Donna May Patterson Colfax Donna May Patterson, 86, passed away Friday, October 30, 2020, at Accura HealthCare of Newton-East after a long and courageous battle against Alzheimer 's disease. Donna was born on February 19, 1934 in Colfax, Iowa, the daughter of Donald George "Mike" Jones and Gertrude Ann (Border) Jones. Donna attended Colfax High School and graduated in 1952.

Wonderful mother who loved her sons beyond measure. Tremendous Colfax family, you have my deepest sympathies.

Jim Weirick on Oct 31, 2020

A great mother and kind person from another great Colfax family. My Mom and Dad (John and Harriette Weirick) thought the world of Bob and Donna Patterson. They were part of Colfax's greatest generation, greatly involved in its growth and success. God Bless you all. Jim Weirick of Rochester, MN.
