Donna married Charles “Bob” John- son on July 15, 1950 . “We ran off down to Arkansas with his cousin and my best friend Dixie. We told them I was 19 (I was 17) so we could get our marriage license,” said Donna. After getting mar- ried the couple lived with Bob’s parents in Bolivar until they were established and could move to their own home. Together the couple had one girl, Pamela Tate, and two granddaughters Maria Kaufman and Stephanie Frieze. Donna and Bob cele- brated 64 years of marriage until his death in 2015.
