It is with much sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Donna at home on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1. Donna was born in Belleville, Ontario to the family of Stuart and Elsie Hartley.
Donna accompanied her husband Wayne around the various bases in the Royal Canadian Air Force for 31 years before they retired in Courtenay in 1991. Donna was an active member of the Comox Cancer Society as office manager for many years.
Donna will be remembered by her many friends and relatives as a very cheerful person who went out of her way to make people happy.
Donna is survived by Wayne, her husband of 57 years, her son Edward, his wife Ruta, and their children Krista and Matthew of St. Catharines, Ontario, and her sister in law Heather and her husband Don Doyle of Ottawa, Ontario. Donna was preceded by her sons Dale and Rickey.
Donna will be buried beside her sons in the spring of 2020. Flowers gratefully declined.
For those who wish, a donation to The Cancer Society or Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
