On December 2, 2023, Donna Ellen McCaulley, at the age of 64 was welcomed home by her Savior.  Donna was diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer on October 20, 2021 and battled courageously and graciously for just over two years.  During that time, she vowed to choose Joy on her journey, all the while looking for ways to make an impact in the lives of others.

Donna lived her life with a passion to share the good news of the gospel of Christ to every people, in every place.  To carry on the legacy of Donna and the mission to share her faith, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a memorial fund that will be dispersed to Grace Bible Church, RU Read E Ministries, The Timothy Initiative, and Pleasant View Baptist Church.
