Donna M. Mealey, 66, of Silver Bay, Minn., passed away, on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2008, peacefully in her sleep at her home. She was born April 9, 1941 in Cass Lake, Minn., to Toivo and Violet Kauppi. She married David Mealey in 1963. Donna was a proud member of the Bios Forte Band of Chippewa Indians, St. Mary's Catholic Church and the Ladies Auxiliary of VFW Post 6204. Donna's love of animals meant that no home was complete without a dog (or two or three), a cat, birds and whatever showed up at the door. Donna's favorite hobby was taking pictures, and in the winter she loved watching her grandchildren play hockey. Her grandchildren and their friends were always welcome at Grandma's cookie jar. Donna was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband of 45 years David; three daughters, Ann (Jerry) Salzar of Cold Spring, Minn., Carol (Todd) Krynski of Silver Bay, and Suzan (Brandin) Olson of Beaver Bay; two sons, Thomas (Delsie) and Timothy (Monica) both of Silver Bay; 13 grandchildren, Timothy, Jonathan, Leah, Natalie, Nikki, Nate, David, Nikolas, Coby, Brody, Cooper, Jeremy, and Katie. VISITATION:10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 28, 2008 until the 11 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial in St. Mary's Catholic Church, Silver Bay. Burial will be at Sawtooth Mountain Cemetery. Arrangements by Cavallin Funeral Home.
