Donna Mae Hulke was born May 21, 1938 to Alfred and Luella (Kohn) Hulke in New Ulm. She graduated from New Ulm High School and married the love of her life, Ron Kollmann, on September 28, 1956 at the Courtland Evangelical Lutheran Church in Courtland. Donna spent most of her life providing for her children as a homemaker. She also worked as a bookkeeper for Ron’s electric business, Kollmann Electric, for 42 years. When she was not working or raising her family, Donna and Ron raised paint horses, went bowling, and played bingo. They especially enjoyed going on vacations and trips, many of which Donna won from entering sweepstake giveaways. Donna was a member of the Courtland Martha Circle and an active church member at the Courtland Evangelical Lutheran Church. Above all else, Donna treasured all the time she was able to spend with her family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Although she may no longer be with us, her contagious smile and laughter will never be forgotten. Blessed be her memory.
