Donna Virgene Larkins

Donna Virgene Ward Larkins, born November 7, 1935, earned her wings on April 18, 2021. A lifelong Portland, Ohio resident, Donna graduated from Racine Southern High School. She was a homemaker and wife for over 65 years, and proud Mother of three children.

Donna loved planting flowers, gardening, canning and just about everything outdoors. She was one heck of a softball player and also knew her way around the basketball court. You could often find her at the landing fishing with her sisters or shooting a ground mole or two. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family.

Donna flew home to to be with her Mother Kathleen Jackson Ward, Father Charles Ward, Daughter Pamela Larkins Proffitt Ballard, Sister Rebecca Ward Wolfe, Brother Donald Ward, and Grandson Christopher Proffitt.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband Howard Larkins, Daughter Cheryl Larkins (Neil Stewart), Son Brent Larkins, Sister Barbara Ward Miller (Ron), Sister Shirley Ward Rose (Fred), Sister Charleen Ward Garver (Dave), Grandson Jamison "Jamie" Proffitt, Granddaughter Brianne Perry (Todd), Great Granddaughters Jaden and Jillian Proffitt, and Josie Perry, and Son-in-law Mickey Ballard. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and friends that will forever miss her smile.

May the highest of spirits and the purest of energies accompany her on her journey.
