Donna Mae Taylor was born in Verden, Oklahoma on July 28, 1928 to James Bascom Taylor and Anna Belle Mann Taylor. During the Depression period the family moved around as her father sought employment opportunities and finally settled in Fort Worth where Donna attended and graduated from Paschal High School in January 1947. She was employed by American Airlines at Meacham Field, Fort Worth and worked in the Communication Department before attending business school in Fort Worth to continue her education and secretarial skills on her resume. The investment in training opened several job prospects and  she was hired by General Dynamics in Fort Worth, where she also met William “Bill” Henry Hites.
