Jan. 5, 1931 – May 9, 2012
Donna slipped away on May 9th at the home of her daughter, Debra, with her daughters, Debra and Diane, in attendance, and her son, Daniel, keeping vigil close by. Many of her family were able to visit her from the time of her diagnosis of cancer and her death, approximately a one month period. She appreciated the visits from each and every one.
Her children think of her as an amazing mom, her colleagues as an amazing nurse and hospital administrator. Donna was a great mom and good friend, to her own children, as well as to friends of her children.
The only thing better than having you as our mother, was our children having you as a grandmother and great-grandmother. Donna was, indeed, an incredible influence on her children, grandchildren, friends, colleagues, and many others. Wow, Mom, you made a difference in a large number of lives. Good for you! You have left your mark.
During the course of her working career, she was Matron of the Bralorne Hospital, RN and Supervisor at Campbell River & District General Hospital, and RN and Administrator at 100 Mile House & District General Hospital.
There will be no service. A family gathering to spread Mom’s ashes will be held sometime over the summer.
