Donna Klepper Obituary

Donna Klepper of Huron, Ohio died at her home on Friday, February 9, 2024, at the age of 102.

Parents Eleanor (Batch) and Harold (Bill) Kreck welcomed Donna Rose to this world on June 20, 1921. John Krock became her stepfather. Donna was valedictorian of the Huron Class of 1938 and was skilled in shorthand and typing, having worked several years for the law office of Flynn, Py & Kruse.

In 1945, Donna married Robert (Gabby) Klepper, a sailor who had served in W. W. II. In 1950 they built their Old Homestead home. There they raised daughter Joanie.  Both Joanie and Gabby predeceased Donna and she dearly missed them.

Donna was witty and fun. She and Gabby enjoyed dancing at Cedar Point Ballroom and Singara Grotto. They hosted family beach gatherings. Donna was an avid bowler and golfed until age 89.  She performed altar duties at Christ Church and loved flowers and animals. With the support of her church family, Joanie’s friends, her neighbors, her friend Mary, and a homecare team, Donna was able to remain at home until the end.   

Donna is survived by her cousin, Barbara Daniels; Godsons, Richard and Robert Leber; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins of the Batch and Klepper clans. 

Family and friends may call on Friday, February 16, 2023, from 10 AM until the time of service at 11 AM at Christ Episcopal Church, 120 Ohio St., Huron 44839. Burial will follow at Scott Cemetery, 9110 Huron Avery Rd., Huron.
