ANNOUNCEMENTS

In Memory of Donna White Davis

Donna Davis, 83, of Marshalltown, Iowa went to be with her Lord and Savior and rejoined her husband Danny in Eternity on the morning of February 19, 2024 at Unity Point Health Marshalltown.

Services for Donna will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2024 beginning at 11:00 A.M. at the Mitchell Family Funeral Home. A visitation for family and friends will be held one hour prior to services. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to Donna’s family for a later designation. For additional information or to send a condolence to the family please visit www.mitchellfh.com or call 641-844-1234.

Donna Jean White was born October 26, 1940 in Marshalltown, Iowa. She was one of six children born to Walter and Florine (Marquis) White. Donna attended school in Marshalltown and graduated from Marshalltown High School which at the time is now the Miller Middle School in the Class of 1958. She continued some further education and received a certificate to be able to work within medical records.

Donna met Danny Davis and she had found her soulmate. She decided that he was the one for her and on December 21, 1969 they were united in marriage at the home of Donna’s sister Bonnie. She spent a career in medical records working at Marshalltown Medical and Surgical Center. After Marshalltown Medical and Surgical Center, she went on to Work at Member’s 1st Credit Union where she later retired from. She loved her job and the people that she worked beside. She and Danny were part of a Christian Biker Club and they took motorcycle trips all over the United States. A couple of her more memorable trips had to be going to Mount Rushmore and the Grand Canyon. She had a personality that gave off the grandma vibes to everyone.

Donna absolutely adored being a grandmother to her three grandchildren and her one great-granddaughter. She was a woman of Christian faith and was known to have a big heart by her family and friends. In her free time, she loved to work on gardening of flowers, going for walks and bike rides with her grandchildren on the bike trails that were close to her house, she enjoyed shopping and keeping up on the latest shopping trends and buying jewelry and other items from watching QVC. She was more reserved while also enjoying the nicer things in life. In addition, she  always liked a good meal with her family, especially cake, maidrites or an old-fashioned butterscotch malt.

She is survived by her son, Greg (Analyn) Smith; her grandchildren, Amber Smith, Breanna (Broderick Menzel) Smith, and Dylan Smith; her great-granddaughter Kirra Carson and her niece Jeannie.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Danny; her parents Walter and Florine White; and her siblings, Lawrence White, Ronnie White, Betty Baer, Bonnie Grabenbauer, and June Miles.

Watch out for bogus emails and scammers

I must have trashed at least 20 bogus emails this holiday season. It would be so easy to click on an email heading that reads like this, and I am a Kohls shopper: 

Koh's Winner Important for bev,You Are Our DECEMBER Winner You've Been Chosen

How exciting! I don't remember entering a contest there! When I looked to see if it was from Kohl's,that line read: 

From:

Kohls Winner <info_piyRuUIFJIJ@mecatnet.onmicrosoft.com>

Umm. I don't think Kohl's would use an email from onmicrosoft.com, and how believable is @mecatnet ? or info_ply ? 

Another reminder: Don't click on links in emails. Go directly to the website.

Global Cyber Security Awareness Month
and
International Fraud Awareness Week
 
 

No one wants to fall victim to a scam and knowledge is power. We identified scam tactics and provided tips to recognize red flags so you can keep yourself safe from scammers.

What you need to know about scams:

Scammers are calling, emailing or texting their victims’ impersonating employees of businesses, financial institutions and government agencies. Here are some tactics scammers use: 
  • A tech support company ‘representative’ informs you of fake computer issues and requests you send them money or grant them access to your computer. 
  • ‘Representatives’ from government agencies such as the IRS, FBI, Social Security Administration, or other officials, indicate you must take an action immediately. 
  • Falsified Caller IDs to convince you they are real. 
  • Urgent requests for you to send money via cryptocurrency, gift cards or money transfers to address a made up story or need. 
Five tips to prevent getting scammed:
  1. Legitimate companies and government agencies will never
    ask for payment in the form of gift cards, money transfers, or cryptocurrency.
  2. Never provide any personal or financial information to anyone who contacts you via an unsolicited email, phone call, or text message.
  3. Always remain cautious of callers using high-pressure tactics to get you to act quickly.
  4. If you’re unsure, hang up and call the company or agency directly using the number listed on their official website.
  5. Always keep all your software and antivirus programs up to date.
What to do if you’ve been scammed, or think you have:

If you have received any unsolicited calls, text or email matching the descriptions above, do not respond but take the following actions.

A generation that collected sports cards.
A generation that found, collected and washed & Returned empty coke bottles to the local grocery store for 5 cents each , then bought a Mountain Dew and candy bar with the money.
A generation that made paper toys with their bare hands.
A generation who bought vinyl albums to play on record players.
A generation that collected photos and albums of clippings of their life experiences as a Kid.
A generation that played board games and cards on rainy days.
A generation whose TV went off at midnight after playing the National Anthem.
A generation that had parents who were there.
A generation that laughed under the covers in bed so parents didn't know we were still awake.
A generation that is passing and unfortunately it will never return no matter how hard we try.
I loved Growing up when I did. it was the best of times.

 School Hymn

  Through the years at our MHS, 
  Red and blue will proudly fly;
  And the spirit of it lingers 
  As each year goes by.
  Many happy times together 
  Spent in perfect harmony
  All these memories we will cherish
  MHS of thee.

Lyrics by Marilyn Lawrence 
Music by Armon Adams
