Jessica Donaldson Obituary

Our loving daughter, mother and sister, Jessica Colleen Ealey-Donaldson, age 47, went to be with the Lord on January 11, 2024, from her home in Cardington. She was born November 7, 1976, to Timothy M. Ealey and Varance (Moodispaugh) Ealey in Marion, Ohio.

Jessie was a 1996 graduate of Cardington-Lincoln High School and a lifelong resident of Cardington where she was raised by her loving mother and Mike Willey. Jessie was known for her love of animals, particularly horses. She was an active member of the 4-H and loved Friday night horse shows and showing at the county fair. She took her skill of riding horses all the way to the Ohio State Fair competing with her horses. She loved all animals, taking in and rehoming everyone she could. Her generosity and love extended to every person she met, and she knew no stranger. Her infectious smile and contagious laughter drew many to her for friendship and her friends will deeply miss her. Jessie was known to go out of her way to help anyone who needed it, even if it meant giving her last dollar away. Family was everything to Jessie, and she treated everyone like family. He had a strong belief in God and doing what she could to help others.

Jessie was known as a hard worker, never hesitating to roll her sleeves up and dig into whatever needed to be done. It didn't matter what the job was. Most recently she was a Purchase agent at the Dollar Tree Warehouse.

Jessie is going to be terribly missed her mother Varance (Mike Willey) Ealey, her two sons, Mason Trevino and Gregory Donaldson Jr., her sisters Leigh Ealey and Amie (Matt) Crum, and her husband Greg Donaldson Sr. As well as her niece's and nephew's, Phil Ealey Jr, Elizabeth Crum, Dakota (Shon) Elswick, Dallas Crum, Maci Morgan, and Isabelle Crum.

Jessie was preceded in death by her grandparents Benjamin and Almeda Ealey and Charles and Mary Ruth Moodispaugh, her father Timothy Ealey and her brother Phillip Ealey.
