Obituary for Donnalene Wilson

Donnalene “DJ” Wilson, 82 of Richland Center, died Thursday February 6, 2020 at the UW Hospital in Madison following a brief illness.

Donnalene was born in Richland County, WI in 1938. She lived, worked and enjoyed her entire life in Richland County. Donnalene was a strong, independent and faithful woman. She was devoted to her faith in god, her children, her grandchildren, her great grandchildrenand her friends. Known to many as DJ, she loved to garden, bird watch and be out in nature. The “DJ bird watching gene” made its way to her daughter and grandson. She had a passion for making rugs and an even bigger passion of locating and sourcing materialsfor those rugs. One of the greatest gifts you could receive in life was a Donnalene Wilson rug, as many of her children, grandchildren, family and friends would testify to. Donnalene became a widow at an early age, but forged ahead in the raising of her3 wonderful children, Joyce, Karlene and Jimmie. Donnalene’s passion for the outdoors and for providing for her family was evident by the garden she grew each season and the wonderful vegetables she would preserve for use all year long. For much of Donnalene’slife, “farm life” was her life even though she worked other jobs off the farm. Later in life, DJ moved to Richland Center and found “City Life” had some perks as well. The stores and restaurants were closer and the Senior Center provided a nice venue forwalking and fellowship. Donnalene was a very humble lady, too humble to understand all of the lives she impacted over her years on this earth. Every single person who knew Donnalene is a better human being because of that opportunity.
