Donna Elizabeth Carnes Tolle born on November 5, 1946 in Floresville, TX left this earth on July 19, 2014 after a long term illness surrounded and cared for by her family and staff at Detar Hospital. Preceeded in death her parents, Gussie and David Donaldson Carnes Sr. and her siblings, David Donaldson Carnes Jr. and Peggy Carnes Bowling. She is survived by her husband Mark Tolle of 22 years, sister Diana Carnes Schafer, and children Judy and husband Tilman Bryant, David Barth and wife Catherine, Leslie Anne Jensen, and Dustin and wife Michelle Ferguson. She is also survived by 5 grandchildren Lance Barfield, Connor Barth, Madeleine Barth, Hailey Bryant, and Kayla Ferguson. Donna lived life, like it was worth living. Humble, down to earth, appreciative of the small things, she had a humorous take on life, finding sarcastic humor in just about any situation. She loved traveling around the world with her sister Diana. She was full of life and a survivor, who beat the odds against her illness twice, giving herself an additional 4 years of life. She was fortunate to be able to spend her last several days of her life with her family and beloved pets, Lucy and Lizzie. She enjoyed family dinners, a birthday party, jokes and shopping.
