She also enjoyed dispatching for the Cape Breton County Trucker’s Association. Donna was a member of St. Joseph’s parish; teaching religious education when her children were young. As an early teen, Donna loved being a member of Cadets. In the past several years, she loved shopping excursions to the US and traveling south. One of her favourite events was the annual family long weekend where her amazing sense of humour shined through.
Donna’s true love in life was her husband, Gary, who was always by her side. Donna’s most proud accomplishments were her two amazing children, Tara and Jarrett. She lived and loved for her two children. Donna was also very excited about the upcoming birth of her second grandchild, Rory Reginald who will be brother to Khloe.
