Obituary For Donna Ferrell

With humble respect, Sewell Mortuary in Grantville announces the transition of Donna Ferrell on Friday, August 20th, 2021.

Graveside service will be Friday the 27th, at 11:00 AM at White Oak Grove Old Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 4 to 6 PM on Thursday at Sewell Mortuary.

Donna Anita Ferrell was born April 8, 1962, at Grady Memorial Hospital
to the late Cecil Ferrell Sr. and Mildred Wimbish Ferrell. As she entered
at Grady, she was granted her wings at the same hospital on August 20,
2021, surrounded by her loving children, Tiffany and Isiah.

She joined Mount Sinai Baptist Church at an early age and attended
White Oak Grove Baptist Church. She attended A. F. Herndon
Elementary and McCrary Elementary. She graduated from Woodbury
High School Class of 1980. She worked at Standard Product in Griffin,
GA, and Southern Mills/Tencate for over 35 years until she couldn’t
physically perform her job. She created lifelong bonds with friends that
interacted as family at Standard Product and Tencate.

Donna was called by family members as “Dino” and by her siblings as
“Sargent Waters”. She was known to her grandchildren as “Nana” who
she loved beyond measure and enjoyed working as their “short order”
cook. Donna loved the “Oakland Raiders” football team which she
enjoyed watching every Sunday while trash talking with her family. Her
past time was talking on the phone with her family/friends and
connecting with friends on Facebook. Donna was a generous person
that would give her last in order to help others. God truly gained a
beautiful angel!

She loved her family and friends and fought a good fight until the end.
Donna leaves to cherish her loving memories two children, Tiffany
(Jarvis) Hudson and Isiah (Lekim) Ferrell. She leaves three precious
grandchildren, Lencia Aniya Ferrell, Kaleb Stephens, and Zachariah
Ferrell. Three siblings will be coping with her loss as well, Deborah
Ferrell, Cecil Ferrell, Jr., and Gregory (Sherry) Ferrell. Donna leaves one
aunt, Etta Ruth Ferrell, and one uncle, Chester (Hazel) Ferrell. She leaves
a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends.
