Donna was born in a small town in Missouri. Not long after her family moved out west to Blythe, Ca. At the age of 13 she gave her life to God and dedicated herself to His services. God called her to preach at the age of 14. At the age of 15 she met her husband of 66 years James Carl Mills and they were married three months later on March 26,1953. They had four children. It wasn’t long till the family began to travel across America and Old Mexico spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through word and song. Donna hosted hundreds of revivals some lasting weeks preaching the gospel to countless multitudes with many souls saved, healing of all kinds, deliverance and many other miracles. This was during the 60’s and 70’s. She was a dynamic preacher, singer and song writer and she continued on going wherever God called her even after her children started families of their own. In Corsicana, TX. while holding a revival the Mayor presented her with the Key to the City. She had such a free spirit and was not afraid of anything. She always said, “With the power and authority of God, she could go bear hunting with a switch. She lit up any room she stepped into. She was the life of the party and could always make you laugh. Her faith was so strong and you could feel the love of God radiate through her. She was selfless and she loved the unlovable. She was truly an amazing woman. HER FAMILY WAS HER TREASURE.
She is survived by her loving husband James Mills, her 4 children and their spouses and her 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Her oldest daughter Yvonne Mills Curtis and Randy, Her son Rick Mills and his son Jeremey Mills and Tracy and their children Zoe and Sophie. Her middle daughter Sherry Mills Ashworth and Joseph and their children Eric Ashworth and Shawn Ashworth and Eliza and their children Abigail, Jacelynn and Skyla. Her youngest daughter Debbie Mills Zambrano and her children Lacey Machado Mayhew and her children Angel and A.J., Tiffany Zambrano Ramos and her husband Seth, and Lance Zambrano.
