Obituary for Donna Lande

Donna Lande, age 78, of Story City, IA and formerly of Thompson, IA, passed away peacefully at Israel Family Hospice House in Ames on Wednesday, September 4, 2019.
Donna Jean Lande was born on August 14, 1941, to Arnold and Ida (Asmus) Lande. She graduated from Buffalo Center High School in 1959.
Donna of Story City, Iowa, (formerly of Thompson, IA) passed away peacefully at the Israel Hospice House in Ames on September 4, 2019. Following graduation, she began working at the Buffalo Center Hospital. The highlight of her day was the time she spent in the maternity ward. She had a natural gift for helping mother and baby. When the hospital closed in 1982, she accepted the position of head cook at the Thompson Community School until her retirement. She loved conversing with the kids going through the lunch line; she was well known for her cinnamon rolls served with chili. Donna was a member of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Buffalo Center.
Donna's talent and meticulous nature was evident in her many hobbies: hardanger, crocheting, beading, beautiful flower gardens, and many others. Family looked forward to the wonderful dishes she prepared. She was known for her decorated cakes and cookies. Having grown up on a farm, she had a love for animals. Her beloved Holly, a miniature schnauzer, was her constant companion.
Some of the people she cherished most in her life were her niece Brooke and nephews, Adam & Matt, along with her great-nieces and nephews. They have always been the light of her life; she was always quick to share pictures and stories about them.
She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Lowell and Beci Lande of Story City; niece Brooke (Shannon) Cates of Bell Buckle, TN; nephew Adam (Jayne) Lande of Story City; nephew Matt (Cris) Lande of Boone. Great nieces and nephews Adriana and Ryker Cates, Kale, Kamryn, and Karsyn Lande; Tate and Logan Lande; Kelsey (Justin) Savits, Cole and Clay Stumbo. She is also survived by many cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
