LaDonna Bice, age 73, of Litchfield, MN, formerly Mahnomen, MN, died on Monday, May 24, 2021 at the Meeker Manor in Litchfield.

LaDonna Mae Bice, the daughter of Fern (Roy) and Robert Bice, was born on May 28, 1947, the eldest of seven siblings. As a child she moved several times but spent many years in California before returning to the Minneapolis, MN area. LaDonna had a love for travel and was incredibly spontaneous. Her wanderlust led her on many adventures throughout the United States. She enjoyed working at various part time positions, her favorites being at the MN State Fair and with carnivals in local communities. LaDonna married a few times but didn't settle down for long. Eventually, she moved to the White Earth Reservation to make her home. She lived in Mahnomen, Beaulieu, Bagley, and Detroit Lakes, MN for several years. Donna was raised in the Catholic faith and was blessed to have a true relationship with her Lord. As the years went by, Donna gave her heart to Jesus Christ as her savior. A few years ago, Donna moved to Litchfield to be closer to family.

LaDonna had a true zest for life. She loved singing karaoke and was known for her delightful Patsy Cline. She spent many hours at the Casino and attending concerts with friends. LaDonna enjoyed playing pool, and more recently, getting special treats from her favorite restaurants. Although she had no children of her own, Donna cherished her nieces and nephews. She was feisty, sassy and very loyal to those she loved. She held her family near to her heart and will be greatly missed.

LaDonna is survived by one sister, Carol (Jerry) Skinaway of St. Paul, MN; two brothers, Jim (Hye) Bice of Evans, GA, and David Bice of Blaine, MN; one sister-in-law; Sharon; and many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.
