Donald William Smith was born in Oelwein on May 14, 1927 to parents Ferd and Mauna Smith.  He graduated from Oelwein High School with the class of 1945.  He then served his country honorably in the United States Navy during WWII.  In June of 1950 he was united in marriage with Verna Howell and they had two children.  Verna passed away in 1990.  Donald was a Tool & Die Maker and had been employed with Oelwein Tool & Die and Bachman Tool & Die.  He had also worked part-time with Paul Niemann Construction.  Donald was member of the American Legion.

Donald put his heart and soul into his job and family.  He enjoyed spending time with his two children and their families and friends at his cabin on the Mississippi.  In his younger years he enjoyed building projects including his cabin he built with his son, his pontoon houseboat, two houses, two pool tables and doll houses and toy boxes for his grandchildren; as well as various other projects.  In later years he enjoyed outings, going to the Coliseum, and going to the park with his great-grandchildren and puppies.  He also enjoyed going for drives (Dairy Queen being his favorite destination), playing cards, Jenga and Yahtzee, lovingly harassing the Arlington Place staff, and watching the birds and deer outside his window.

Left to celebrate Donald’s life are his children: Gary (Mary) Smith of Oelwein and Kathi (Bruce) Behrens of Oelwein; his granddaughter Brooke (Jacob) Dudley of Oelwein; his great-grandchildren: Lainey, Brynley, Hudsyn and Mavrick of Oelwein; his sister Jean Smith of Albuquerque, NM; his brother Jim Smith of Indiana; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife Verna; three brothers and four sisters.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Cedar Valley Hospice for their amazing care, kindness and compassion given to Donald and his family.  They would also like to thank the Arlington Place staff that cared for and loved their Dad.

You can get your ex back and cure your infertility problems with Dr. Odunga

When I met Dr. Odunga, my husband had divorced me because I was a barren woman of 41 and I have been married for 21 years. I was devastated and confused as a woman of my age until I went online to look for help on how to get my marriage back then I met Dr. Odunga. Within 48 hours of contacting him, my ex husband came back home and pleaded for me to forgive him and take him back after 5 months of divorce. I accepted him back and then I told Dr. Odunga of my bareness for him to help me. He did the spell for fertility and after 48 hours of completing it, I conceived. My husband got me pregnant and I gave birth to a baby girl.
Presently, I am a mother of a beautiful baby girl and I am happy in my relationship. This is all thanks to Dr. Odunga and his wonderful work. Contact Dr. Odunga Via Whats-App number +2348167159012. Email at: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

My husband left me to be with another woman after 9years of marriage, he traveled for a business trip and didn't want to come back home again to be with his family, I looked for help when I came across Dr OKU, a Powerful spell caster. I explained my situation to him and it was revealed that my husband had been bewitched by the other woman, that's why he had forgotten about home, Dr OKU made a spell and my husband was released from the bondage and I'm happy he is back home after 3years of separation. okutemple@gmail.com and you can also text him via WhatsApp on +2348163425519

I can only imagine what others have been through in the hands of these fraudulent individuals pretending to be cryptocurrency traders & miners. I just had a lifetime experience with them after meeting someone who claims to be an account manager and could help me make huge returns from my investments. I invested a lot of money with them and when it was time to withdraw my profits, they logged me out of my account and told me to put more money into their account. It was already too late before I realize they were swindlers, I had already lost $383,000 worth of Bitcoin to their fraudulent platform. I was depressed and embarrassed, but I started looking for ways to recover my stolen money and I came across an article about a company Cyberwall Fire which has helped thousands of people recover their money from fraudulent transactions, I don’t know how they did it but Cyberwall fire was able to recover my money in 72 hours. Cyberwall Fire is a reputable company and you can contact them with the following information:

I almost lost my life after falling victim to a scam that went on for weeks, I got contacted by a lady pretending to be a Forex trader account manager, told me I’ll make huge profits if I invest on her platform not knowing that I was being targeted, I started making investments through bitcoins until it was time to withdraw and they insisted I had to pay 20% to withdraw my money and it was then I knew I was being swindled. Unfortunately, I had already put $90,000 into this investment scam. While I was wallowing in depression, I came across an article about a company Cyberwall Fire that can help me recover my money, I didn’t hesitate to contact them, they took some information from me and to my surprise, all my money was recovered within 48 hours. I’m truly grateful to Cyberwall fire for their professionalism in helping me recover my money. If you have lost money to any of these scams, I’ll recommend them to you.

I got conned recently by a cryptocurrency trader to who I got connected online. It got me depressed for weeks until a friend of mine told me about Cyberwallfire, a team of professional hackers who helped him to recover his stolen bitcoins two years ago. I contacted them immediately and provided all the information they asked for, and within 48 hours, all the money that I lost in bitcoins investing in a fake cryptocurrency platform was recovered completely. I’m super excited and decided to share this information with everyone. Cyberwallfire was very helpful and quick in recovering my funds, they are very efficient and trustworthy. I urge everyone who has previously been conned online to reach out to them to recover their money. Reach them directly at cyberwallfire(@)techie.com

Hi everyone, I'm here to testify about a powerful spell caster (LORD SHAIBU) who helped me get my ex back. I was so depressed and devastated when my Ex left me. It was like my entire world was vanishing into sorrow and pain. I wanted him back so desperately. A friend of mine told me about this powerful spell caster (LORD SHAIBU) who helped her in the past, i was skeptical at first until I came across a post online about this same spell caster (LORD SHAIBU). I contacted him and he promised to get my ex back to me. True to his words, he brought my Ex back. My Ex came back to me and apologized for everything and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I am forever grateful to LORD SHAIBU.

FIX YOUR CREDIT SCORES AND CLEAN ANY CRIMINAL RECORDS

Hello everyone, I would love to share with you how I had a criminal record that deprived me of so many opportunities alongside 17 hard inquiries and about 13 derogatory items which messed up my report and lowered my credit score too low 460 (TransUnion) 380 (Equifax).
I couldn't meet up with so many payments and I was in debt from the bank and my friends, it was going to ruin my life until I came across an article just like this one online about WarDrivers Cyber Service and how they can help me with a clean record, I thought it was all a faux but something told me to give it a try and after 48 hours, my record was wiped clean and my credit was brought up to 810. I'm super excited and I strongly recommend WarDrivers Cyber service to anyone who might this. Contact WarDrivers at EMAIL: (wardriverscyberservice@techie. com) WhatsApp: +1 ( 6 1 6) 8 9 8-7 2 8 5

I never knew there was a great possibility for me to have my man back to me until I met DR ISIKOLO. It was really tough on me when my boyfriend left me for another lady. I was devastated and couldn't get myself back. His friends and family did all they could to reunite us but it proved abortive. I was alone for some months and could not see myself loving another. So i had to seek help from DR ISIKOLO who gave me the privilege to ensure my heart desires was granted. He reunited us and the love and happiness was restored. His words is his bound and he never fails when he promises anyone 48 hours of getting the result which amazed me when my own result manifested. Don't bother seeking help elsewhere. Contact him now. His email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or text him via WhatsApp: +234-8133261196.
