A celebration of life service will be held for Donna Sue Driggers, 74, of The Colony, Texas, Saturday, Aug. 29, at 11:30 a.m. at Alto Missionary Baptist Church in Alto with Brothers Phil Mitchell and Bruce Robinson officiating.
Donna Sue Driggers was called home to hHeaven by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Monday, April 6. She passed away peacefully in her home, with her loving family beside her. Donna was born on Nov. 9, 1945, in Jacksonville, Texas. She grew up in the small East Texas town of Wells.
Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband of 45 years, Bill Driggers. She was an amazing mother to her two sons, Clay Johnson of Chico, Texas, and Chris Johnson and wife Cindy of Rusk, Texas; her daughters Amanda Driggers of Plano, Texas, and Debbie Falls of Angwin, Calif. She was a compassionate and caring grandmother to her seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren -- Colten Johnson, wife Tabitha and children, Reese Rousseau, Kenslee and Greysen Johnson of Melissa, Texas; Cody Johnson of Fort Worth, Texas, and children, Presley and Cates; Tyler Falls of Portland, Ore.; Austen Falls of Monterey, Calif.; and Clint Johnson and wife Anna Lisa of Plano, Texas. Donna is survived by her brother, Carol Wilbert Smith and wife Sandra of Forest, Texas; along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Donna’s pride and joy was her family. She called them her jewels. Her love ran deep and wide for everyone in her life.
The family would like to thank all of those that have prayed so diligently for Donna and her family for these last four years while she battled MDS and later AML. We would also like to thank Dr. Collins, his staff, the clinic and all of those that had any part of her care at UT Southwestern.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to UT Southwestern Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. We pray that treatments will be discovered to heal those suffering from cancer.
