Donna A. Bugglin

Donna Ardith Bugglin, age 89, of Senecaville, Ohio went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 to be reunited with her devoted husband Walter.

As a mother and grandmother, she was generous, loving and kind. She led by example and believed that

family was not always blood. She enjoyed cooking, watching her favorite Western channel and luncheons with her High School Graduating class; but mostly she loved any gathering of family and friends. Affectionately known as “Granny” to so many, she will be greatly missed. Donna was born March 6, 1933, in Roseville, Ohio to the late Everett Moody and Juanita Bishop Moody. She graduated from Roseville High School in 1951 and married the love of her life in 1953. She was a member of the North Terrace Church of Christ. Donna worked for many years as a decorator at the Nelson McCoy Pottery in Roseville and later as an instructor of ceramics at Starlight School in Zanesville.

She is survived by her son James Bugglin; daughter Anita (Don) Adams; grandchildren, David (Sarah)

Wilson, Jessica (Ben McManaway) Johnson, Kate (Candace Ritscher) Adams, Amanda (Luke) Lawrence; great-grandchildren, Leah Johnson, Brycen Wilson, Elora Wilson, Kailyn Lawrence, Maren Lawrence, Lily McManaway, Ollie Pedraza, Theo Pedraza, Emma Pedraza; a special niece Lori (Jeff) Geiger; sisters-in-law, Alice “Bunny” West, Dorothy Bugglin, Ruth Bugglin; several nieces, nephews, cousins and other “family” members and many friends. She loved you all. “Family isn’t defined only by last names or by blood: it’s defined by commitment and by love”.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Bugglin; sister Myrna

Bush; sisters-in-law, Helen Cosgrave, Florence Wayne, Clara Bugglin, Grace Bugglin; brothers-in-law, Orville Bush, Harold Bugglin, Charles Bugglin, John Bugglin, Richard West.
