Donna Coral Canning Good
Donna Coral Canning Good, 89, of Pequot Lakes, died peacefully surrounded by her family on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, at St. Therese Nursing Home of New Hope, Minn.
Donna was born June 12, 1924, in Cameron, Wis., to Adeline and Worden Canning. Growing up, Donna thoroughly enjoyed roller-skating but she was a champ at ping-pong and played it into her 50s and won! Donna was married to Donald W. (Bud) Good from 1946 to 1970. In 1959, Donna, Bud and the children moved to a log cabin in Pequot Lakes, Minn., where they lived until 1965, when they moved to Lakeville, Minn. After a career as a dental technician, Donna returned to her beloved cabin in 1979, where she lived until she took up residence at St. Therese in 2008.
Donna was a Pequot Lakes City Council member from 1992-2000 and ran for mayor of Pequot Lakes in 2000.
Donna was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Phyllis Canning, Beth Carlson, Juanita Krogh and Norma Runnels; brothers, Worden Jr., Worden (Boyd), Roland (Rod), Lynn and Stuart Canning; and grandson, Christopher (Scott) Callison.
She is survived by and will be greatly missed by four children, Larry (Jane) Good, Laureen Tanoura, Linda (Chris) Callison and Libby (Rick) Wollenberg; 13 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews who lovingly knew her as “Auntie Donna.”
The family would like to thank the staff at St. Therese of New Hope and North Memorial Hospice for their excellent care. Memorials are preferred to St. Therese Foundation.
