ODESSA LaDonna Lea Walters, 43, "The best daughter a mother could ever have," passed away Friday, November 16, 2012 in Odessa.|
She was born December 5, 1968 in Odessa, Texas to Dale and Carla Walters, and was a 1987 graduate of Odessa High School.
LaDonna worked as a dispatcher for the Odessa Police Department, as a nail tech, an answering service operator and a customer service representative for Tel Vista. For the past two years she was an independent consultant for Scentsy.
As a child of a pipeliner she lived in numerous states. Although LaDonna was confined to a wheelchair, she was a free spirited person. She was an excellent cook and drove herself wherever she wanted to go. Her handicap was never her concern; it was the needs of her family and friends that always came first. LaDonna knew no stranger; she had the gift to gab!
