Donna Jean Trembly-Dorman (known as Bammy, Honey, & Honey-Amen), a long-time resident of Farmington, went to be with our Lord on October 26, 2019.
Donna was born on January 4, 1935 in Winston Salem, North Carolina to Isaac and Myrtle Ladd. From an early age, it was apparent that her love for children would bring her great joy and happiness throughout her entire life. She earned a certificate in business administration in 1983 and earned an Associate of Arts Degree in social work in 1993 from San Juan College. After a short period as a substitute teacher she was invited to teach second grade at Living Word Christian School where she taught for ten years.
She married the late Aubrey Warren in 1951, and they lived together in El Paso, TX, Carlsbad, NM, and made their final stop in Farmington. Married life brought three amazing children (Lee, Leonard, and Starla) whom she absolutely loved and adored.
Honey-Amen worshiped our Lord and Savior with an extreme faith and love. Sunday was her favorite day of the week and she consistently encouraged all her family and friends to join her at church, have lunch and go shopping! She adored spoiling her loved ones and was known to have little surprises at just the right times.
Bammy was immensely proud of her family, and made sure to show it by creating nothing but beautiful memories with all. She loved to cook and bake, she made the best deserts! Holidays were always celebrated in her home with an abundance of food and joy, surrounded by her family and friends.
Honey was the strongest woman in the family and was always there to listen and give great advice. She had so much love to share and later in life married her favorite companion, Walter “Red” Dorman who she spent her final years with. Those two could be found dancing away throughout the nights and traveling in their RV.
Donna will be greatly missed but always remembered for her beauty both inside and out.
Donna is survived by her Husband Walter; Sisters Judy Diaz, Carmen (Chris) Becraft; Children Ernest (Lois) Dorman, Lee (Claribell) Eddy, Leonard (Christine) Warren, Starla (Albert) Aranda; Grandchildren Wally D (Tammy) Dorman, Shauna Jean (David) Twist, Crystal Dorman, John (Lorie) Portell, Victoria Eddy, Sterling Eddy, Misty Eddy, Leo (Jacques) Warren, Brandyn (Amberly) Aranda, Mitchel Aranda; Great-Grandchildren Brianna Eddy, Solomon Eddy, Drayson Aranda, Isabella Eddy, Kyler “Donavin” Aranda, Liam Warren, Leo Warren Jr, Lorelei Warren; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister Bonnie.
A celebration of her life will be held on Friday, November 1st, 2019, at Emmanuel Baptist Church on 20th Street at 11 o’clock a.m. Donations may be made in her honor to the Bonnie Dallas Senior Center of Farmington, where she met her husband Walter.
Special thanks to her wonderful caretakers Starla Aranda, Southwestern Home Health, and Guardian Angel Home Health & Hospice.
