Donna and I worked together for many years at the Memorial Hospital. We travelled to the Bahamas, Mexico with some of the girls we worked with and always had so much fun. We also enjoyed many plays in Grand Bend, Stratford, Port Stanley.

She is at peace now.

Deeply Saddened

Dear Barb and Ray,

I was so sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. I have known Donna for many, many years as she and my sister Linda were lifelong friends. I pray that her suffering wasn’t long and that her and Linda are enjoying many laughs together again. She was a good and kind soul. May she Rest In Peace.

Kindest regards

Louise and family

I am so sorry to here of Donna,s passing. She was a lovely Lady. When we last spoke just before Christmas you were saying that she had gotten worse and could not eat or drink much and was suffering a lot and when she was still at home you were there every day helping her to try and eat etc. She is now in the arms of the Lord and no more suffering.

My deepest of Sympathies to you and all your Family.

Your Friend Carolyn Fletcher

so sorry to hear
