Donna Gail Lytton

07/30/1958 — 04/24/2008

From Richland, WA, US | Born in Little Rock, Arkansas

Donna Gail Lytton

Married at the early age of 17, her life started in Ellisford, WA with her sole mate, Steve, then continued until the birth of daughter, Stephanie, in Tonasket, WA. Shortly after, they moved to Chicago, IL where they continued their life for nine beautiful years, then moving to the Tri-Cities in 1989. Donna owned and operated a lawn care business for 12 years. She was the hardest working woman in the Tri-Cities.

Donna lived for her children, everyday, all day. Her grandchildren were the highlight of her life. She was her children's best friend and made sure they all knew how proud of them she was. Donna made people laugh everywhere she went. She was the most giving person we had ever known. She lived everyday for her soul mate, Steve, children and grandchildren. She lived her life everyday to the fullest.

Donna is survived by her husband of 32 years, Steve Lytton; her children, Brad, Jesse, Amy Lytton and Stephanie Henn; the sparkle of her eyes, 6 ½ grandchildren; all of her children's spouses; her parents, Earl and Janice Brown; her brother, Randy; sisters, Darla and Debbie; all her cherished nieces and nephews who meant so much; and many friends and people she befriended around the community and everywhere she went.

Our family would like to express our appreciation to ICU, Richland Fire and Ambulance team, Matthew and Susan Ward, Pastor David Parker, and Mason Pickett for all of their support and prayers.

A "Celebration of Life" memorial service will be held Monday, April 28, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. at Central United Protestant Church, 1124 Stevens Dr., Richland, WA 99354.

A reception for family and friends will be held at the church immediately following the service.

  • I was devastated to hear about the loss of your beloved wife, mother and grandmother. Words cannot express to you how sorry I am. Remember that no matter how sad the circumstances are at this moment in time, God promised that he would never leave you or forsake you, but that he will be with you always, even unto the end.

  • The Lyttons,

    I came to tri citys every summer when I was a kid. Donna took me in and took care of me like I was one of her own, she was always there for me no matter what I needed. She showed me how to work hard and push a mower with the best of them. I can’t believe she is gone, but I know she is in a better place. I will always have the memories of those summers at the boat races and long days of mowing, that is something her death can’t take from me. I love you and will miss you aunt donna. Love,

  • Donna had a loving heart and was always a part of our life as neighbors. She went out of her way to give me advice on my children and was generous with food from the garden or the beautiful flowers they cut from their yard.

    She loved her grandchildren when they would come to visit or welcomed a new birth and was proud to be a part of their lives. Donna was so proud of her children and their accomplishments

    With her lawn business, she touched many lives there making yards beautiful.

    We love you Donna and knew this was your temporary home and one day we will see you in heaven, so please know that we are glad you don’t have to suffer anymore.

  • I was so saddened to hear of the loss of such a special person. I always thought of Donna like a mom. If I needed advice when I was a teen mom I knew who I could call. She always supported me through anything. Anytime I would run into Donna she always had something nice to say. I don’t ever remember any negativity. She truly did live and do everything for others. Steve and family your loss is felt deeply and I mourn with you. Words cannot express the symapthy and sadness I have. May the happy and unforgetable memories of Mom live on forever. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May you find encouragement that mom is free from pain now and is at peace.

  • To the Lytton Family~

    I only met Donna once, going out on the boat with the family. She was very nice and a great hostess for the trip. I just want to let Amy and Brad know they are in my thoughts and prayers. I went through the same experience about 9 years ago, so I know what you are going through. Amy, you know where I work, NWO, so stop by if you need anything. Again, I am very sorry for your loss, and I will be thinking about you. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

  • Steve & Family,

    Jerry and I were saddened to read of Donna’s passing. It was not too long ago that we saw her and she was so excited and pleased that the car she had purchased belonged to Jerry. She always had a smile and when grooming our lawn, it was always done with special attention. Donna will be missed.
