Donna Manriquez

Obituary of Donna Marie Manriquez

Donna Manriquez “Idaho Donna” of Hayden, Idaho passed away February 22, 2024, in the care of Hospice following a battle with cancer.  She was surrounded by those she loved the most in her final days.

Donna was born in St. Maries, Idaho to Deanna Dewald Reep and Kenneth Reep.  Donna later moved to Libby, Montana where she married Forest Martell and had two children before moving back to St. Maries.  She moved to Georgia to be closer to her daughter in 1997 where she made many friends before moving back “home” to North Idaho.

Donna worked in several fields during her life but her work for the US Forest Service at Middle Sister Lookout and later as a firefighter were what she always loved.  She had a huge love of the outdoors and road trips to the mountains.

Donna is survived by her daughter Katherine (Brian) Owen of Cohutta, Georgia, son Ronald Martell, and two grandchildren who she adored, Stefanie and Michael, many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Stanley Reep and Ronald Reep.

There will be a very small, private celebration of life at a later time for close family and friends to take Donna home to her much-loved Middle Sister.
