Donna Marie (Wirtner) Ahlgren, formally of 115 Linwood Ave., Jamestown, N.Y., and 4400 Waxhaw Indian Trail Road, Indian Trail, N.C., passed away Monday, Jan. 11, 2021.

Donna was born in Jamestown on Aug. 29, 1937, to John and Georgia Firth Wirtner. She was the oldest daughter of four children.

She is survived by her two sons, Kelly Ahlgren (Joan) of Greenville, S.C., and Wilmington N.C., and Barry Ahlgren (Rose Ann) of Indian Trail, N.C.; two sisters, Hazel Wirtner of Surprize, Ariz., and Roberta (Andy Gardner) of Ken-more, N.Y.; six grandchildren: Mary (Joe) Konci-kowski of Seattle WA, Lisa (Chris) Taylor, Jonathan Ahlgren and Christopher Ahlgren all of North Carolina and Joshua and Karin Marie Ahlgren of S.C.

She also has seven beautiful great-grandchildren who she wished she could have enjoyed all every day. Donna recently lived at Brookdale Park of Weddington, N.C., where she was enjoying making new friends and being part of a community again.

She was proceeded in death by her husband of 63 years, Rudy Ahlgren; sister, Rita Carson; mother, Georgia Wirtner; son, Tracy Ahlgren; and her father, who passed many years ago.

Donna lived in Jamestown her whole life until moving to North Carolinia in 2017 when Rudy was too ill to take care of him-self.

Before Donna’s retirement she worked for Quality Markets in the stores and the office as an accounts payable manager, Sterling Mfg. as their payroll accountant, and Evans Skate-land in the restaurant.

She received her AAS in Accounting from JCC in 1981 alongside her son Kelly and Daughter in Law Rose Ann. Donna was very proud of that achievement and told everyone she graduated with her kids. She enjoyed playing Bingo and going to the casino every chance she got to get away. This was something she missed being in NC the last few years.

She enjoyed reading, playing casino games on her phone and being around her family. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends.

No funeral arrangement have been made at Donna’s request, but her family will have a Celebration of Life this summer when the pandemic allows.
