Shortly after high school, she met the love of her life, Earl Brougher and they wed on April 7, 1956. Married for over 40 years, Donna and Earl had three children, Teresa, Robert and Diane. In 1964, the family moved to Rancho Cordova where Donna began taking courses at Sacramento State University and later went on to earn her teaching credential.

Now joined with her true love Earl and rejoicing with the angels, Donna leaves behind her daughters Teresa Dean and Diane Eisenhour along with her son Robert Brougher; eight grandchildren, Lisa, Janet, Eugene, Wayne, Allison, Chip, Kyle and Cassie and four great-grandchildren, Olivia, Noah, Jack and Mabel.
