In Memory of Donna Ensley
Donna Ensley 1944 - 2022
In loving memory of Donna Kay Ensley, who passed away unexpectedly on Aug. 27, 2022. Donna was born June 10, 1944 in Tempe, Arizona to Carl and Edna Carrell.
From Tempe, her family moved to Visalia, California where she was raised in the San Joaquin Valley. After high school, she worked for North American Aviation in Downey, California where she met Bill Ensley for the first time. Fast forward 20 years and life happened, and they got reacquainted and eventually married. In 1993, they both retired and moved to Lake Havasu City. Both Donna and Bill were involved with many local service organizations and car clubs such as OTHG and Havasu Deuces. Donna was very passionate about helping people and was an excellent "life coach". She was a special friend and mentor to many and gave direction and encouragement to all that met her. Her infectious smile would light up any room she chose to enter. Donna was truly an amazing woman who lived life with grace and dignity. Those who knew her cherished her friendship and she will be deeply missed. Donna is survived by her husband Bill Ensley, sister and brother-in-law Darrell and Barbara Biddy from California and her two cherished fur babies, Lucy and Molly.
A celebration of Donnas' life will be held Oct. 8, 2022 in Lake Havasu City. For more information and to RSVP, please call Claudette Raczuk at 928-854-6319 or 928-706-0197.
