Donna LaVerne Watson Anderson, 63, died unexpectedly at her home in Kingman, Arizona, on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

Donna was born in Phoenix, Arizona on Nov. 13, 1955 to George W. and Roberta A. Watson. She grew up in Gila Bend and was a long-time resident of Kingman.

Donna earned her accounting degree in 2003, though she had been a bookkeeper for many years. Donna was a wonderful mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and a good friend to many. She would help anyone who was in need. She cared for her sister during an extended illness and took care of her invalid mother for years, until her passing. She could do anything she set her mind to and do it exceptionally well, including sewing, home remodeling, working on vehicles, building structures, hunting, fishing, and was a great cook. Her favorite thing to do was be with family. Donna had a great sense of humor and saw the upside of life. She met the hardships in life head on. She was the "go-to" person in her family. Donna was beloved by all who knew her and will be sorely missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her children; Christian Blanchard and her husband, Kevin, Brett Anderson and his wife, Karleen, Danae Sprouse and her husband, Ryan, siblings; Shari and Warren Watson, her grandchildren; Kashmeer Varney, Kendall Witte, Hayden Anderson, Andy Anderson, Kyla Anderson, Corrine Anderson, Tristan Anderson, Sarah Prosser, Amber Prosser, Harper Sprouse, and great-grandson; Brayson Hardy. She was preceded in death by her parents and son; Andy E. Anderson.

A celebration of her life will be held at 11 a.m. May 11 at Hampton Inn, 1791 Sycamore Ave. in Kingman, Arizona.
