Donnita Denise Acuff, born September 9, 1966, passed away at the NW Medical Center at 11:31 p.m. on July 21, 2022. She is resting safely in in the arms of Jesus.
Donnita worked several jobs, but the one she loved the most was the 12 years she worked at West Campus. She made so many friends there from tots to teens to adults. She had such a sweet and lovable personality you could not help but love her. She had a heart of gold; holding a grudge was just not possible for her.
She is survived by her mother, Donna Cornett of Prairie Grove, Ark.; one son: Dallas Lynn Gilley of Springdale, Ark.; her brother and sister-n-law, Danny and Nancy Johnson of Tahlequah, Okla.; two grandchildren: Adaline and Hunter; her aunt and uncle, Audie and Melodie Dennis of Joplin, Mo.; her aunt and uncle, Don and Connie Livengood, of Ignacio, Colo.; two nephews: Devon Johnson of Clarksville, Tenn., and Shawn Butler of Sedan, Kan.
On her biological dad's side, she is survived by one half-sister: Tisha Dawn Barran of Prairie Grove, Ark.; one half-brother: Shawn of Springdale; two uncles: Buddy and Eddie Johnson of Fayetteville, Ark.; and two aunts: Connie Johnson Taylor and Sharon Land of Prairie Grove, Ark.
She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Beulah Nadine Dennis; her niece, Brittney Allen Johnson; her stepdad, Scott Sherman Dorsey; her biological dad, Danny Joe Johnson; her biological grandparents, Paul and Velma Johnson; and three uncles: Huston (Sonny), Jerry, and Harley Johnson.
There will be a private memorial service for close friends and family. The details are yet to TBD and will be posted on Facebook when decided.
Donnita was a loving, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend. She was so sweet, kind, and forgiving, and will always be remembered in our hearts.
