Donna Louise Bush Carle

NOVEMBER 22, 1943 – FEBRUARY 3, 2019

Donna Carle, 75, passed peacefully early in the morning on February 3, 2019, at Hudson Memorial Nursing Home after a long battle with vascular dementia. She was born November 22, 1943, in El Dorado, AR to Nathaniel Clyde and Eradelle Chandler Bush. Donna graduated from El Dorado High School in 1961 and from Southern Arkansas University in 1965 with a BSE.

Donna lived a life of service, working as a teacher and at the Arkansas Department of Human Services as fraud investigator, case manager, and rehab counselor. Donna volunteered much of her extra time to her beloved church and other organizations. Her family knows she was welcomed into heaven with the words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant!"

She will be remembered as a gracious, loving, generous, intelligent, accomplished, determined, hard-working, Christian woman. Donna dearly loved her children and family.

I will make every effort to attend the fall reunion.

Retired from Arkansas Dept of Heath & Human Services and Arkansas Teachers Retirement.

I am moving Mother's Day back home to El Dorado.
I have been in Fayetteville for almost 2 yrs. Fayetteville is a very nice place to live, but I would have enjoyed it a bit more, when younger. My daughter and her husband will be relocating in August and I had told when I moved up here, that I would help out with my little grandson, (who was newborn at that time) untill my son-in-law completed his MFA. He receives it today.
I look forward to being back home.
