She touched many lives with her generosity, humour and passion for life. Donna also had a passion for animals, and loved visits with Stella, Paisley and Jerry her grand puppies. In her final years, Donna was a resident at Extendicare York where she was treated with respect, dignity and love.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made directly to the Parkinson’s Society. A Celebration of Donna’s life will take place at a later date.
