Mrs. Reichardt was born March 4, 1933, in Evans, the daughter of George and Hassie Bell Harmon. At the age of two years, Donnis became ill with

Leesville High School in 1953, and received a music degree from Louisiana College in 1956. While assisting with activities for the military at the Serviceman’s Center at Leesville First Baptist Church, Donnis met the man who would be her husband for
52 years, Dr. Lowell K. Reichardt, Sr.
She served alongside her husband as he pastored for over 40 years; serving at Eastside Baptist Church in Colorado Springs, Co, Antioch Presbyterian Church, Quitman, First Baptist Church of
Jonesboro, Quitman Baptist Church in Quitman and Pollock First Baptist Church. They also served for a short time at Good Hope Baptist Church at Anacoco and Flactor Baptist Church in Hicks. Donnis served the Lord faithfully as she worked with
Children’s Choirs and served as church pianist. She touched the lives of many children and adults teaching voice and piano.
