In Loving Memory of Donna Jean Donovan
January 18, 1950 – December 20, 2013
Donna Jean Donovan (Babuik) passed away in Surrey, B.C. at the age of 63. Surrounded by the love of family and friends, Donna passed away peacefully.
Donna was born January 18, 1950 to Alex and Nora Babuik of Spirit River, AB. Donna married Michael Donovan, September 6, 1969 in Spirit River. Donna and Mick had many moves around Alberta while Mick was stationed in the R.C.M.P. Later they relocated to Vernon, BC and another move brought them to Comox, BC. Donna worked for the provincial government in Courtenay, BC until her retirement in 2010. She had great care and compassion for others. Donna was a loving mom and wife, full of infinite patience and wisdom. She was an excellent baker, gardener, and seamstress, gave a great haircut and had the most wonderful smile. Donna loved family gatherings, playing cards and Saturday visits with her friends at the Cumberland Legion. She loved to travel and experience new places and customs. Donna was very fortunate to have visited so many places with family and friends. We will all miss these excursions as another trip was always in the works when returning from one.
Donna will be missed so very much by her husband Mick, daughters Christine (Darren), Kellie (Kurtis) and grandchildren Connor, Peyton and Liam; three sisters Elaine (Percy) Stefura, Lois (Steve) Bodnar, Gail (Wayne) Heyland, plus many nieces, nephews and brother and sister-in-laws. Donna was predeceased by her parents, Alex and Nora Babuik, and brother, Rick Babuik.
Special thanks to all the doctors and staff in the U.S.A. and Surrey, B.C. for the excellent care she received. Celebration of Life Service will be held in the North Vancouver Royal Canadian Legion, 123 W. 15th St. North Vancouver, BC on March 15th, 2014 at 2:00pm.
