Donna Skoviak White, 82, of White Pine passed away on December 26, 2021, after a battle with cancer. She was a fighter to the end. She was a three-time cancer surviver but those battles over 30 years had taken their toll and she couldn’t beat it this time.
Donna was born to John Skoviak and Pauline (Chopp) Skoviak on Feb. 7, 1939 in Trimountain Michigan. She spent her early years in Painsdale, and moved to Ontonagon in the mid 1940’s. In 1953 they moved to White Pine and purchased the family home that she lived in at the time of her passing. Donna graduated from Ontonagon High School in 1957. She enjoyed her days doing puzzles, crosswords watching her soaps and spending time with her family, her cat Abby and grand cat Charlie.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband Robert White, her big brother and sister-in-law John (Yaka) and Joy Skoviak and her little sister Rita Saari.
She is survived by her children Karen (Shawn) Laine of Eveleth, Minnesota, Jimmer (Luci) Noble of Callahan, Florida, Susan (Michelle) LaRose of Eagle River, Wisconsin, John (Becky) Noble of Buffalo, Minnesota and Bobbi Jo (Josh) Gosnell of Eagle River, Wisconsin, her step children Roberta, Tammy and Ronnie White of Michigan, her brother and sister-in-law Frano and Jo-Ann Skoviak of White Pine, her brother Clem Skoviak of White Pine, brother-in-law Don Saari of White Pine, and brother-in-law and sister-in-law Harvey “Kay” and Carol White of Iron River, Michigan. She has 19 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews, and her 23 year old cat Abby. We know Donna is enjoying a cuppa coffee in paradise with all her loved ones that were waiting there for her.
A celebration of life and burial will be held in the Spring and announced at a later date.
The Cane Funeral Home is assisting the family.
