Donna Sandberg Cook passed away peacefully June 18, 2013 at the age of 86. Donna was born January 1, 1927 in Grantsville, UT to Susan Jane Hammond and Daniel Swen Sandberg. She was the youngest of seven children, all of whom preceded her in death. She was married in the Logan, Utah Temple to Terrance LeRoy (Roy) Cook. They spent more than 60 years together until Roy's death in February 2012. They are now reunited eternally after being separated for a long eighteen months.
Donna was a hard worker. During WWII she worked at the Tooele Army Depot alongside Italian prisoners of war. She also spent 20 years working as a bookkeeper at Beehive Appliance in Salt Lake City.
Donna loved to can fruit, quilt, and work in the yard. Roy and Donna worked tirelessly in the church doing humanitarian aid, genealogy, and temple work. They also served a three year mission, assigned to the member locator department at church headquarters. She served in the Stake Relief Society, as Ward Relief Society President, and Primary President. She was a member of the DUP.
Family meant everything to Roy and Donna. She is survived by daughter Kathleen Loewy of Cottonwood Heights, son Dan (Mareen) of Saint George, and Janeen (Craig) Gaisford of Cottonwood Heights.
