Loretta "Rita" Donour

Loretta (Rita) G. Donour, 81, of Stanardsville, Virginia went to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 1, 2023 at Greene Acres Rehabilitation Center. She was born on June 5, 1941 in Alabama to the late William Henry and Ethel Synder of Tuscaloosa. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son Hugh C. Donour, Jr. and five sisters, Ora, Minnie, Clyde, Nell, and Pat.

Rita is survived by her daughters, Vicki Shifflett (Vince) of Stanardsville, VA and Adriene Watkins (Dennis) of Coker, AL as well as her Grandchildren, Todd Shifflett (Laura), Dylan Shifflett (Kelsey), of Stanardsville, VA, Dusty Michelle Cantrell (Jessie), Erica Tucker (Ryan), of Coker, AL, and Great Grandchildren, Leegan, Emma, Luke and Ella Ryan. Rita is also survived by two sisters, Gladys Estes and Clarice Booth, of Tuscaloosa, AL.

Rita was a great cook and enjoyed having family gatherings. She loved all of her family and especially spending quality time with them. She also loved playing cards (especially Rook), Yahtzee, and Dominoes with anyone willing to play.

Mom you will forever be in our hearts, and we will cherish the many memories from our time with you.

Mawmaw, you left us with beautiful memories, your love is still my guide and though we cannot see you, we know you will always be by our side.

The family would like to thank Greene Acres Rehab and Nursing Facility for their years of care for their mom. Though the name has changed several times, there were staff, nurses, and doctors that were with her from the beginning, or for several years. They always treated her and her family with the best care and the family is truly grateful.  

Services will be private and memorial contributions can be made to The National Psoriasis Foundation (1800 Diagonal Rd #360 Alexandria, VA, 22314) in her memory.

McDaniel Funeral Home, of Ruckersville, VA, is in charge of the arrangements.
