Donna Mae Salas

Donna Mae Salas, 88, formerly of Siloam Springs, passed away Friday, July 8, 2022 at Westwood Health & Rehab in Springdale, Arkansas.


Donna was born March 21, 1934 in Grove, Oklahoma to Clarence O’Neal and Lola Barnes-O’Neal. She was a long time resident of Siloam Springs and worked many years at Dawn Hill Country Club until obtaining her beautician license. As a hairstylist, she built an abundance of friendships during that career. She was creative and enjoyed quilting in her spare time. When she wasn’t working or sewing, she would travel around the United States. During her travels, she visited 48 of the states and would attend many glass art shows looking for new pieces to add to her glass art collection at home.


She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, friends, and many other loved ones.


A Celebration of Life will be held 1:00pm-4:00pm on Saturday, July 23 at Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home.

Donna Salas will be sorely missed. She was a sweet lady and I enjoyed visiting her at her home then by mail or phone as she aged . I am now aged and will miss her very much . May you all have many good remembrances of her. I know she appreciated and thanked folks for the smallest kindness. May she find good health in heaven with no pain or worries and get to see her beloved pets and loved ones. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Donna was dear neighbor to me and my mother for many years on Tahlequah street and Maxwell. She made cookies for my 2 daughters and made a quilt for each one of them who still cherish them today. She let them play on her piano and could talk your leg off. Rest In Peace Donna.
