Donna was born on July 11, 1943, to Glenn and Anna Smith in Denver, Colorado. At the age of 3 her family moved to their ranch in the Eden Valley of Wyoming. Donna graduated from Eden/Farson High School in 1961 and shortly after married the love of her life, Dwain L (Bud) Booth. They shared 59 years together as husband and wife.

Donna and Bud began their married life together in Albany, Georgia, where their oldest daughter, Shellie, was born. After being discharged from the Air Force in 1962, they relocated to Lander Wyoming where their second daughter, Cheryl, was born. The young family moved from Lander to Shoshoni and then settled in Evanston, Wyoming, where Donna’s youngest daughter, Kerry, was born.
