    I am so sorry for your loss. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve seen the family but I still remember Debbie and Danielle babysitting me years ago and going over to the house. I also remember the many Police Softball games with Dick and my dad ( Ron Gentzler) playing on and the police picnics at Peony Park. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    Dragoun family: Please accept my condolences on your loss. During my childhood, the Dragoun family lived next door to mine near 48th and Bancroft St in Omaha. Many happy and some sad memories including the frequent morning coffees that my mm shared with Donna. It was always a delight to see these two together. Treasure the great memories that you have of her. May God continue to Bless you all. 🙏🏻 For you!

    It is terribly unfortunate we have lost such a beautiful lady, inside and out. I had the gracious opportunity of meeting Donna (Mom Dragoun) when Doug and Joanna married in 2002 my family stayed with mom and dad Dragoun and after a short time, they became mom and dad and, grandma and grandpa to our three kids. She was such a spunky lady and she absolutely loved life to the fullest, especially her husband. What a love they shared! I had never seen such an amazing attraction and love for one another.

    We absolutely love and adore you Dragoun Family and we feel extremely fortunate to be and continue being part of your family. We love you mom and will miss you dearly.

    I was so sad to learn of Donna’s passing. My parents were friends of Dick and Donna. I remember Donna babysitting my sister and Myself before my brother and youngest sister were born. We always had fun at their house, it was a treat to spend time with them. I’m sorry I missed her visitation last night. The last time I saw her was at my dad’s funeral almost 7 years ago. Please accept our prayers and condolences to Dick and the rest. Of her family. I know she will be missed. Mindi and Steve Kurtz and Robert Sieborg.
