Donna Louise (Lundell) Searight

Donna Louise (Lundell) Searight, age 57, of Bellevue, passed away peacefully at her home in Bellevue early Monday morning, June 15, 2015 after a tiresome battle with Pancreatitis and Diabetes.

She was born April 7, 1958 in Norwalk to the late Donald Platt Lundell and Marjorie Louise (Witter) Lundell.

Donna was outgoing and cheerful and was a 1976 Western Reserve graduate, admired by many for energetic youthful soul. She was passionate for animals throughout her life. She bred, trained and cared for horses and dogs. Beginning with her first horse, Comanche that her father bought, which she trained to show in competitions and local fairs. Donna was happiest when entertaining and cooking for family and friends. She took pride in raising her three daughters and later becoming a grandmother. She was always there to lend a helping hand with the grandbabies and ensuring a neat and tidy home at all times. Donna took pride in the opportunity to provide health care for both her parents, until their passing. Everyone that Donna met she embraced as family, and we all adored for her silly, carefree spirit

She is survived by her daughters, Kelly R. (Jeremy) Lanham and their children, Alex, Keegan, Madalynn, Kierstin and Jacklyn Cleary and fiancé Jessica R. Saker; Jennifer L. Cleary and fiancé, Tony Owens and their children, Ashton, Jayda, and Aubree; two sisters, Vicki and Marjorie; and brother-in-law, Joe Lane.

Donna was preceded in death by her brother, Jacklyn Lundell at 19, a Vietnam Veteran; her children's father, Robert P. Cleary at 64; and nephew, Jeffery Lane at 37.

The family would like to give special thanks to all the people whom helped care for her in the last months, and have shown their support to her daughters throughout this very difficult time.

A gathering for family and friends will be held Saturday from 1:00 - 3:00 P.M. at the Evans Funeral Home, 314 E. Main Street, Norwalk.
