Donna Claire Bingham, 76, went to be with her Lord and Savior on December 31, 2022. Donna was born on November 6, 1946 to Allen and Ruth Meeks. She was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Her family moved numerous times throughout her childhood because her father was a church planter. They finally moved to Anchorage, Alaska in 1960.
Donna married Donald Bingham on June 8, 1973, in Anchorage, Alaska. They established their home in Eagle River, Alaska, where they raised their four amazing children and made many friends.
Donna was a wonderful kindergarten and first grade teacher for six years. She chose to leave her career as an educator to pursue her passion of raising her children. She continued her love of educating children and guiding them to the Lord by teaching kindergarten Sunday school, directing VBS, leading children's choir, and running a daycare out of her home.
Donna is so well known and loved for many things. Her laughter and joy were absolutely contagious. She was a friend people could always count on and call on. Her artistic ability and bringing out the creative ability in others was such a blessing. Many of her art pieces done with her grandchildren will forever be treasured.
Donna is proceeded in death by her parents; sister, Marsha King; and her loving husband, Donald Bingham.
Left to cherish her memories are daughter, Lisa Million, her husband Doug, and their children, Tori and Hannah; son, Don Bingham, his wife Richan, and their children, Linzy, Devan, Kahlan and Alex and his wife Kaylee, and their children, Brantley, Ella and Hallie; daughter, Bethany Burkhalter, her husband Scott, and their children Tytus and Brody; daughter, Sabrina Bingham; brother, Steve Meeks; sisters, Beth Anderson; along with many family members, nieces and nephews, and in-laws who love her dearly.
