Carrie Sue Donald 52, of Mancelona passed away suddenly in her home, Thursday December 10, 2020. She was born February 11, 1968 in Kalkaska, the daughter of Walter “Wink” Rohde and Sandra (St. John) Rohde.
On July 15, 2006 at the Free Methodist Church in Mancelona, two hearts would forever beat as one, as Carrie married the love of her life Brad Donald.
A lifelong resident and graduate of Mancelona (higher education at Delta College), Carrie had found herself gracefully employed by Curves, The Message Center, and ODS the Door Specialists. Carrie was passionate about being the support for survivors of domestic violence. She had adventurous hobbies such as kayaking, rock hunting, exploring Lake Superior, and making herself renowned to many making tic-tocks. Free-spirited (two words that really described her) Carrie was the life of every gathering, the wild child that made everyone laugh, and the one you could always hear in the crowd.
Survived by her husband Brad Donald, children Jonathon Tyson (Marylou), Kayla Hayes (Erik), Dylan Cousineau, and Evelynn Donald, grandchildren Payton Tyson, Adahlia Hayes, Kaiona Hayes, Easton Rios and Ava Rios, a sister Mikecallyn Rohde, brothers Doug Rohde and Scott Rohde, Mother Sandra Rohde.
Preceding her in rest was her brother Tony Rohde, her uncle Robert Rohde, and Father Walter “Wink” Rohde.
Private family services will be held.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in her honor to the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan, 423 Porter Street, Petoskey, MI 49770.
Arrangements are in the care of the Mancelona Chapel of Mortensen Funeral Homes. Please sign her online guestbook at www.mortensenfuneralhomes.com
