Donna Jean (Good) Fish

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — Donna Jean (Good) Fish, 85, of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, died in her sleep of natural causes in the memory care unit of Prairie House Assisted Living on Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021.

She was born Aug. 31, 1935, in Parsons.

Donna is survived by her husband of 66 years, Edwin M. Fish of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and their children, Leanna, Brian and his wife, Leona, Scott and Neil and his wife, Elizabeth; eight grandchildren, Miranda, Andrew, Jenna, Alex, Sydney, Eilie, Callie and Mason; and 11 great-grandchildren, Courtlyn, Bradlee, Carleigh, Avery, Ruby, Benjamin, Owen, Elliette, June, Addison and Holden. Her love of family extended to many honorary grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Emory E. Good Jr. and Esther Good; a sister, Judy Langley; and a granddaughter, Ashley Fish.

Donna was a devoted wife, an accomplished seamstress, a fabulous and fun-loving mother and mentor to many as a leader of Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts. She celebrated every holiday with gusto and great cheer through decorations, the annual Christmas letter and mailing innumerable greeting and birthday cards every year. Her party and event planning were thematically coordinated and detail-oriented, and she made great effort to ensure every occasion was a joyous event. Gardening and floral design brought her great joy. Those who knew Donna best were sure to enjoy her caring heart, quick wit and sense of humor; she was always up for a good laugh. 

Burial will be at 2 p.m. Monday at Memorial Lawn Cemetery in Parsons.

The family invites friends to choose their favorite charity for loving contributions.
