DonnaLee Juanita Zolotoff
January 31, 1933 - March 13, 2020

Donna was born January 31, 1933 in Salem, Oregon to Claude and Leona (Koehler) Hupp. She passed away in Albany on March 13th after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.

Growing up in Gervais, Oregon, she graduated from Gervais High School in 1950. In August of 1952, Donna married the love of her life, John Zolotoff. They were rarely apart and spent 67 wonderful years together.

She worked as a nursing assistant at hospitals in Longview, Washington and Albany, Oregon but always thought that time spent in the Silverton Hills working for her brother Delbert at Drakes Crossing Nursery was her favorite. While raising Terry, Connie, Denise and Tim, she was a tough-as-nails row boss in the family berry fields giving quarter to no one, especially her 4 children!

Donna loved her family first and foremost and was a favorite aunt with her many nieces and nephews. She planted a beautiful vegetable garden each year and her canned green beans were the best in the world! She always shared the bounty with her family, friends and fellow parishioners at Faith Lutheran Church where she was a member for many years. She was an excellent seamstress creating her own and daughter Denise’s wedding dress and almost all of Connie’s clothes through high school.

She is survived by her husband, John; children Terry (Patty) Zolotoff of Newberg, Connie (Ray) Seems of Bend, Denise (Ray) McGinty, Tim (Karen) Zolotoff of Albany. Preceding Donna in death were her parents, brothers and sisters Delbert Hupp, Alton Hupp, Barbara King and Beverly Madding. Donna felt very blessed with five grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.

Services are pending.
