Donna Louise Zacharias of High Ridge, MO, departed this life at her home, on Friday, January 19, 2018, having reached the age of sixty-three years, ten months and twelve days. Donna was born in Joplin, MO, on March 7, 1954, daughter of Dale Lee Myers, Sr. and Mary Jean Myers nee Bartley. On July 23, 1983, she was united in marriage to Roy Allan Zacharias. In 2002 she began sharing her life with Glen Pierce.

Donna is survived by her boyfriend, Glen Pierce of High Ridge, MO; by her daughter, Rebecca Zacharias of Cleveland, OH; by her mother, Mary Jean Myers-Hopkins of Rolla, MO; by one brother, Dale Lee Myers, Jr. and fiancée, Debbie Murphy, of Rolla; by two sisters, Patricia Watkins and husband, Butch, of Rolla and Lena Schoenborn and husband, Ron, of St. James, MO; by twelve grandchildren; by aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, cousins and many other family and friends.

Donna was preceded in death by her father, Dale Lee Myers, Sr.; by her husband, Roy Zacharias, and by her nephew, Nathan Ryan Frost.

Donna had recently given her life to Christ believing in Him as her Savior. She was a graduate of the Rolla High School class of 1972. During her working career she started out as a telephone operator for Bell Telephone Company and had more recently been working at Schnucks in High Ridge, MO. She loved talking to her customers and co-workers and truly enjoyed her time spent there. During holidays you could always find Donna taking pictures and using them to make those moments extra special. A few other things she liked to do was playing games on her computer and tablet, as well as feeding her chickens and the birds. She especially enjoyed seeing the Cardinals come to her feeders. Donna also had a sweet tooth and it wasn't out of the ordinary to find candy stashed all around her home. What meant most to her was time spent with her family and friends and she cherished the many wonderful times they shared.

A kind and loving girlfriend, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, niece, aunt, great-aunt cousin and treasured friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.

The family entrusted the care of their loved one to Russell Colonial Funeral Home, St. Clair, MO.
