(nee KERN)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Donna on November 9, 2021, in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the age of 64.
Donna is survived by her daughter Kaitlynd Welwood (Ben); grandson Owen; former husband Richard Landry; father Gerhardt (Helga) Kern; siblings, Judy (Nelson) Collins, Garry Kern, and Diana Johnston; nieces and nephews, Che (Shannon), Clint, Tamara, Ryan, and Rebecca. She was predeceased by her mother Anne Kern (nee Borkofsky), and niece Vanessa Collins.
Donna was born in Winnipeg on July 24, 1957. Thoughtful, witty, and strong, she was an intensely creative person who loved her family above all else. Donna dedicated most of her life to raising her daughter, and was eagerly awaiting the birth of her second grandson in the spring. She delighted in gardening, baking, crafting, painting, and drawing; anything that allowed her to express her creativity. Donna will always be remembered for her kindness and warmth, and will forever have a place in our hearts.
A private memorial for Donna will be held during the summer.
