Donna Norrine Gamache was born on November 13, 1926 in Clayton, Wisconsin. She was one of a set of twins born to Victor and Daisy (Spring) Baker. She graduated from Turtle Lake High School in 1946. Being one of nine children Donna could always find something to keep herself busy. On July 25, 1946 she was united in marriage to Burtrum Gamache and together they had two children, Arthur and Bonnie. They made their home in Range, Wisconsin and she worked for Fabri-tek in Amery for 7 years. Her husband preceded her in death in 1970. She moved into the twin cities and she worked at the Army ammunition plant in New Brighton, Minnesota. She later took a job at Federal Cartridge and returned to her home in Range, Wisconsin. She was an active member of the Elim Lutheran Church in Range and enjoyed planting flowers around the Church. She enjoyed taking care of her own yard and maintaining her flower gardens there as well.
