Heart Emblem

Donna Arnold Clyde, age 89, went to her heavenly home on, Wednesday, June 20, 2018, due to natural causes. She was born in McGregor, MN, raised in Milwaukee, WS, until her late husband, Morris Clyde found her at a College Dance and whisked her off on her new journey in life. Morrie and Donna retired to Loranger, LA in 1998, from New Orleans and developed many new and lifelong relationships within the community.

Donna is survived by her four daughters: Colleen Smith, of Washington State; Eileen Anderson (Randy) of Gonzales, LA; Kathy Barnett (Rick) of Port Allen, LA; and Mary Clyde of Washington State. GiGi, as she was affectionately known, is survived by her Grandchildren: Chris, Coleby, Erin, Amber, Robin, Nathan, Carli, Sommer, and Aimee. Great Grandchildren: Reuben, Olivia, Kyle, Hailey, Presley, Morgan, Brayson, Paisley, Alex, Savannah, Tristan, Isabella, Baileigh, Maci, and Ronan.

Donna is preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Morris (Morrie) A. Clyde; her mother, Helen Pugh; her father, Wilson (Bill) Arnold; her brother, Robert (Bob) Arnold, and sister, Lynn Ulrich.

Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the visitation and service, at Harry McKneely & Son Funeral Home, 2000 N. Morrison Blvd. Hammond, Louisiana 70401, on Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 10:00 am until the Funeral Service begins at 11:00 am.

A private memorial service and placement of ashes will be held, at a later date at Port Hudson Memorial Cemetery, located in Port Hudson, LA, where she will be reunited with her late husband Morrie.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be donated to the Leah Wilkinson Memorial Foundation, assisting local cancer patients in need and continuing Leah Wilkinson's legacy.
