Donna was an inspiration to so many people over her lifetime. She and her husband experienced many joys, sorrows, hardships, consolations, and victories over any obstacle put into their path. Donna would claim this was as a result of determination, perseverance, humour and an unwavering Faith that the Creator would get them through it together. Donna was a humble woman, but had an inner strength that many came to trust and rely on. She never sought fame or riches, but she was rich beyond words in the graces that God gave her to be a source of wisdom, comfort, courage, joy and love to so many.  Donna was a Spiritual Warrior, she prayed unceasingly for her family, friends and community 24/7, 365 days...she went to bed praying and woke up praying for everyone, everywhere. Her Spiritual legacy was her wish that all people would turn back to God and return to Church and live a life based on Kindness, Charity, Peace, Faith in the Creator and Love.  
Donna, we thank you for all you taught us by your life. Your example will not be forgotten, and we ask that you continue to watch over us, pray for us, and, until we meet again, know that you are loved.
