OMAHA, Nebraska - Donald D. Mahrt, age 91. Don went home to be with the Lord on September 18, 2021.
His life embodied Colossians 3:23-24. "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
Don was born in Correctionville, IA in 1930 to William and Genevieve Mahrt. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. He married his loving wife Ada in 1952. He worked for 31 years at A.T.&T. and at First Data for 10 years. He enjoyed watching sports and attending Husker football and College World Series games. Although, his greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren.
