Donna Kay Hill, 65, passed away peacefully surrounded by beloved friends and family at Peace Hospice on February 21, 2023. Donna was born September 6, 1957, to Ray and Joyce Mayberry in Great Falls, Montana. She married Jerry Hill on March 4, 1999, in Las Vegas, Nevada, “honeymooning” at the Nascar races that weekend. The marriage blended two families, their love for racing, and their love for each other.
Donna lived most of her adult life in “the Coulee,” she made friends quickly with her warm sense of humor and her bright smile. She was known for assigning quirky nicknames to those closest to her. If you have one, know she loved you. She loved her plants, her collectibles, and especially her many fur babies. Donna worked in banking, retiring from US Bank after thirty-eight years of service.
Donna is survived by her brothers, Tim and Tom Maberry; stepdaughters, Lila (Mark) Pepin and JJ Hill; son-in-law, Paul Pronteau; grandchildren, Samantha, Derek, Colter, Jeffrey (Brenna), Katrina, Jazzie, and Mason; and four great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry; daughter, Tammi Pronteau; father, Ray Maberry; stepmother, Debra Maberry; and mother, Joyce Maberry.
Per her wishes, Donna has been cremated and she will be laid to rest at Highland Cemetery with her husband Jerry. A potluck celebration of life will be held in her honor on March 26, 2023, at 1:00 p.m. at the VFW (4123 10th Ave S, Great Falls, MT 59405).
The family wishes to thank everyone for their continuous love and support during the last several years. We are so very thankful for each and every one of you. Memorials are suggested to Peace Hospice of Montana and the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center.
