Des Moines - Doneta Arlene McVey 67 of Des Moines

Doneta passed away in her sleep early in the morning Thursday, August 9 after a long struggle due to an undiagnosed deteriorating condition.

Doneta was born November 30th, 1950 alongside her twin brother. In her adult life she spent many years working in hospitality for many hotels in the Des Moines area. She was known for her quiet nature who enjoyed solitude and the company of a few close friends and family. She is remembered for her artistic and gardening skills, things which brought her the most joy in life. She also enjoyed reminiscing about simpler life in the past and memories antiques would give her.

She is survived by her sons Edward McVey and Michael McVey, her sisters JoAnn Prock and Lorraine Payton as well as 2 grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents Opal Fay and Joseph Andrew Brockman, her sisters Verna Morrissey and Elaine Brockman, and her brothers Donald Brockman, Dale Brockman and Merle Brockman.

A celebration of life will be scheduled and announced at a later date.
