Donna Mae Loken was born on June 18, 1934 in Minneola Township, the daughter of Harold and Cora (Berg) Loken. She graduated from Zumbrota High School in 1952. She married Arley Hinrichs on May 14, 1955 at Lands Lutheran Church in Zumbrota. They operated a small dairy farm north of Zumbrota for the next 35 years.

Along with raising their four children, Donna worked various jobs that included Mayo Clinic and Seneca Foods. In the mid 70's she was a cook for the Zumbrota Hospital before transitioning to the dietary manager position at Zumbrota Health Services a few years later. She was an active member of Christ Lutheran Church and was a volunteer for Meals on Wheels. She enjoyed baking, was an avid gardener, and loved to attend her grandchildren's school activities.
