In 1955, Donnie married Wayne Torluemke. They made their home in Fall City and lived in the same home for 64 years. Wayne preceded her in death in 2004.

Donnie was beloved by everyone she met, but especially her family. She was very generous with her time for family and friends. She enjoyed gardening, crafting, garage sales and keeping her bird feeder filled. She was always trying a new recipe or collecting craft ideas to make and sell at the annual Methodist bazaar. She made everyone she met feel welcome. It was always what can she do for you or could she fix you something to eat.

She is survived by her son Mike (Nancy) Torluemke, (three grandsons and six great-grandchildren) of Fall City; daughter Katy (Jerry) Gresham (grandson Dustin) of Renton; niece Robinn Althea (Jim Hill), children Cody (Kirsi) Jones, kids Taryn and Parker and Christine McDowell (Jeremie) kids Reid, Reagan and Rosalie of E.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances to Fall City United Methodist Church. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Donnie’s life. The family would like to thank Barbara, Sharon and Janet (her caregivers) for their dedication in her time of need.
