Donna Jean Thacker

Age 69, of Edgewood Acres in Sutton, WV passed away at 1:00 PM on Saturday, September 09, 2017 in St. Francis Hospital in Charleston following an extended illness.

She was born in Hurricane, WV on July 01, 1948 a daughter of the late Ira Roscoe Thacker and Ada Pauline Davis Thacker.

Her fun-loving nature and giving, generous spirit will be carried on by her three children: Richard Eugene Jeffers of Sutton, Leo “Eric” Arnold and wife, Leann, of Walkersville, WV and Casey Dawn Kerr of Charleston, WV; five grandchildren who dearly miss their Nanny: Sean David Arnold, Shae Nicole Arnold, Triston Lee Arnold, Catlynn Jade Pitts, and Jacob Lee Kerr; one brother, Billy Ray Thacker of Milton; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by five siblings: Irene Gibson, Bernard Thacker, Wesley Thacker, Helen Miller, and Linda White; several cousins, nieces and nephews; and her beloved dogs, Sheba and Lancer.

In her early years, Donna worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant. In later years, she was a loving and devoted homemaker, and a kind, compassionate caregiver. As a lifetime member of the NRA, she enjoyed target practice, and as a water enthusiast, she loved boating on Sutton Lake with family, friends and her Great Dane, Sheba. She was witty, funny and loved to laugh and have a good time.

Donna’s request for cremation has been honored and her family will have a private Celebration of Life Service at a later date.

Expressions of sympathy may be sent directly to Eric Arnold 727 Big Knawl Road, Walkersville, WV 26447.

The Pat Boyle Funeral Home and Cremation Service at 144 Hackers Creek Road in Jane Lew is honored and privileged to serve the family of Donna Jean Thacker.
