Donna Louise Blackmore Donaldson
She was born Donna Louise Blackmore on January 6, 1959 at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. She spent most of her life in Colorado and the last nine years in Estes Park. She was integral in the development and management of the Lazy R Cottages. More importantly, she was able to take an active part in raising her beloved grandchildren.
Louise is predeceased by her father Barney Douglas Blackmore, her husband Leroy Donaldson and her grandson Dustin Jett.
Louise is survived by her children, Jerry Blackmore and Lindsay Lamson, Sharon DelaRosa, Laura Hibbert and Christopher Hibbert, Christopher Donaldson and Ivy Donaldson; her grandchildren: Sydnie, Jeana, Sierra, Christian, Claire, Zachary, Jayden, Lainey, Angelina, Adrian and Treyton; her mother Mary Rose Young, her sister and brothers: Donna Lee (Louise’ twin sister), Danny, Perfidia, Buck, Klay (deceased), Billy (deceased), Bobbie, Barbara, Marvin, Geneva, Thomas and Gail; many nieces and nephews. Her cherished beagles Bailey and Bella.
Louise will always be remembered as a special person; everyones “MOM” who helped others in need. She asked nothing for herself, but always gave everything to others. She was an avid sports fan. The Denver Broncos and the Colorado Mammoths have lost one of their greatest supporters.
