Donna Kay (Sides) Tschacher passed away on March 3, 2022, in Boise, Idaho.

Donna was born Oct. 21, 1936 to Stewart and Alice (Calhoun) Sides in Lusk. She graduated from Lusk High School in 1955, where she met and married the love of her life Floyd A. Tschacher on April 14, 1956, after he had graduated from Army basic training. They would stay married for 62 years.

Donna lived as an Army wife until Floyd retired from the Army in 1979. They were stationed in Germany and several bases in the U.S. during that time.

Donna loved Boise and was a faithful Boise Bronco football fan. She loved to watch the games and cheer the Broncos to victory.

After retiring for the second time, they sold their home and traveled full time in their Airstream Motor home going to all 50 states and Canada. After 10 years they again settled down in Boise, buying a new home in 2010.
