Donna Cummings

Donna Cummings lived the final months of her life with courage and grace. She left this world in the familiar comfort of her home, tended to by her family on October 2, 2012. Born on July 13, 1933 to Henry Judson and Lillian Gertrude Weiermiller; her childhood began in a humble log home in Kalispell Montana. Her childhood included living in Lakewood Ohio, Tacoma Washington, and Ferndale Washington. Donna graduated from Ferndale High School and attended Western Washington College of Education. During this time she also worked at Mastons Drive-In, where she met her husband of 60 years, George Cummings. They were married on December 29th, 1951 in the midst of a huge snow storm. Donna left college when George enlisted in the USMC. Together they lived in Jacksonville Florida, Santa Anna California, Costa Mesa California, and then back to Washington State with homes in Burien, McMicken Heights and Federal Way. Donna and George had five children Lynda, Cyndie, Kym, Hydie and George III (Trey), all of whom grew up in the family home established in Federal Way in 1963. Donna devoted the whole of her life to loving and caring for her husband and children. She kept a beautiful home and was a skilled gardener. She was legendary in the neighborhood for her chocolate chip cookies which were baked in 12 dozen batches and widely shared. Throughout her children’s childhoods, Donna became a “second Mom” to several teens who needed extra love and support and a good meal. Donna had an abiding love of nature, especially the mountains which she shared with her family.

She leaves her family, which includes her husband George, five children and their spouses, ten grand children and spouses, and 3 great grandchildren, all who will miss her greatly. We are grateful for all that she gave us and that she now rests in peace and joy.
