Donna Anne (Krog) Blois

October 27, 1936September 28, 2020

Donna Blois passed away at Vernon Jubilee Hospital after a short illness.

Donna was a beloved wife of Barry for 58 years and proud mother to Darren and Stephen. She was born in Port Alberni, BC to Oliver and Elsie Krog. She was the oldest of three, being predeceased by her sister Maureen and survived by her brother, Brian. Donna attended UBC where she met Barry. She and Barry wed in 1962 in Richmond, BC, and moved to Vernon in 1965 where they started their family.

Donna was very active in her church and community. She was a driving force in the creation of Vernon Hospice. She attended Trinity United Church. Donna loved golf, curling, fishing, and later in life took up lawn bowling.

Donna and Barry enjoyed travelling together, whether in an RV or on a cruise ship. Having her boys spread throughout Canada she was fortunate to spend much time on both coasts as well as Central Canada.

Donna’s greatest pride were her wonderful daughters-in-law and the grandchildren she was blessed with. Darren’s wife Tanya, and daughters Alyssa and Ella, and Stephen’s family, Sherry, Scott, and Brent.

The family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for the care and support they provided during Donna’s last days. Particular thanks to Dr. Mike Murphy, Donna’s family doctor for many years.

Donations may be sent to Vernon Hospice in lieu of flowers. She will be greatly missed by her family and all who were lucky enough to have been part of her life.

“It is good to have an end to the journey, but it is the journey that matters in the end”.

I remember as a young girl, aunty Donna played the piano by ear. She played beautifully as I recall.

I also remember staying to visit at Easter time and their family dog ate my Easter treats out of my Easter basket.
Peppi was so sick lying prone in the carport and all were worried about the dog and I was so upset that my chocolate was all gone.
I was around 5 yrs old at the time but boy to I remember that trip.

It has been a pleasure for Myna and I to get to know Donna even better, over the last four years. Donna added her cheerfulness and a bright smile to each day, and although Covid has altered day to day routines, Donna and Barrie continued to be of service to others. We extend our condolences to Barrie, Darren, Stephen and extended families.

Donna and I met in elementary school and have been close friends for more than70 years. Donna had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to laugh. She was an ardent reader and enjoyed discussing books and world events. She excelled in solving crossword puzzles.I have a wealth of memories of great times with Donna and will miss her.
My husband Bruce graduated with Donna and shared a car pool with her to UBC where she studied to be a teacher.
Over the years we have enjoyed many visits with Donna and Barry.
