Donna was Born on October 30, 1946 in Ocean Falls BC. She enjoyed her life in Campbell River as an amazing artist and musician. She played piano and acoustic guitar and will be remembered for many campfire, coffee shop, bar, wedding and Karaoke performances. She was also a very talented actress taking part in many musicals over the years. She had a passion for beautiful things, plants and great food. She worked as an X-ray technician at VGH before her love of the outdoors and people led her to a career as a Postie for Canada Post in Campbell River. She shared everything she had with the ones she loved and her generosity and kindness will be greatly missed by everyone she knew.
The Family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for the care and attention from the VGH ICU staff, and Dr. Andrew Buczkowki.
