Donna grew up in Ingersoll, graduated nursing from Victoria Hospital, London, in 1949. Her nursing career took her from specializing to working at Imperial Oil in Sarnia and Sick Kids in Toronto. After a staying home raising their children, she moved into psychiatric nursing and then Home Care Nursing. Meeting with her “lunch bunch” nursing classmates was always a great joy over the years. Donna enjoyed baking, swimming, family camping trips, and travelling with Nick. She was very good at dispensing advice and if we forgot what we were supposed to do, she was quick to remind us. Despite numerous health setbacks, it did not stop her from genuinely caring and helping our families, neighbours, church friends and even strangers on the train. Mom found great strength in her faith and her favourite poem Desiderata, “Go placidly amid the noise and haste…”
