Donna Bee Bevinger

Donna Bee Bevinger, age 66 of Lancaster, went to be with the Lord on March 19, 2019.  She was born on January 10, 1953, to the late Charles and Virgene Coakley Brandt in Lancaster.  She graduated from Millersport High School in 1971.   Donna was one of the greatest Lunch Ladies ever, who retired from the Lancaster City Schools after 31 years of happily feeding the children throughout the district, especially Medill and Sanderson Elementary Schools.  She was a member of the LFD Ladder Ladies, enjoyed taking random trips, fishing, gardening, and was an amazing cook who enjoyed collecting recipes.  Donna loved to celebrate every occasion and just enjoyed being surrounded by her family and friends.  Her beautiful, constant smile and gift of laughter will be missed by everyone she knew.

She is survived by her four daughters, Mollie (Jarret) Rathburn, Mary Bevinger, Marty (Carl) Locke, and Marcee (Dustin) Roberts; grandchildren, Orion and Connor Bevinger, Ajay and Allie Locke and Emilee and Evelyn Roberts; siblings, Jim (Carol) Brandt and Cyntha Brandt; sisters-in-law, Mary Brandt and Kay (Ray) Lewis; several nieces and nephews; and a four legged guardian angel, Bella.

Donna was preceded in death by her loving husband, Art J. Bevinger; parents; and brothers, Dan Brandt and her twin Dave Brandt.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held March 25, 2019, at St. Bernadette Church, officiated by Father Craig R. Eilerman.  A committal service followed Mass at St. Mary Catholic Cemetery.  Memorials can made in Donna’s name to Dragon Boat Beaufort, PO BOX 213 Beaufort, SC 29901; Fairhope Hospice 282 Sells Rd. Lancaster, OH 43130; or Victory Center, 625 Garfield St. Lancaster, OH 43130.  Online condolences can be made at
