Donna S. Runels
Former longtime Kingman resident Donna S. Runels passed away on Feb. 25, 2009, at her new home in Candia, N.H.
She was born to Ernest and Gladys Ernhart in South Bend, Ind., but lived more than 25 years in Arizona, 17 of them in Kingman. She worked more than 29 years in the health food field and helped countless people to live healthier lives. She was the manager of the Natural Planet Health Food Store in Kingman until her retirement in 2007. She then moved to New Hampshire to be with family in June of 2008.
Donna loved riding motorcycles, canoeing, camping, fishing and spending time outdoors.
She is survived by her husband and soulmate of 33 years, Bill Runels; a daughter, Deborah Lindfors; a daughter-in-law, Jeanette Turner; a granddaughter, Tara Lindfors and great-grandson Jared Lindfors of New Hampshire; a sister, Dee Sykes of Texas; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Donna also leaves behind many dear friends around the country and especially the people she worked and played with in Kingman. Everyone who knew her couldn't help but love and admire her for her kindness, strength and loyalty. She was one of a kind.
A private family gathering is scheduled for later this spring in New Hampshire.
