Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • So sorry to hear of Donna's passing. I remember her fondly from Charleswood United Church. If my memory is correct, she was the "Pocket Lady" at the church teas. With many pockets on her full skirted, floor length dress, she allowed children to pick a prize from a pocket. I remember how delighted the children would be when they would pull out a treasure. I remember her as a caring, friendly, glamorous woman. So sorry for your loss, Laurie. Take comfort in knowing that she is out of pain and is in the loving arms of our Lord. My condolences to you, your family, your dad and your brother. - Posted by: Louise Dahle (friend of Laurie) on: Jun 04, 2020

  • I am so sorry to hear of Donna's passing. My deepest condolences to George, Murray and Laurie. Donna and George were awesome neighbors and wonderful friends and I have many great memories including building a backyard "good neighbor" fence with Donna. George not being anything near the handyman that Donna was, arranged for a military business trip at the last minute to get out of it. At least that's what I accused him of. Donna was always thrilled to receive any type of power tool as a gift. To see her without a smile on her face was a rare occasion. We had many good evenings sitting, having a few libations and eating dinners. I have rarely met such a wonderful and loving family and Donna was the keystone in that. She will be missed. RIP Donna.
