She married Lyle Charles Butler in 1951 in Westboro, Missouri. They had three children: Linda, Catherine, and Patrick. Lyle passed away in 1971. Dona later married Byron Odell in 2005. He passed away in 2010.
Dona worked for the Department of Agriculture in Salt Lake City, Utah and later at HAFB. After retiring from HAFB, she sold real estate for a number of years. Dona enjoyed oil and water color painting, playing bridge and watching sports. She was an avid reader and a member of First Presbyterian Church of Ogden. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and enjoyed laughing and being silly with family at parties.

She is preceded in death by her parents, daughter, Linda, husbands, Lyle Charles Butler and Byron Odell, brother, Merrill Touretelotte, and granddaughter, Nicole Scadden.
