Donna Evans (Larsen)

Donna Evans (Larsen)

Donna Jean (Evans) Larsen Donna Jean (Evans) Larsen, age 72, passed away on September 9, 2017, at home on Camano Island, WA, surrounded by family. The Lord be with you Donna as you take your final journey home. Donna was born on August 21, 1945, in Virginia, but spent most of her childhood in Edmonds, WA. She graduated from nursing school at the University of Washington in 1967 and spent the majority of her career as a public health nurse with the Snohomish Health Department. Nursing was not only her profession, it was her true calling and passion. She was often the person her friends and family turned to for comfort, advice and as the go-to on-call nurse for questions about newborns, sore throats, an odd looking rash and other medical mysteries. Donna married the love of her life, Robert (Bob) C. Larsen on October 3, 1969. Bob and Donna were married for 47 before he passed away in March of 2016. Their marriage was filled with love of family, friends, children and animals. They raised their family of three girls (along with numerous cats, a dog and a few rabbits) in Woodinville, WA. Donna loved life on Camano Island surrounded by the water and views of the mountains. She in-grained herself as part of the community as an active member of the Yacht Club member, Garden Club, and several other social groups on the island. She was also a founding and lifelong member of the Seattle Children's Hospital Dorothy H. Johnson Guild. She is survived by her three daughters, Aimee Larsen Kirkpatrick (David), Rebecca Larsen and Michelle Johnson (Josh); her two granddaughters, Isana and Katherine and her two cats, Tater and Lulu. She is also survived by her siblings, Carol Speaker, Jim Evans, Steve Evans, Bert Evans and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of Donna's Life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at Camano Lutheran Church followed by a reception at the Camano Center. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Donna's name to Seattle Children's Hospital: www.seattlechildrens.org/ways-to-help/donate/honor-loved-one/

How shocking and sad. Donna was so active in every after school sports program. She was always fun to be with. Condolences to her family.

So sad to hear about Donna, a sweet, giving person, active in sports and EHS groups, a friend to all. Not surprising she got her nursing degree in college and bet she gave out a lot of TLC. I feel honored to have known her.

I didn't know her well, but remember her gentle presence. She was friendly to everyone. The world has lost a good person. Sleep well my friend.

I am so sad to hear of Donna's passing! She was a dear friend of mine.  Fun days when she worked at the A&W to the wonderful times she drove me to Alderwood Manor to see Jim because I didn't have a drivers license! She was a gentle soul with a big heart...so many of our classmates have said "see you later"...

What a loss! Donna was so fun to know & be friends with. Being together on drill team, in class, GAA, and class activities was a great experience!! Her beautiful smile always greeted you! May our memories of Donna keep her in our hearts.

I am so sad to hear of Donna's passing.  She was always someone that showed leadership and someone that you could count on to be up beat and cheerful.  When Jeanne (Lambe) and I lived in a house at Western, Donna was doing her internship (?) at Western State Hospital and would live with us on the weekends she had off.  We had many laughs over one of her patients who thought he was a rabbit!  She was a true blessing to all who knew her.
