The time spent with Donna is a treasured memory. She became more like a sister to me then a cousin . Many times we had coffee together while reminiscing about fun times. Lynda and I will miss her forever and cherish the memories she left behind. Condolences to her family.

Aunt Donna was married to my dad's (Wilf, deceased Feb. 2010) brother Basil. I remember Aunt Donna most when I think of my mom, Mary Downer, deceased March 2010. They spent many hours talking, over coffee at our house in the mid 90's. She always had a smile on her face & was so kind. They had alot in common those days. Maybe now they'll have coffee again. Heavenly coffee😁
RIP

I remember Aunt Donna mostly when I was a little girl at grandma Js and on picnics. She was always happy and smiling. She would get out there at the picnics and play baseball and race with all the kids. She will be missed but will always be in my memories.
Love, Aleena, Steve and family.

Dearest Aunt Donna,

You were the light in your families life and I am sure they are going to miss you very much. I remember all the fun times at grandmas house and how we all got together. That is one of my cherished memories of you. RIP sweet lady.

Love Lisa

Donna was a friend to my children and myself when we moved across the street from her several years ago. She helped me through some of the
difficulties my family was facing. I quickly learned that Donna was a sincere and caring person. Donna was my speed-walking companion and we spent many hours discussing issues that were important to us. I will never forget my friend. She was truly a treasure.
