Donna Joy Curtis (Willis)

Donna Joy Curtis (Willis) was called to heaven on Sunday, November 28, 2021, with her daughters by her side. 

Donna was born on February 21, 1943, in Oakland, CA.  She raised three children, Darla Ford, Marla (Randy) Garcia, and Anthony (Miranda) Willis. She has eight grandchildren, Jessica, Ashleigh, Tyler, Nicole, Natasha, Easton, Blaine, and Brylee. She has two great grandchildren, Benjamin, and Gehrig. Donna has four surviving siblings, William (Carolyn) Willis, Wanda (James) Burrell, Martin (Isabel) Willis, and Stephan Willis. She is preceded in death by her parents, William and Martha Willis and brother, Gary Willis.

She was born in California and lived a majority of her life in Tri-Cities, WA.  She did return to California multiple times and cherished her memories there. Donna loved God, her grandchildren, children, family, friends, cars, long painted nails, diet coke, and flowers, in that particular order. 😊

She had a soft place in her heart for children. She was a foster parent, and a mother figure to many. If there was one thing in life she enjoyed most it was being a mother and grandmother. She will always be remembered for her sense of humor and love for God.

Donna had a taste for adventure, travel, road trips, and was very independent. 

We love her dearly and we will miss her each and every day! We are thankful for the multitude of fond memories. We were blessed to have her in our lives and are comforted to know she rests in the loving arms of our Lord, Jesus Christ. 

A celebration of life/funeral service will be held on, December 10, 2021, at Einan’s at Sunset Event Center starting at 12:00 pm. Flowers may be sent to 915 By-Pass Hwy, Richland WA 99352.

  • I will always remember all the fun times. Going sledding with her and Uncle Marty. Her and Jim showing up at Christmas with a car full of toys for Sheri and I. When I found out about the twins I was prepared to be very jealous. Then she showed up with them it was love at first sight. Marla mine and Darla Sheri’s. She help me when I needed it most. I will never forget the fun this family had together.

  • I have so many fond memories of Donna, my cheer mom. Her home was always welcoming, her kitchen always busy and her laughter always contagious. What I love most is that she has been a forever friend…across the years and miles, time and distance do not exist. Just step through the door and you’re home and you are loved. Be at peace my friend.
