From the Asheville Citizen-Times
Donna Ruth Randolph Riddle, 52, of Asheville, died on Sunday, May 16, 2010.
A native of Chattanooga, Tenn., Donna was the daughter of Mary Grace and Bob Randolph. Donna had a passion for trucks all of her life, and she had worked in the trucking industry for 32 years. She was known as the legendary Grannymozes to truckers around the world. For the past eight years, she was the owner of Grannymozes, Inc., a bulk dump truck company.
Donna loved seeing the world and telling her story along the way. She was a member of Large Car Mag, and also a member of Dispatch Me Home.
She also had a passion for poetry, and loved writing poems and stories. Her words were like a soft spoken melody. She would read her poetry at local venues so that people would hear her angel-like words. She dedicated the last eight years to the love of her life, her grandson Kaleb, who brought her more joy than all of the above.
In addition to her parents, Donna is survived by her husband, Powell Eugene Gene Riddle; daughter, Morgan Kyndall Riddle of Asheville; brothers, Michael and Richard Randolph, both of Cleveland, Tenn.; grandmother, Beulah Rayburn of Rossville, Ga.; and grandson, Kaleb Eugene Riddle.
