WALTERBORO: Mrs. Donella “Donnie” Craven Wilmoth, wife of the late Frank Wilmoth, died Tuesday afternoon at Roper Hospital in Charleston. She was 67.
“Donnie” was born July 29, 1949 in Pontiac, Michigan, a daughter of the late Harland Burk Craven and Shirley Arbutis Craven. For many years, she and her late husband were fixtures at Duke’s Barbeque in Walterboro, where they both supported the business in any way possible. Their smiling faces and outgoing personalities welcomed both locals and travelers alike. She and her “soulmate” Frank enjoyed riding motorcycles and attending car shows. She was an active member of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
She is survived by two daughters, Kimberly Young of Oscoda, Michigan, and Danielle Fraser of Walterboro. There are three brothers: Darrell Gene Craven and Michael Harlan Craven, both of Jedburg, and Douglas Lee Craven of Houghton Lake, Michigan. She has three grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
