WALC, Donna (nee Zelek) - 1944 - 2017 With great sadness and regret, Donna passed suddenly on October 4, 2017 in Collingwood. Devoted mother of Dr. Leslie Walc and his wife Jaclyn, and most proud grandma (Babcia) to Azalea, Lucas and Chloe. Cherished sister of the late Maryanne Hrycanuk and husband Johnny, Susan Burak and late husband Lawrence and Dr. Walter Zelek and wife Daiga. Loving aunt and great-aunt. Donna cherished her career as teacher and VP educator for elementary students with the Etobicoke Board of Education. Upon retirement she lived in Collingwood and was a Snowbird at Maple Leaf Village in Port Charlotte, Florida. Donna enjoyed an active lifestyle and was a vibrant participant in tennis clubs, Probus Club, book clubs and sporting events. Her quest for adventure took her to Poland, Greece and China. Donna lived life to the fullest! A kind generous friend, full of life, a Treasure we will miss dearly. A Celebration of Life will take place Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 3 p.m. at Blue Mountain Golf & Country Club, 706 Tenth Line, Collingwood, Ontario. If desired, memorial donations can be made to the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital, cgmh.on.ca or My Friends House Collingwood Shelter myfriendshouse.ca. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
She will be remembered proudly as a highly respected educator and a joyful, thoughtful and kind individual who sparkled and enjoyed life to the fullest. Her uplifting manner and vibrant personality will be forever etched into the hearts of all those who knew and loved her.
Rest In Peace my friend, I will miss you.
