Obituary for Donna Gene Eden

Donna Gene Eden, 72, of Greenwood, passed away on November 6, 2017. She was born September 14, 1945 in Indianapolis, IN to Ernest A. and Florence K. Sweet. Having grown up on the south side, Donna graduated from Southport High School with the Class of 1963. After raising her children in Greenwood, then Sheridan, IN, she eventually returned to the south side, where she was most recently a member of Southport Presbyterian Church. What she cherished most in life were God and her faith, being with family and friends, meeting new people who may have known people she knew, cats and dogs living together, good Indiana country cooking, good music(including classical), and sunbathing. She married C. Barry Eden in the summer of 1965, who preceded her in death in November of 1987, and to whom she remained devoted for the rest of her life. She was also preceded in death by her daughter Kari, who was lost while still in the womb. She is survived by her four children: Kimberly Coffey, Brian Eden, Lori Hughett, and Andrew Eden; her six grandchildren: Lexi Coomes, Kira Coffey, Kaleb Eden, Kyle Eden, Noah Kennedy, and Dylan Kennedy; her brother and sister-in-law Dr. and Mrs. James A. Sweet; several members of her extended family; and several friends, including those from the Sheridan United Methodist Church; the Sheridan Church of God; and Indiana Ministries, where she was employed from February 1988 to December 1996. Visitation will be on Friday, November 10, 2017 from 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM at G.H. Herrmann Madison Avenue Funeral Home, 5141 Madison Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46227.
