Donn E. Munz | 43

March 14, 1978 - October 29, 2021

Donn Elizabeth Walker Munz, 43, of Warrington, PA and formerly of St. Marys, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, October 29, 2021.

She was born March 14, 1978, in DuBois, PA, daughter of Beverly Delozier Walker and the late Donald Walker, who preceded her in death on June 2, 2006.  Donn grew up in St. Marys, was a graduate of Elk County Christian High School, Class of 1996 and was a graduate of Duquesne University.

On June 12, 2010, Donn married Miles Munz.

In addition to her mother and husband, Donn is survived by her daughters: Neve Elizabeth and Elle Rebekah, both at home; two sisters: Jennifer Brauser (Greg) of State College and Jackie Walker of Morgantown, WV; two nephews: Ben and Ethan Brauser of State College; her maternal grandmother: Jean Dunkelberger; her mother and father-in-law: Gail and Gary Munz; and by her brother-in-law: Bryce Munz.

In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother, Orma Walker.

Donn was a wife, daughter, sister, friend, but above all, a mother.  She would always put her girls first in her life and taught them, by example, how to love unconditionally.  Donn was ambitious, thoughtful, creative, intuitive, loving, honest, and fiercely loyal.  Donn was a gentle soul and looked for the beauty and good in everything and everyone.  She has always had the ability to find peace within music, lyrics, and quotes.  “May the four winds blow you safely home”.

There will be no visitation.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial which will be held in the Sacred Heart Church on Friday, November 5, 2021 at 11:00 AM with Rev. Matthew Laffey, OSB, officiating.  Burial will follow in St. Mark’s Catholic Cemetery in Emporium.

  2. I knew Donn through work, she was always so happy and she beamed when talking about Neve and Elle. I saw her as a rep for my rheumatologist office and a friend. She will be missed. I’m so sorry to hear about her passing. Prayers for Miles and her beautiful girls.

  3. The most gentle human being full of love and complete acceptance for everyone. She inspired me as a mother, woman and a professional in so many ways. Her devotion to her children and family was so deep and pure, which I took inspiration from. She has touched our lives in the most special way and will be cherished forever. Our heart and prayers go out to Donn’s family and daughters.

  4. We are so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you all and praying for peace and comfort in God’s loving arms.

  5. Donn was as genuine and gentle a person as anyone that I have ever known. Her love for her girls, family, and friends was evident to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. She will be deeply missed by so many. Praying for her beautiful daughters and for her family.

  6. I struggle to come up with the correct words to express my sympathy, I hope there may be some comfort knowing so many are thinking of Donn’s family and friends and we will be thinking of you all for a long time to come.

  7. So sorry to hear about Donn passing. There are many memories I have of us when we were growing up. I remember playing house with her amazing baby dolls, playing with the kittens on the farm, or making prank phone calls. What I learned about Donn when we were young was she was going to be a great mom one day. She was a good person and friend. May the memories you share bring comfort to you. Thinking of all of you and keeping you in my prayers.

  8. My heart is broken at the loss of this beautiful soul. She was truly one of the kindest, most loving and accepting people I knew. Her heart was pure gold and it showed in so many ways. My deepest sympathies to her family, her mother and sisters, Miles and those beautiful girls. You are all in my heart and prayers.

  9. Love and prayers go out to all of Donn’s family and friends. I am heartbroken that the world has lost such a beautiful soul. Donn was a passionate, fierce, genuine, loving, and a loyal friend. Her kindness was sincere but she would go to battle for those she loved and I can tell you that personally, she rallied for me. Her silly laugh that changed into a nerdy guffaw rings in my ears and was infectious. Her beauty and heart will live on in her daughters.

  10. Our sincere condolences to all of the Brauser, Walker and Munz families. We love you guys and have made a donation to the Jana Marie Foundation in memory of Donn.

  11. Jackie and Jennifer, I’m so sorry for your loss. Donn was a lovely person, and she will be greatly missed. My heart breaks for all of you, but especially her girls. Sending our condolences and prayers to the entire Munz and Walker family.

  12. Sending prayers and strength to all! Our hearts and strength go out to your family. It’s been a while since we saw each other but we chatted a bit online most recently about what products we used for our curly hair. When one of us found a new product that worked we would share it and get so excited! I extend my sympathies to Miles, Neve, Elle, Bev, and to every family member. Prayers, strength, and love to all… God Bless Donn and everyone in her circle.

  13. There are just no words that do justice in describing the loss of such a beautiful, gentle, compassionate, and loving person Donn was.

My thoughts and prayers are flooding the gates of heaven, for all those who loved her.

  14. My deepest condolences to Donn’s family and friends. During our school years, I knew that she was someone whose kindness and gentleness extended to everyone regardless of who they were or who they were not (or whether they even took good notes in class that day). May your memories of Donn and the time that you shared together bring you solace in this difficult time.

  15. There are no words to convey our sorrow for your families’ loss. What we do have are the memories of being neighbors and watching our children grow and become wonderful successful adults. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal”

  18. A stunning beauty who carried herself with grace, humility, kindness and a warmth to her that would make you immediately like her…which is exactly how I felt the first time I met her. Though our paths didn’t cross often, I enjoyed watching her share pictures and stories about her girls via Facebook…there was NO QUESTION how much she adored her girls and having a family. I last spoke with her this past spring and her passion for motherhood and her fierce love for her family was the entire focus of our conversation. She will be remembered as someone who loved BIG and deeply.
