Donna Mae Mayer was born on January 6, 1936 in Streeter, North Dakota to parents Paul and Dorothy Hottman Mayer. She grew up and attended school in Streeter. She worked on an area farm and at the State Hospital in Jamestown, North Dakota. She also worked at a hotel in Washington and at the Missouri Slope Nursing Home for 15 years where she was known as the “white tornado”. Donna was very clean housekeeper and knew how to do the job the right way.

Donna was united in marriage to Elmer Weber on October 31, 1959. After their marriage, they lived in Cleveland, North Dakota and Jamestown before moving to a farm near Lengby, Minnesota in June of 1969.
