She graduated from Fort Atkinson High School in 1953. Donna married Melvin Mueller on October 12, 1957 at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Fort Atkinson. She was a member of St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church for many years and was a member of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jefferson at the time of her death.
