Donna was born March 27, 1927, in Newton, Iowa, to Harold “Gail” Engle and Leona Engle. Growing up in the Depression Era was extremely difficult for her and her siblings. As a child, it seemed as if, there was never enough of the basics, let alone anything extra. While attending Newton High School, Donna worked to pay for her own clothing and spending money. She was the pretty girl behind the candy counter at the Woolworth’s five and dime. In 1945, after graduation, she married Floyd Mulbrook, a Navy serviceman. After the war, together they physically built their life long home in Metz and raised three children. The Metz Community Church was her place to worship.
