August 17, 1950 — January 1, 2024

Donna Marie Carr, age 73, of Garnett, Kansas, passed away on Monday, January 1, 2024, at her home, surrounded by family.

She was born on August 17, 1950, in Ottawa, Kansas, the daughter of Matthew J. and Irene B. (Pickert) Feuerborn.

Donna attended school at Holy Angels and graduated from Garnett High School with the class of 1968. After high school, Donna was united in marriage on September 20, 1969 to J.D. Carr. This union was blessed with six children.

She was always too busy working and raising her kids and wonderful family to have too many hobbies. She loved her flowers and gardening, always had the house surrounded with flowers. Donna loved seeing and talking with people. A big event everyday was cocktail hour where she and J.D. would sit on their front porch and visit with many friends and passerbys who would stop and sit. She was a cook and enjoyed baking where her specialty was her "magic bread". Donna was always the rock and level head in the marriage where she was supportive, or at least indulged, most of her husband's crazy ideas.

Donna worked at Hotel Cafe in the 1960's, during high school and Hallmark Cards in Lawrence after graduation. She also worked at Pioneer Room in Garnett, as well as many other restaurants. Dillons Bakery for 9 years in Dodge City and Olathe. Donna and J.D. bought and managed Tradewinds Bar and Grill in Garnett for 16 years. She retired in 2016, but couldn't stand being idle so she started working part time at St. Rose School in Garnett as a janitor and then a cook until her passing. She loved working at the school being with the kids where she would make extra efforts to see that they were happy and well fed.

Some of Donna's favorite times were Halloween and Christmas. She was always excited getting ready for the costume parties at Tradewinds. She and Lois would get dressed up to go out trick or drinking.
She had a passion for buying Christmas gifts for the family and the big family Christmas get-togethers, as well as Thanksgiving dinner with all the nieces, nephews, cousins, and all the other relatives.
