Donna J. Spande

Donna J. Spande, age 52, of Canton, Minn., formerly a longtime Winona, Minn. resident, died Friday, May 2, 2014 in her dream home following a two year battle with cancer.

Donna was born December 4, 1961 in Winona, Minn. to John and Joyce (Schneider) Boyle. She attended Cotter High School and graduated from Winona Senior High in 1980. She worked in purchasing at Benchmark Electronics for most of her career before moving on to Riverstar and eventually Riverside as a program manager.

On July 4, 2013 she married her love, Mark Spande, at the Scheie Lutheran Church in rural Mabel, Minn.

Donna was an avid reader, a lover of gardening and nature, of laughing with and spending time with her friends and family. She was a great supporter to all of those she cared about and everything Donna did, she did

with her face turned toward the sun.

Donna is survived by her husband Mark of Canton; her parents John and Joyce Boyle of Winona; daughter Kelly Jo Melody Carlson of Winona; step-daughter Katy Carlson of San Diego, Calif.; two sisters, Linda Boyle of LaCrosse, Wis., and Kathy (Dan) Kujak of Winona; a brother David Boyle of Winona; and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her grandparents.
