Donna Dee Taylor, age 88, passed away at Care Partners in Spooner on August 27, 2021. She was born on June 3, 1933 in Prentice, WI to William and Elvey (Karlen) Dietze. Donna trained as a nurse at the Luther Hospital School of Nursing in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, graduating in 1954. She married Howard Taylor of Black River Falls in 1955. Donna was a wonderful and caring registered nurse for over 50 years, working at the Veterans Home, Maplewood and Dr. Murphy’s Office. She loved being around people and helping others, volunteering as a Sunday School Teacher and at the Senior Center in Bloomer.
