Donna Kay Baldwin went to be with her Lord Jesus on August 19, 2019. She was born on March 9, 1940 in Los Angles, CA. Donna Kay married her husband, Walter Baldwin on June 13, 1959.
Walter and Donna Kay have four children, Melody (Keith) Hibbard, Donald (Kris) Baldwin, Bonnie (Robert) Horneman and Brenda (Craig) Woods. Walter and Donna Kay also have 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
After their wedding, Donna Kay joined Walter at the Navajo Gospel Mission, on the Navajo reservation in Arizona, where they served together as missionaries among the Navajo Indians for 11 years. All four of their children were born on the reservation. Donna Kay and Walter then served with Tecate Mission on the border of Mexico. In 1974 they joined Wycliffe Bible Translators and served in Brazil, Peru and at JAARS, Wycliffe's logistics center in Waxhaw, NC.
Donna Kay had a heart for missions and helping reach the world with the Gospel. With her fun, out-going personality and gifts of service and hospitality she regularly welcomed people into their home and was quick to cook a meal. She saw it as a way to serve the Lord. She loved her family and was always the center of creating family get-togethers and lots of yummy food. Her grandkids and great grandkids were her pride and joy. We are going to greatly miss her but are comforted by the assurance she is no longer suffering, is with the Lord and we will see her again.
The Family invites you to come celebrate the life and ministry of Donna Kay Baldwin.
