Hermina Donoho, 87, of Sheridan, passed away on Monday, April 29, 2013 at her residence. She was born on October 23, 1925 in Miles City, MT. The youngest of fourteen children and the last remaining. She was a hard working daughter of Hermin and Marie Jilge and when you have that many brothers you are tough too.
The oldest was a girl and the youngest was Hermina. She spent most of her adult life in Glasco, MT until moving to Sheridan twenty six years ago. She had lived the last fifteen years at Heritage Towers.
Hermina learned to play games on the computer and was often yelling Bingo, and loved playing Rummy, Kings Corner and Rummy Cube. She often visited friends in the hospital and nursing homes. She had an outstanding memory for dates and numbers, and when you drove down the interstate and she saw a Montana car she always knew what the name of the county was by the number. She loved her scooter chair. She was a member of the First Baptist Church while in Glasco and now in Sheridan. She worked at the Valley Drug Store and Johnny Cafe in Glasco.
Her hero was John Wayne. She had t-shirts, mugs, glasses, pictures and clocks of his. Plus every movie he ever made.
She is preceded in death by her parents, a sister, twelve brothers, son Pete, and granddaughter Vicki. She is survived by her son Doug (Connie) Donoho of Burbank, CA, granddaughters, Lori Ann and Patty of Burbank, CA, grandson Anthony of Denver, CO, and her niece Mary DeTavernier of Sheridan, WY, great niece Tina (Jake) Evans of Buffalo, WY, and great great niece Katilyn Evans of Buffalo, WY.
