Donna Lynn King

Nov. 15, 1960 - June 8, 2024

It is with beyond sadness in our hearts, that our family announces the sudden and unexpected loss of daughter and sister, 63 year old Donna Lynn King (formally Kraft) of Tekoa, Wash., on June 8, 2024. Born November 15, 1960, widow of husband Duane King. Donna is survived by her mother, Janice Kraft of Mishawaka, Ind., sisters, Debbie Bussert of Cumming, Geo., Denise Kraft of Pompano Beach Flo., Dawn Kraft of Syracuse Ind., brother, Doug Kraft of Los Angeles, Calif., and stepson Michael King of Elkhart, Ind. Donna also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Donna was a very loving, caring and giving person that had a heart big enough for all, including her beloved dog Lucy. Donna loved many genres of sports, pro and college from the Green Bay Packers to Gonzaga basketball to her beloved University of Notre Dame. Growing up in South Bend and Elkhart IN (Elkhart Memorial High School), and being the daughter of our late father, Notre Dame sportswriter, Dennis Kraft, Donna was a dedicated Notre Dame football fan who looked forward to watching with our family every season, cheering for every touchdown, and letting us know how she really felt about the ref's bad calls. Those and so many more moments with Donna, our family will always treasure.

She will be truly missed by all family, friends, and by anyone who was fortunate enough to have met her. Donna, you will forever be in God's arms and forever in our hearts.
