Her family was always her priority and she glowed with pride each time she spoke of each of you. She was so proud to be your Daughter, Wife and Mother. I was proud to have her as my cousin, my “younger sister”, and my friend. I cant begin to imagine your pain but take solace in knowing she’s peaceful and watching over all of you with pride and love. You’re in my heart and prayers now and always.

Jim and family,
I worked with Donna in ICU many years ago,she was a true friend to everyone she met and a pleasure to with; many a laughs were shared .It will be those endless memories that will keep her close in our hearts. Be strong,

JIm, Brendan, Katie, Max, Hazel and families.. Words cannot convey how saddened and heartbroken I am to hear about the passing of Donna. A true kind loving woman who I was so very happy and proud to call my friend. When I lived in St. Johns I spent alot of time with Donna at work and outside of work. With life and crazy shedules we did not talk every day but when we did catch up it felt like we saw each other yesterday. A person did not have to spend a lot of time in her company to realize how important her friends and family were to her. I know this loss is immeasurable to all who was fortunate to have met and become a part of her life. The wonderful memories , the fun and laughter and I know I will never forget her. Keeping you all close in my herat and prayers at this beyond sad time.

Max, Hazel and family,
Sorry to hear of Donnas passing, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. May God give you comfort and may happy memories sustain you in the coming days.

Jim and family
We were so saddened to hear of Donna’s passing.
I was her classmate in Nursing school, she was such a sweet person.
Always a smile… always a laugh, that infectious laugh would always brighten the room
I communicated with her occasionally during her battle and ran into her during a trip home.
She never changed, she didn’t let it change her.. her strength showed through.
I met your wonderful kids and you could see the love that was shared and Donna still managed to laugh and joke at all that was happening.
She will be missed by so many but never forgotten. Her light will shine forever.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family

I went to school with Donna (starting in Jr high) and I remember her being such a wonderful person with a warm, welcoming smile and hearty laugh! I have spent time thinking about those days today and the times we would drive together to one of our evening classes during university (and the laughing we would do), and about times in nursing when our paths crossed again, always with her warm, welcoming smile-no matter how long it had been since we had seen each other. I’m filled with sadness for your loss and send you heartfelt condolences.

sunshine, wild and free
playing tag with the wind
while I am waiting for thee.”

Spread your wings and fly my friend! Like a butterfly, you were one of a kind.

She will be dearly missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know her. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so heartbroken for all of you. Donna was a beautiful person with a big heart, so full of life, always smiling and laughing and making others feel better. She always kept in touch with me through the years, whenever there was something to celebrate (babies!), or just to check in and say hi. That meant the world to me. I am so inspired by her strength and grace over the past few years. I will always remember her. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope your beautiful memories of Donna will help you through the hardest days. XO

I am so saddened to hear of Donna’s passing. Donna and I graduated nursing school together and she was one of my favorite people, an absolute sweetheart! She was working the night my son was born and was just excellent! She had contacted me back in late February about a fellow classmate whose spouse was having medical issues and wanted to to express her concern, which shows what kind of person she was. We then messaged back and forth and she told me all about her kids, sent me pics of them, told me what what they were doing, how her husband was with his band, and about how Marlise was her rock during her medical issues. She definitely loved you all. She was a lovely person, my condolences to her husband, children and family.

Jim and family ,
We are so heartbroken to hear about Donna .She certainly was a wonderful person ! We are away and unable to pay respects to you and your family personally but know that we are thinking of you . may you all find some comfort in her wonderful memories !!

I had the pleasure of working with Donna in the ICU at the HSC.She was very kind and caring to me when I was struggling personally.I will never forget her kindness.Thinking of you all and please know she has held a special place in my heart for many years.

I am deeply saddenned to hear of Donnas passing. I am echoing the words of many. I first met Donna as a coworker in ICU about 20 years ago. Each and every interaction was so positive and uplifting. She had this aura of sunshine around her which radiated through her smile. She was the ultimate nurse , as well as a genuine human being. If I live to be a hundred, I won’t leave half the impression you have left on this world. God bless you and your family!

To all of Donna’s family, friends and colleagues. we have all lost a beautiful woman with Donna’s passing. she will be missed by all that knew her. Her infectitious smile lit up any room she entered and i know her patient’s found comfort in the care that she provided. words cannot describe the loss I feel todsy. she will be missed by all thst knew and loved her. This world is a better place for having Donna in it. May you all find strength in knowing what a special woman she was. May God bless all of you in your time of grief and sorrow.

My condolences to Jim, Brendan, Katie and family/friends on the loss of Donna. I will always remember that smile and her love of life. My heart goes out to you all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours at this time 🤗🤗🙏🙏🙏🙏

Max, Hazel and family. We’re at a loss for words and so saddened by the news of the passing of your daughter Donna. I recall a few years back when we stopped at Tim Horton’s in Clarenville and you were there and told us then about your daughter’s condition. (I think you said you had been out at Jack’s Pond). I never forgot that and thought how devastating it must be, thinking how I would feel if it were my daughter and have thought about all of you ever since. May God be with you in the days ahead and pray that the special memories you have will be of comfort to you. God Bless, Mabel & Ralph

Max, Hazel, Jim, Brendan and Katie, we are so very sorry for your loss, Donna was a beautiful person and while we cannot imagine the pain and loss you are all experiencing., we truly believe she is with loved ones who passed before her and is watching overyou always, Out thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Love, Gary and Fiona

It is difficult to find words to express sympathy for such a loss. Donna was so special to so many. She represents the strength and dignity that we all hope we would have in life and in passing. Her beautiful smile brightened many lives. The world is less without her presence but more because of what she left us all. Her memory.

The last time I saw Donna the first thing I was met with was her very warm, beautiful smile. Donna was a truly wonderful person through and through. My heart and prayers are with her husband and children during this difficult time. Max and Hazel my most sincere condolences to you both.

I had the pleasure of working with Donna in ICU many years ago and then for a short time in the caseroom. It was a pleasure to work with her and also to call her a friend. She had a smile to brighten a room, even over the last few years when she had such a hard battle to fight but showed nothing but positivity and strength. My condolences to all her family, especially her husband and children, all her friends, her work family and her “sisters in pink” family. Cherish the memories . She will be forever missed

The world has lost a beautiful soul. My heart is breaking for you Jim, Brenden, and Katie. She will be missed by all of us.

Prayers with family and friends….may sge reat in peace.

My heartfelt sincere condolences to your family… Donna was a unique woman I met her in my yoga class…. that radiant smile and heart of gold dignity and grace were just two of her many virtues. Her Love will live on in all the lives she blessed. Namaste. Tina Baird

Such a sweet wonderful human being. To have a sense of all the people Donna has touched over her far too brief, but impactful life is to know something of her nature and what was important to her. I’ve been blessed to have known Donna since we were toddlers…the example of a life generously lived is something I’ve counted myself lucky to have experienced as her friend. There aren’t words right now-but there are wishes for strength, peace and as much comfort as possible for Jim, Brendan and Katie, Max Hazel (the ‘B”s), Trevor and that incredibly wide circle of her family and friends that Donna has so profoundly touched. With gratitude Donna for all that you gave and all that you shared and all that you are.

Our world is smaller and a little less bright today without the radiance of Donn’a beautiful smile and wonderful personality. Jim, Brendan and Katie, Mr and Mrs Baldwin, and Trevor, my heart aches for all of you. To Donna’s extended families, her SOS “Pink” Sisters, and to our nursing family, my sincerest condolences. I know we will keep Donna’s spirit alive within us.
Rest in peace, Donna. Safe travels, little one.

There are no words that could accurately describe the feeling when we were told on Donna’s passing A nicer person you will never meet. A smile so wide and bright, eyes that shined and a her laugh brightened any day

Condolences to the loves of her life; Jim, Brendan and Katie, her family, her pink sister and to all her coworkers who had the privilege to work alongside her.

Just remember the ache you feel when you think of her, is her hugging you in your time of sadness

So very sorry to hear of your Daughters passing, Our Deepest Sympathy on your loss!!

Hazel, Jim and families. God Bless you all at this very difficult time. Donna was such a kind and considerate person. Always putting everyone ahead of herself. She was and always will be an amazing woman. That beautiful smile of hers just warms the heart. Rest In Peace my friend.

So sorry to hear the news of the passing of this wonderful lady. Donna was such a joy to be around, with a smile always on her face and a loving heart. We’ve missed her wonderful work in case room, but more importantly missed a wonderful person. Sincerest condolences to Jim, the kids and her family and friends.

We are so very sad to hear of Donna’s passing. Our deepest condolences to you all.

I write this with a very heavy heart. To Jim, the kids, all the family and friends, on behalf of Nancy and our family, our sincerest condolences. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
