On June 18, 1950, she was united in marriage to Stanley Schipull at the Eastside Lutheran Church in Eagle Grove. The couple made their home on a farm near Goldfield before moving to their farm north of Renwick.

In 2001, Donna and Stanley built their new home in Clarion where they remained until moving to Springvale Assisted Living in Humboldt in September of this year.

Donna got interested in collecting teddy bears while helping with the teddy bear convention in Clarion. A sports fan, Donna played basketball for the Goldfield town team in her younger years and enjoyed supporting the Iowa Hawkeyes. Donna especially enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren and the 22 winters she spent with Stan in Mesa, Arizona.
