Donnie was born Oc-

tober 11, 1941 in Garris-

on, ND to Nicholas and

Aurelia (Ulrich)

Schreiner. He was raised

and educated in Garrison,

graduating from Garrison

High School in 1959. Don-

nie enlisted in the US

Army on May 7, 1964 and

served two years during

the Vietnam War, being

discharged on May 6,


Donnie married Mar-

jorie Winn on March 27,

1967 at St. Nicholas

Catholic Church in Garris-on. They made their home

in Minot where he

worked for Warner Con-

struction. They later

moved to Garrison when

Donnie went to work at

Great River Energy. He re-

tired in December of 2010

at the age of 69.

Donnie was a member

of St. Nicholas Catholic

Church in Garrison, the

Knights of Columbus, and

was also a member of the

Garrison Fire Dept. for 16

years, later becoming an

honorary member. Donnie

enjoyed taking meticulous

care of his lawn and yard

and was often seen mow-

ing, spraying, or tinkering.

He also loved to go out to

“the farm”, helping with

anything that need to be

done. Deer hunting was

something he looked for-

ward to every fall as it

was always with his kids

and family, which as then

followed, of course, with

sausage making. He also

had one heck of a knack

for making sauerkraut!

There was also never a

time that Donnie was not

up for a cup of coffee and

a visit. He will be lovingly

missed by his wife, chil-

dren, family, and friends.
