Donna (Teannie) Mae Hancock (Buckner)




Donna was born to the late Ray and Edna Buckner on March 2, 1953 at their home in Success, Missouri. She passed in her home, surrounded by family, on April 8, 2019 at the age of 66.
In 1969 she gave birth to her daughter, Tina Sue Sutton (Romine). She married Clayton Daniel (Danny) Hancock and started her life as a homemaker and farmers wife at the Ellis Prairie Baptist Church on April 27, 1979. They shared nearly 40 years together in the area as husband and wife.  Donna and Tina received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior during the summer of 1980 at Success Baptist Church and were baptized on Dec 28, 1980.  Danny, Donna and Tina later became members of and attended Ellis Prairie Baptist Church for several years.  Once her own daughter was grown, Donna was generally always accompanied by her niece, Teri Hancock, whom she shared a special bond with and was extremely close to.
Throughout life Donna deeply enjoyed time with friends and family.  She enjoyed trips to the horse races with sisters, playing volleyball at the school, or card games with friends on Friday nights.  Later in life she worked for several years at Walmart in Houston, until her health no longer allowed. She enjoyed those years and friendships tremendously.  Once her health faded and required frequent trips to St. Louis, she continued to make friends and became a favorite patient of several of the staff and doctors at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. 
Donna was preceded in death by her parents Ray and Edna, a brother Lonnie McKee and her father-in-law Jerry Hancock.
She is survived by her husband Danny, a daughter Tina Sutton and husband Doug, and her mother-in-law June Hancock. Also surviving are 3 grandchildren: Dustina Cook and husband Cory, Kobe Sutton, Denay Green and husband Josh.  She is also survived by 3 sisters: Carolyn Daniel, Jean Rees, Kay Sullins and their spouses: 2 brothers: George Buckner and John Buckner and their spouses. Also surviving are 6 great grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.
