Donna Elizabeth Lechuga, age 72, longtime resident of Altus, Oklahoma, passed away Saturday, January 29, 2022 at Jackson County Memorial Hospital in Altus.

Donna was born on September 17, 1949 in Youngstown, Ohio to her parents Donald and Mary (Kemp) McEndree. She grew up in Barnseville, Ohio where she graduated class of 1967 from Barnesville High School. After high school, Donna lived in several places until she met the love of her life Santiago A. Lechuga, Sr. and they were married on April 12, 1980 in Hamlin, Texas. They have been together for over 57 years and happily married for over 41 years.

Donna and Santiago settled in the southwest Oklahoma area where she finished her education graduating from Western Oklahoma State College with an Associates in Applied Science. Donna worked worked at Kellwoods Sewing Factory in Altus for a brief time before becoming a licensed daycare operator in 1991.

She sold it and returned to running her own daycare from her home in September of 2017.
