Madonna Marie Emily “Donna” Livingston, age 73, of Rockford, formerly of Belding, passed away at home on Friday, April 8, 2016, surrounded by her loving family.  She was born on October 17, 1942, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Raymond Martin and Emily Frances (Repoze) Kennedy.  Donna graduated from Merchantville High School in Pennsauken, New Jersey, and relocated to Michigan shortly after starting her family.  In Michigan she lived in Alto for a short time and moved to Hastings where she owned and operated the Welcome Woods Campground from 1977 to 1994.  Running the campground was a labor of love for Donna and the entire family for those many years.  After she sold the campground, she relocated to Belding to live near her children and enjoy retirement.  Donna was a very social person and was all about family and friends all the time.  She loved to swim, enjoyed board games and was always willing to join in a family vacation whenever the opportunity arose.  She was a faithful member of Grace Bible Chapel and looked forward to participating in Bible study groups. 


Donna leaves to cherish her memory, her children, June Marie (Paul) Reinhart of Belding, Kimberly Lynne (Sean) Smart of Rockford and Raymond Albert (Margaret) Duimstra of Lowell; grandchildren Jason (Katie) Gillett, Brittany (Chris) Jones, Brandon Reinhart, Christa Eaton, Elizabeth (Steven Camling) Reinhart, Travis Reinhart, Matthew (Mercedes) Mullins, Jarrett Duimstra, Delaney Duimstra, Wyatt Duimstra and Ellory Duimstra; and great grandchildren, Ella, Everett, Brinley, Skilynn, Edie, Tenley, Matthew, Jr., and Brooklynn; several nieces and nephews; and a dear “sister-in-law” and friend, Margaret Anderson.  She was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Raymond Kennedy and Thomas “Ronnie” Kennedy; and a sister-in-law, Marion Kennedy.
