Dona Gail Engle Obituary

Dona Gail Engle, age 88, passed away on June 8, 2024, at Henry Ford Hospice Home in Jackson, Michigan. Born on May 20, 1936, in Detroit, Michigan, Dona was the cherished daughter of the late Edwin and Dona Marchant.


Dona is survived by her loving children: Catherine Engle, Dana Thompson, William (Juanita Mannor) Engle, and James Engle. She was a proud grandmother to Aisha Fields, Kassandra Thompson, Alex Thompson, Chad Mannor, and Joanna Mannor, and a doting great-grandmother to Shiloh Fields and Percy Fields. She also leaves behind her niece, Linda, and nephews, Dennis and Steven.


Preceded in death by her parents and sisters, Carol Martin and Janet, Dona was a devoted mother and the sweetest woman, unmatched in her kindness and compassion. Her old-fashioned values of commitment and strength were the foundation of her life. Dona's empathetic and selfless nature, combined with her role as a peacemaker and her good sense of humor, made her an optimist who always saw the best in people. She was fiercely patriotic and held a deep love and respect for her country.


Dona was an animal lover and a nature lover who found joy in the beauty of the world around her. She was a loyal employee of the State of Michigan for over 34 years, a testament to her dedication and work ethic.


Her legacy is reflected in the fine people her circle grew to be, shaped by her unwavering commitment to family and community.
