Obituary for Donna Marie Whisler

Donna Marie  Whisler
Donna Marie (Jones) Whisler, 77, of Morgantown died on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 at J.W. Ruby Hospital in Morgantown.

She was born on September 7, 1945 in Morgantown, WV, and grew up in the Granville area.

Donna is survived by sons David A. (Mary) Whisler of Gladesville, and Timothy E. (Stephanie) Whisler of Morgantown; grandchildren Hannah Whisler and Zackery Weese; sisters Judy (Laverne) Haines and Sandy Jones, both of Morgantown, brother John C. (Robin) Jones also of Morgantown; as well as several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents Clarence Earl and Susan Jones, and son Steven T. Whisler.

Donna graduated from University High School in Morgantown in 1963. She and her former husband Edwin Whisler, Jr. operated Whisler Floor Covering for several years in the Morgantown area.

She was associated with the Morgantown congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
In keeping with her wishes, the gift of life was shared with others through organ and tissue donation.

The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the caring staff of CORE, the MICU at Ruby Memorial Hospital as well as all those who took time out of their busy workday to take part in the Honor Walk. You all made this difficult time a little easier to bear.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
