Ann T. Donahue

January 23, 1931 — July 11, 2020

ANN T. DONAHUE, of Scottsdale, Arizona, unexpectedly passed away on the afternoon of Saturday, July 11, 2020 at her son’s home in rural Janesville.

Born in Mankato on January 23, 1931, Ann was the daughter of Raymond and Margaret (Keeley) Nolan. She graduated from Janesville High School and continued her education at Mankato State University. She enjoyed her years of teaching before her marriage to Robert Donahue on July 14, 1956. Bob and Ann shared eighteen years of marriage before his passing in the summer of 1974. Ann was a very loving and dedicated mother to their six children.

Over the years she enjoyed her time spent with the Lady Eights Bridge Club and her golf friends at the Waseca Lakeside Golf Club. After moving to Scottsdale, her love for golf and bridge continued, where she made many more wonderful friends along the way. She was always complimented for her style and beauty, but more importantly, she was known as a loyal friend and incredible listener. She loved to stay active and was very social with her family and close friends in Scottsdale.

Ann was a devoted mom to her children, Mark (Tan) of Scottsdale, AZ, Mary Ann (John) of Minnetonka, Craig (Traci) of Keller, TX, John (Debora) of rural Janesville, Robert (Marina) of Corpus Christi, TX, and Beth of Aspen, CO. She is also survived by seven grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and one brother, Tom (Janet) of Owatonna. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; four siblings; and one grandson, Colin.

A public celebration for friends and family will be held from 12:00PM until 3:00PM on Thursday, July 16, 2020 at the Indian Island Winery (18018-631st Ave Janesville, MN).
