LaDonna Evonne Price was born on March 20th, 1943 to parents Harry & Nelda Price in Rock Springs, Wyoming. She arrived on the seventh birthday of her sister, Nadine.

At the tender age of three weeks, LaDonna moved with her family to Glenrock, Wyoming where her father was employed. At age three years after her father’s untimely passing, her family moved to Douglas, Wyoming. She attended elementary & junior high school in Douglas, graduating from Converse County High School in 1961. In August of 1968, LaDonna moved to Lincoln, Nebraska to attend dental assisting school. In September of 1969, she graduated from Whittier School of Dental Assisting.

In 1972, LaDonna & her sister, Nadine, moved to Aurora, Colorado to find employment. She thoroughly enjoyed the dental profession. She allayed patients’ fears of dentistry. In 1996, her employer of 13 years surprised her with a two-week vacation to Maui, Hawaii. That was the most memorable highlight of her life. In March of 1998, after the unexpected passing of her sister, Nadine, LaDonna moved to Baldwin, Wisconsin to be near her brother, Raymond Price, & her sister-in-law, Jan. She was employed as an assistant in his office until her retirement from dentistry in 2002.

LaDonna’s deep abiding faith was the most important thing in her life. She attended Faith Community Church in Hudson, Wisconsin for 20 years. For 13 of those, she was a care provider in the infant nursery. This filled the void in her life of the unfulfilled dream of becoming a mother herself. LaDonna dearly loved caring for those babies.

On the morning of June 4th, 2020, LaDonna was greeted in Heaven by her Heavenly Father, her parents, sister, & many relatives. She leaves to mourn her passing her brother & sister-in-law, Raymond & Jan Price of Baldwin, Wisconsin, as well as numerous family members & friends.

A Memorial Service for LaDonna will be held at 10:30 AM, Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at the Phoenix Bar & Grill, 2095 10th Ave. Baldwin, WI, 715-688-3473, followed by food & fellowship. A Private Interment will take place at Douglas Park Cemetery in Douglas, Wyoming. Services entrusted to O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Baldwin, WI, 715-684-3434, baldwin@oconnellfuneralhomes.com.

    • Dr. Ray and Jan……Please accept my deepest sympathy in the passing of LaDonna. It seems like yesterday that I first met her at your dental office. She was always so full of life” as she greeted me with a big smile ! In reading her obituary I sense that she loved deeply her family members and was able to stay close them over her lifetime. Please know that Jean & I will have you in our thoughts and prayers as you say goodbye to LaDonna.
