I am so sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. I met Donna when Stewart was In Juravinski Hospital and we have got together for coffee occasionally since then. I will miss her friendship and positive outlook. My sincere condolences.

Donna, we bought in August of 2003, and became back yard friends. We were told, a young lady has moved in behind you but "I think she has a boyfriend" We did finally meet Stu. Wonderful person. So helpful to us new neighbors from Toronto. Most of our conversations were over the back yard fence. Then in 2016 you lost Stu and 3 months later I lost my daughter (48). We bonded and started spending more time together. I loved our shopping and lunches together. You always picked me up. Always offering to take me to appts and help when I needed it. I remember one day I was attempting to weed. Next thing I knew you came in my back yard with shovel and garden tool box to help. Thanksgiving you came in and met all my family. They remember that. You were always so kind and loved life. Helpful in very way. I miss you so much. I stand on my back deck and look over to your swimming pool and ask "WHY" Love Sandy Williams

Dear Barb and family,
I can only imagine the depth of your sadness at losing Donna so suddenly. I pray that your memories of Donna ease you through this time.
I first got to know Donna as a work colleague in 1997 but that relationship quickly grew into a sure and deep friendship. I can’t fathom not being able to meet Donna for lunch at the William’s Cafe on the harbour front. She had a wonderful sense of humour and the softest and most caring heart of anyone I know. In our conversations, it was apparent that for Donna, her family was foremost .
With deepest sympathy,
Rita Murnaghan
