Donna was born on May 12, 1957, in Springfield, Minnesota, the daughter of Lamoine and Marguerite Otto Leopold. She married Kenneth L. Middle on January 15, 1977 in Sanborn, Minnesota.

Donna was a homemaker while their three children were young, and later worked at HyVee. She truly enjoyed her role as Nana to her grandchildren, who she loved caring for as well. Donna's interests were varied, from music and reading to traveling; from cooking and baking to rooting for her Gophers, Twins, Vikings, and Iowa State Cyclones; or just getting out of the house to walk her dog. But it all came back to family for Donna, there was never anything more important to her than the time she had with them.

She will be deeply missed by her husband, Kenneth Middle; her children, Chad Middle of Muscatine, and Christina Middle of Madison, Wisconsin, Melissa Busch and her husband John of Muscatine; grandchildren, John Busch Jr. and Henry Busch; her Mother, Marguerite Leopold of Lamberton, Minnesota; siblings, Carol Hillesheim and her husband Vern of Sanborn, Minnesota, Doug Leopold and his wife Denese of Springfield, Minnesota, Don and his wife Beth of Redwood Falls, Minnesota, Marilyn Dammann of Duluth, Minnesota, Gail Leopold of Redwood Falls, Minnesota, Tim Leopold and his wife Linda of Galesville, Wisconsin, and Michelle Hammill and her husband Chad of Willmar, Minnesota; Mother-in-law Katheron Middle of Rock Valley, Iowa; brothers- and sisters-in-law Linda Baker and her husband Conrad of Canton, South Dakota, Duane Middle and his wife Lynn of Rock Valley, Iowa, Judy Ketcham and her husband Greg of Spirit Lake, Iowa, and Debra Middle of Sheldon, Iowa; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Donna was preceded in death by her father, Lamoine, and father-in-law George Middle; and brothers-in-law Brad Dammann and Doug Middle.
