OSCEOLA - Donna B. Moran, 84, of Osceola, passed away at 3:00 p.m. Sunday (May 5, 2013) at the Hospice House in South Bend, of natural causes. She was born Oct. 27, 1928 in Mishawaka to Robert & Isabel (Ward) Oakley. On May 17, 1952 in Osceola she married Richard "Dick" W. Moran. He preceded her in death on Jan. 16, 2010 in Osceola.

Donna was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Osceola American Legion and the Osceola United Methodist Church. She loved canning vegetables, cooking, sewing, crocheting, watching the birds and working in her flower garden. Donna was always concerned about other people more than herself. When it came to TV she really enjoyed the Food Channel, Keeping up Appearances on Saturday night and Everybody Loves Raymond. Sunday night was always popcorn night. She absolutely loved fishing with her husband Dick and spending time at Pine Lake, which was their paradise getaway. I, Terry Moran, want to thank my brother Dan, my best friend, my hero, who took care of Mom for the past 3.5 years. Dan and I both loved Mom so very much. She taught us a lot in life and took wonderful care of us. Dan was her caregiver and loving son. I am forever grateful to my brother Dan. Visitation for family and friends will be from 4-7 p.m. Thurs. at Zimmerman-Inman Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Fri. (May 10, 2013) at the funeral home.
