Donna E. MacDonald

Words cannot express the sadness felt by the loss of a most adored Mother, Sister, Aunt and Friend, Donna E. MacDonald who passed away on December 20th, 2015 surrounded by an abundance of love. A recent retiree of BC Hydro, an avid traveller and the most caring, generous woman with a warm infectious laugh.

Donna’s daughter and family would like to invite those who knew her to celebrate her life on January 10th at the South Bonson Community Center in Osprey Village, Pitt Meadows. Service will start at 2 pm followed by – in true Donna fashion – a cup of tea, light snacks and the exchange of good memories.

In lieu of flowers, donations on Donna’s behalf to the BC Cancer Society or a favoured charity would be very welcomed.

Expressions of sympathy can be made below.

    Words cannot express the loss we all feel knowing that we will not hear that wonderful laugh in this life again. Donna left a trail of wonderful memories for us all to follow. She also left behind a beautiful, generous, caring and utterly amazing daughter, a true testament to the kind of person, mother and friend that she was to too many people to count. Rest In Peace Donna, our lives were made richer by having you in them.

May God grant you strength at this time, and may your memories and the caring thoughts of others help to comfort each of you. God Bless.

  11. I remember Donna mostly for her infectious laugh and enjoyment of life itself. We did a few trips to Laughlin together and shared a room and I remember how easy she was to travel with and be with. It was not that long ago that we met at the Spaghetti Factory (her favourite) in Abbotsford and had a really nice lunch together. I will miss her very much as well.

    I wish to convey my sympathies to all of you for she was a wonderful Mother, Sister, Aunt and Friend.
