and smile grabbed my attention. After our introduction I knew I had a new friend and what would become a great relationship with my FM. Donna truly cared for her driver’s and would go to bat for any of them.I do and will miss my conversations with Donna. Donna has left big shoes for the next FM at Maverick to fill. It will be hard to find someone with the same personality, compassion,and just the right amount of fire to motivate there drivers as she did. To all of Donna’s family and friends my heart breaks for you. I wish you the peace of Christ.Know Donna is watching all of you. I know I now have a new trucker Angel. My deepest sympathy for all especially her husband Charlie.

  • Mary K. Meacham Posted June 15, 2018 9:39 AM

    We will never understand why some are gone too soon when they had so much more to do in life. To Donna’s husband, Heather, Dustin, grandchildren, mom and dad – I am so, so sorry. I want to share how Donna helped me after Kyle’s (my son’s) death. She had the phone store. We had Kyle’s phone but not a charger I was determined to know if he texted anyone, called anyone the day he took his life. I went up to the store and Donna got it charged. Then, she shared the story of her brother with me. I had never known the meaning behind her license plate. We hugged, I cried and since then kept in contact with her. She became a supporter of our Miles for Kyle team, even coming to LR once to walk with us. She was so special.

  • Mary K. Meacham Posted June 15, 2018 9:42 AM

    Another Donna memory to share! She was the first student to ask if BHS could have a school sponsored, integrated prom. Jack Myers and I agreed it was a great idea! We had the first that year and it continues today. I will remember those dimples, her steadfast support and her belief that everyone could come together. My love to you all.

  • Sam Ray Hutchison Posted June 15, 2018 2:48 PM

    My favorite sister for 35 years. RIP big sister. Love you, miss you.

  • Vickie Nash Posted June 15, 2018 3:48 PM

    When you became a friend to Donna, she became your lifelong friend. I met her when she had the video store in Brinkley. We would have long talks, and she always made time for her friends. She loved my children, and they loved her! She will be greatly missed. Fly high, sweet friend! It was my pleasure to know you! I loved her!

  • John Bentley Posted June 15, 2018 8:49 PM

    You will be missed Donna! She had a great smile.

  • Cory & Dawn Wilcox Posted June 20, 2018 8:58 PM

    Donna was my FM for 3 yrs. And was me and my wife’s friend from day one when she started @ Maverick.
    There are no good words to describe the loss that anyone who knew her is feeling. She was the best!!!!
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to you Charlie and all of her family and friends.
