Obituary for Donna L. Carlman

Donna L. Carlman Born August 23, 1926 to Fay and Hazel Richards; went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Jack, her brothers Edward, Monte, Jim, and Ben, and her grandson, Caleb. She is survived by her sisters Barbara Kanen and Kathleen Nyholm, 4 children, Stephen (Deb) Carlman, Dan Carlman, Gail (Gary) Schoolland, and Laura (Jim) Ungersma, 19 grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren. Mom was born in Vancouver, Washington and grew up near Hockinson, where she spent many hours playing in Salmon Creek with her siblings and enjoying homemade music in the evenings. She attended WSC (now WSU) and then worked at Barnes Hospital. She married Jack Carlman on May 25, 1952. Jack was in the Air Force, so they traveled to various military assignments, building and raising a close and loving family along the way. In 1967, they settled in Eatonville, on 32 acres, where they spent the next 33 years. Mom was good at so many things: gardening, canning, tole painting, calligraphy, sewing, quilting She was a servant, content to be working in the background, making gifts to give away or bringing meals to shut-ins. In 2000 Mom and Dad moved to Lakewood and then to Lynden in 2005 to be nearer their daughters. Mom had a strong faith in God, and loved to be in His Word and with His people. Her greatest desire was that all of her children and grandchildren would know the Lord and serve Him, and she prayed for all of us faithfully.
