Donna J. Irion

Irion, Donna J.

Saginaw, Michigan

Our loving sister, aunt and dear friend was called home to be with her Lord on Tuesday, August 9, 2022. She was 91 years old. Donna Jean Irion was born on June 15, 1931 in Unionville to the late Maria (Bohn) and Herbert Irion. She attended Unionville High School, and enjoyed music and playing the trombone. She graduated in 1949, and willed her curiosity to the classes that followed her. Donna enjoyed many years on her parents farm in Unionville, working side by side with her father. She also worked in Bay City at one of the local banks. Donna attended the Moravian Church in Unionville, and lived in Unionville until her parents passed away. She was then cared for by her family and spent the last few years in Saginaw. Donna had a great love for cats, perhaps it was because of their curiosity.

She is survived by her sister-in-law: Ruth Irion; nieces and nephews: Patricia (Ivan) Forshee-Warman, Constance Martin, Terry Forshee, Lynelle (fiancĂ©, Shane Babcock) Forshee, Valerie (Wayne) Hogan and Alan Irion; great nieces and great nephews: Tessa Warman, Sarah (Mark) Atkins, Rebecca (Chris) Stewart, Rachel (Tony) DeHate, Terry Forshee,  Jessica Forshee, Devin (Kenya) Hogan and Kelsie Hogan; 10 great great-nieces and great great-nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Marilyn Forshee; and brother, Kenneth Irion.
