Donna Mae Sparks, 80, entered into the loving arms of the Lord on Thursday, February 4, 2021. She passed away from natural causes at Israel Family Hospice House of Ames.

Donna was born in Des Moines on August 14, 1940, to Faye and Howard Sparks. Donna was one of 16 children. After growing up on a farm in Colo, she married Roger Miller in 1958, and together they had three children. Years later, they divorced but remained close friends.

She gave her heart to Jesus in 1965, and He was her one true love. Donna lived around the country and traveled around the world, with a focus on a ministry for Jesus. She made many friends and touched many lives in her travels, and was a faithful tither and financial supporter of missionaries.

Donna spent her last years at the Hubbard Care Center, and she enjoyed her fellowship there. She regularly participated in music and craft activities, and was always happy to share the gospel with anyone who would listen.

Donna is survived by her three children, Kenny (Amy) Miller of Radcliffe, Keven Miller of Jewell, and Brenda (David) Mittlestadt of Jewell. Her legacy also lives on with her grandchildren, Amanda Riordan, Kory Miller, Matthew Miller, Crystal Wiese, Dustin Miller, Nicholas Miller, Deven Miller; and 11 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by siblings, Robert, Phillip, Richard, Ray, Dinah, and Jack.

Donna was preceded in death by her parents; as well as siblings William, Leroy, Glenn, Shirley, Donald, Delores, Raymond, Charles, and Terry.

Memorial services will be planned at a future date.

Ames Monument & Cremation Center has been entrusted with the care of Donna and her family.

Donna was like a second mom to me. She was the first person to ever talk to me about Jesus. I'm forever grateful to know Him as my Savior and my Lord. She sure loves her Jesus and I'm so veo happy she is with Him. Much love to those grieving her passing.

What a lovely lady she was and a wonderful and caring aunt. I've never known anyone who lived the word every minute of the day and and prepared her entire live for going to Jesus. I bet she and all her family are having a joyous reunion. I am comforted knowing she is with my mom as well. I'll treasure all the great times we had. Such wonderful memories and I have so many cards and letters from her that I can always reread to comfort me. Job well done Auntie. What a faithful and devoted servant!
