Seefeld, Donna A. (3 JUN 1934 – 11 NOV 2014)

Donna Ann Bardell was born on June 3, 1934, in the town of York, to Sadie C. (nee Garbisch) and Clinton W. Bardell. She was raised on the family farm and received her education at Pleasant View School and graduated from Spencer High School in 1952. Donna married Neil W. Seefeld on July 3, 1954, at the Methodist church in Spencer. They later divorced. She worked all of her life on the family farm, and also worked at Land O' Lakes in Spencer for 30 years. After retiring from Land O' Lakes in 1995, Donna continued to work on the farm with her son, Richard, until the time of her death. She had many interests, but especially loved spending time with her children and grandchildren, puzzles, crocheting and reading.

Donna will be dearly missed by her children, Richard N. (Joyce) Seefeld, Loyal, Debra (Craig) Hamilton, Baraboo, and Diana L. Lynn, Eau Claire; nine grandchildren, Chad (Carissa) Schmidt, Corey Schmidt, Daniel Hamilton, Aaron Hamilton, Mara Seefeld, Brittany Seefeld, Richard Seefeld, Maggie Seefeld and Kendra Seefeld; two great-grandchildren, Rylie Schmidt and Carson Schmidt; her niece, Linda; her nephew, Daniel; and other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Eugene Bardell and two in infancy; and her grandson, Clinton R. Hamilton.
