SAWCHUK, Donna Anne

(nee Breadman)

Devoted Wife, Partner and Friend to Lee always Mom to Rob, Grandma Donna to Lauren and Tyler.

Donna was born August 30, 1952 in Nova Scotia. In 1966 the family moved to Crescent Beach. She attended Semiahmoo High School where she and Lee would begin a life long relationship that after some small side trips would bring them to marry on Salt Spring November 1980 where they would move to in 1991. On Salt Spring Donna was involved with Brownies and Guides. She worked for Pharmasave for many years. Finally the journey would take them to Peachland where Donna would come to volunteer at the Wellness Centre. April 2007 Donna had her cancer confirmed. She decided to deal with it head on and so began the battle. Donna left us on Jan. 2, 2009 at the Hospice House in Kelowna.

Donna is survived by her man Lee, son Rob (his wife Joanne), grandchildren Lauren & Tyler. In-laws Leo and Lynne, brother-in-law Michael wife Dawn, Colby, Zack, Wyatt and Cheyenne, brother-in-law Rande, Lisa, Emma & Noah.
