Donna was a passionate advocate in her work at the Breast Screening Program where she worked as a radiology technologist. She spent many happy times at the family camp at Lost Channel. She had a great affinity for the beauty of nature and a good glass of red wine. She was an accomplished crafter whose creations are treasured by family and friends. She enjoyed travelling, especially anywhere there was water and a beach. Donna will be remembered as a very giving and generous person whose smile and presence lit up the room. Donna was the glue of the family, making sure everyone was loved and looked after. The light of her life will be cherished by all who knew and loved her. The family would like to thank Dr. Lacey Pitre who provided Donna with the best and most compassionate care as well as all the staff at the Northern Cancer Centre, nurse Jennifer Lavrizzi , nurse practitioner Danielle Drouin and PSW Josephine Adama.
