It is with great sadness we announce the untimely passing of Donna Lynn McKay on March 15, 2021 at the age of 51, surrounded by the people she loved most.
She was predeceased by her daughter Alyssa; mother Linda; grandmother Dorothy; as well as uncle Bob.
Donna will be lovingly remembered by her son Wesley McKay (Gemini); daughter Jayda McKay-Gale; grandson Carter; partner Richard Gale; and cousin Cindy Sigurdson (Rob) who Donna referred to as her sister.
She will be missed deeply by her aunts and uncles, Ellen and Bill, Mary-Ann and Roger, Violet and Ross; cousins, Denise (Jayson), Cory, Aline, Darlene (Glenn); and her great-cousins Ciara (Kolt), Chantel, Ryan; as well as family members, Kelly, Jodie, Megan and Tyler Gale.
Donna will leave a lasting hole in the hearts of all her friends and family who all loved her. Donna was an exceptional mother whose life revolved around her children whom she was so very proud of. She was someone you could always count on no matter what, and was the strongest woman you had ever met. Donna has impacted so many people in her life's journey and will never be forgotten. We are very blessed to have had her as our Mother.

Love You forever and always xoxo

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • I cannot believe that it has been a year since you left us, not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I cry many nights missing you, miss talking with you, coming over visiting you wishing you were still with us. You will always be in my memories Love forever 💓 Your friend/sister Debbie - Posted by: Debbie Johnson (Friend) on: Mar 16, 2022

  • Donna was not only my neighbour, she was my friend. She was kind, had a heart of gold and would help you out in any way possible if she could. Her love for her children and grandson so was very evident in that she’d do anything for them. We talked about many things—shared lots of laughs and lots of tears. Working in our yards often ended in one of our yards, with impromptu dinners or bbq’s. The many potluck dinners we shared became a tradition for special occasions with her and Richard opening their home and hosting. I will miss her dearly. She was taken far too young. My heart goes out to Wes, Jayda, Richard and her whole family who loved her so much. May the memories you created together help you all through this difficult time.
