ANGELA MARGARET LOUISE DONDO (BARFOOT)
Born: Dec 18, 1974Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
ANGELA MARGARET LOUISE DONDO
Born in Owen Sound, Ontario, December 18, 1974. Angela had a passion for witnessing the Gospel to others. She left home at 17 to travel across Canada with a Christian mission group. It was during these travels that she first fell in love with Manitoba, returning on multiple occasions. After a chance meeting at the Winnipeg Airport Chapel, Jerome and Angela would begin a correspondence, an engagement, a marriage, and then, together, embark on the holy and intrepid task of having a family of ten children.
Angela was outgoing, passionate, principled, loving, intuitive, and determined. Her life, although shortened, was a testament to the gifts and grace that God can bestow, to the love and tenderness a mother can provide, and to the purpose and meaning to be found in the service of others.
Angela is survived by her loving husband, Jerome Dondo and beautiful children, Joshua, Josiah, Jesse, Emily, Joseph, Jonathan, Joachim, Jathan, Lena and Jamin. She is remembered by her siblings, Scott (Debbie), Glenn (Leisha), Rebecca (Scott) and Patrick; her in-laws, Annette (Wayne), Rose-Marie (James), Gerald (Edith), Yvonne, Aline (Peter) and Reginald (Erin). She will be missed by her parents, David and Sonja Barfoot; her grandmother Eleanor Barfoot; her father-in-law and mother-in-law Roland and Alice Dondo; as well as her many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by her grandparents, Glen and Verna Barfoot, Donald and Margaret Lane and sister-in-law Lillian Dondo.
A ceremony to celebrate Angela's life was held on Saturday, December 21, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at the MNP Exhibition Building on the Island, Royal Road South in Portage la Prairie with Pastor Glenn Loewen officiating.
Interment followed in St. Claude Cemetery, with a reception following in the St. Claude Community Hall.
The family would like to thank the all the medical staff in the cancer centre at the St. Boniface Hospital and all the medical team at the Notre Dame Medical Centre for the excellent care they provided during Angela's battle.

So sorry to hear of your loss, Jerome. I lost my beloved Percy in May so have at least some idea of the days ahead. I also know the joy, peace and comfort of having such a great love in my life and thank God every day for His faithfulness. To God be the glory! - Posted by: Caroline Stevenson (Holland) (friend) on: Dec 21, 2019
Oh Jerome It breaks my heart to read this. So sorry. I'm happy to have met u and her at Lucette's funeral. My mother died at 33 leaving 11 Children behind. I was the youngest at 3 months. It's amazing how God is always there near us if we ask him too. Your children are lucky to have a nice father like you. God will give you all the courage you need and Jesus will hold your hand and you'll be ok. I will pray for protection for your little family. - Posted by: Henriette Rey (Cousin) on: Dec 21, 2019
