Donna Rae Leppo, 77, passed away January 2, 2024, in Jackson, CA. She was born on August 18, 1946, in Richmond, CA to Lawrence and Beulah Kitzmiller.
Donna was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmama, and a great grandma (Gigi). She loved to spend most of her time with family and friends. If it was camping in her trailer with her dogs, or better yet her bestie (Nadine) or spending endless hours watching all of her (great) grandchildren playing whatever sport was going on, being loud and proud and the biggest fan! Which I think she loved and enjoyed the most. Donna was always bragging about what stud athletes her grandkids are. But most of all she loved to cook, no meal too big or small Gigi had it all under control. She loved to have every last holiday at her house just so she could cook the best meal and have all the family together. Many of you have seen her behind the deli counter in Jon’s Pit Stop for years.
Donna loved to do arts and crafts in her past time. Putting a smile on your face when she handed you something she made from her heart was pure enjoyment. She was always there to lend the helping hand, wanting to be involved with everything that her loved ones were doing. To see Donna smile and living life to the fullest was what she did best. Donna will be missed by so many and loved by all of us! Donna’s personality, hugs and love are irreplaceable.
Donna is survived by her husband, Ronald Leppo of Jackson, CA; daughter, Regina Leppo; grandchildren, Dustin Leppo, Vonne (sunshine) Leppo, Kyle Leppo, Trevor Narasaki, Dakota Andersen, Trinity Andersen, Damien Leppo, Kayla Leppo, and Karley Leppo. As well as 12 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Beulah Trudo, Lawrence Kitzmiller and loving son Ronnie Louis Leppo Jr.
At the family’s request there will be no services at his time.
