Donna Lynne Ebarb

May 21, 1944 — March 17, 2023

Donna Lynne Ebarb, 78, lifelong resident of Beaumont, passed into eternal rest on March 17, 2023, at her home in Beaumont. She now has joined her husband, Logan Ebarb who passed 4 years earlier.

A graveside service will be held 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, March 22, at Haven of Rest Cemetery, in Beaumont. She will be laid to rest next to her husband of 56 years. Officiating will be Ken Penry and Rick Penry.

Visitation will be from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, at Claybar Kelley Watkins Funeral Home in Beaumont.

Born in Beaumont, Texas, on May 21, 1944, she was the daughter of V.T. Kelley and Kathryn Elizabeth (McCauley) Kelley. Donna graduated from Beaumont High School in 1962 and married Logan a short time later. She was a housewife for several years until she went to work for Gibson’s Mercantile store on 11th street. She was employed there for over 30 years, until the store was closed, and then she went to work at the Dollar General on Phelan until her retirement. Donna and Logan weren’t blessed with children of their own but she was like a Mom & Dad to their nieces and nephews. She was a very high spirited, fun loving person that will be missed greatly by her surviving family.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband Logan Ebarb; and parents, V.T. and Kathryn Kelley.

She is survived by her cousins, Cindy Adcock and husband John, Brenda Ewing and husband Fred.

Honorary pallbearers are Ken Penry, Rick Penry, Mark Ebarb, David Ebarb, Mitchell Revill, Johnathan Bomhold, and Jim Cox.

Her family would like to extend a special thank you to the Hospice Care Team of Beaumont, especially nurse Amanda Garrison.
