Donna Panger

Donna Faye Panger, 88, of Cloquet, MN passed away Sunday, June 19, 2022, joining her beloved husband, Gale “Pickles” Panger, who passed away in 2012.

The daughter of John and Dorothy (Wolfe) Huard, Donna was born on November 26, 1933, and was a graduate of Cloquet High School. She was a member of Queen of Peace Catholic Parish.

Donna is survived by her five sons, Ross, Tim, Paul, John (Michelle), Steve (Robyn) and three daughters, Gayla, (Hans), Trish (Bill) and Ann Panger as well as nine grandchildren: Leah and Kyle Raaflaub, Michael and Matthew Panger, Ryan Miller, Emma and Alex Panger, Sam and Sophia Panger and one great-granddaughter Maddisen Panger.

If asked, Donna would tell you her greatest accomplishment was the cherished time spent with her husband Gale, raising her eight children, and loving every moment spent with her grandchildren. There was nothing that meant more to her.

Services will be held Tuesday, June 28, 2022, at Queen of Peace Catholic Church with visitation from 9:00 a.m. until the 11:00 a.m. Memorial Mass. A lunch reception will follow in the Church Parish Hall.
