Donna (Peterson) Hulsebus Moss
July 12, 1946-August 18, 2022
Donna Marie Hulsebus Moss passed away on August 18, surrounded by her sons, Mike Moss, of Omaha, and Tim Moss and daughter-in-law Clementine Moss, of San Francisco. A native of South-O, Donna is preceded in death by her parents, Oli and Helen Hulsebus. She is survived by her brother Jack Hulsebus and wife Kathy, and their children Jim, Susan and Bryan, of Detroit, and their families; brother Dan Hulsebus and wife Lori, and their children Daniel, Amanda and David, and their families, of Omaha. A true South Omaha girl, Donna was born in 1946, and attended Ryan High School.
Donna’s life was marked by her tough and loving spirit, her tenacity, generosity, devotion to family, and her fierce championing of the underdog. A career-woman before that was a popular choice, Donna was a trailblazer in the field of accounting, working for some of the biggest firms in Omaha when she was often the only female accountant in the office. Self-made, smart and creative, her passions were supporting the local art scene, and creating gorgeous interior design for herself and her friends. Above all, her true passion was to her sons, whom she raised in Elkhorn. She was a ferocious mother, always ready to support the boys in all their endeavors, from music careers to race car driving. As a mother-in-law, she was loving and generous, and her kindness knew no bounds. As a sister, she was a tough ally and joyful audience. As an aunt, she was present and loving; as a friend, loyal and fun. She contributed to various local charitable organizations, and helped build and strengthen several Omaha businesses. Donna brought beauty to everything she touched, and glamour to the most ordinary of gatherings. She will be forever loved, and her influence will be felt in a million ways in every life she graced.
Donna passed away on Aug. 18th, surrounded by her family. Survived by sons Tim Moss (Clementine) of San Francisco, and Michael Moss of Omaha, and brothers Jack (Kathy) of Detroit, and Dan (Lori) Hulsebus of Omaha, and families.
