Donna Lyn Kotlan

1968 - 2014

Donna Lyn Kotlan, 45, formerly of Kenosha, late of Elkhorn, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, May 20, 2014, at Wheaton Franciscan Cancer Care Center Racine, after a long and courageous battle with melanoma.

Donna was born in Kenosha on Aug. 30, 1968, to Donald and Joan (Walker) Benning. She was educated in the schools of Kenosha, graduating in 1986 from Bradford High School. She went on to earn both a bachelors and masters degree in business. She was last employed in the Human Resource Department at Iseli in Walworth, Wis.

Donna married Edward Kotlan on April 5, 2007. In addition to her husband she is survived by her son, Alexander Jaden Kotlan; her parents, Donald and Joan Benning; and her sister, Janice (Brian) Rouse. She is further survived by many loving nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Donna was a kind, generous, fun-loving woman and will be sorely missed by all who were privileged to know her. She loved swimming, water skiing and at one time was a personal trainer and fitness guru.

Funeral Services for Donna will be held on Sunday, May 25, at 3 p.m. at the Bruch Funeral Home. Visitation will be held on Sunday afternoon from 1 p.m. until the time of service. In lieu of flowers, memorials would be greatly appreciated to the Donna Benning Kotlan Memorial Fund to help with medical expenses. Donations may be sent to the Peoples Bank in Elkhorn.

The family would like to express their thanks to the Wheaton Franciscan Cancer Center Staff and especially to Dr. Ryan Engel for their kind and compassionate care given to Donna.
