Donna Lee Lois Bjorklund

Donna Lee Lois Bjorklund, 78, of DeRidder, LA, passed from this life on Friday, July 12, 2019.


Donna married Neal in Marathon, Iowa in 1959.  They moved to Louisiana in November 1961.  She worked a few years on O’Neal’s Egg Farm where her husband was the manager and she was a housewife and excellent baker.  Many evenings she would have a special treat baked for her children when they came in after school.  She loved dogs and birds and supported the humane society. She was a huge fan of the New Orleans Saints and the New Orleans Pelicans.  She was a kind and sweet person who was loved dearly by many.  She took care of others and sacrificed a lot of her needs and wants to ensure everyone else would be happy. There will never be anyone else like her to us.


Those left to cherish her  memory are her son, Bradley Bjorklund and Jaclyn of DeRidder, LA; daughters, Roxanne Thornton and Mike of DeRidder, LA and Renae Pitre and Joey of DeRidder, LA; nine grandchildren, five great grandchildren and two more on the way; her dog, Gypsy and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.


She was preceded in death by her husband of 38 years, Neal Bjorklund; infant son, Mark Arlo Bjorklund; and her parents, Clarence and Edith Lundberg.


Graveside Funeral service will be at 11:00 AM, Monday, July 15, 2019, at Whitaker Cemetery in DeRidder, LA.  Reverend Paul Bell will officiate the service.  Pallbearers will be Brandon Fuselier, Sean Fuselier, Tyler Bjorklund, Tanner Bjorklund, Trent Bjorklund, Lance Grant and Barrett Simmons.
