KUEHN, Donna-Mae Nan (MacRitchie)

Donna Mae Nan MacRitchie was born May 15, 1940 in Vancouver, BC. After a brave 4 year battle with cancer she peacefully passed away, with her precious family surrounding her on Sept. 4, 2012. She attended UBC and graduated with a degree in Home Economics. Started her teaching career in Sparwood BC. In 1965 she met her future husband Sig Kuehn in Trail BC.

In 1968 they moved to Prince George where she taught until she had her first born Katherine in 1971, followed by the birth of her next daughter Tami in 1973 and the birth of her only son Karl in 1975. For the next 16 years she put her heart and soul into being a full-time stay at home mom to her treasured 3 children. Because of her love for teaching she returned to the school system in 1987 until her retirement in 2000. In 2004 she received a precious gift of a grandson named Austin whom she poured her love and devotion into raising. Her sphere of influence reached beyond her family to many friends, her beloved church, and community. She was known for her amazing beauty both inside and out, strong leadership, unfathomable courage and wisdom, immense wit and positive attitude and her desire to continually learn and gain knowledge primarily about her faith in Jesus. Some of her other achievements are president of the Christian Womens Club, counseling girls, starting a program for morning out for moms, co-ordinating the publishing of a cookbook for her church, and served as a deacon at her church. After retiring she traveled extensively with many of her family members and was blessed to see the wedding of her son Karl to Tracey Corbett. Donna’s Memorial Service will be held at White Rock Baptist Church, 1653-140th Street, Surrey, BC on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers please donate to BC Cancer Society. She will be sorely missed by her family, friends and church. Until we meet again. John 14:1-3
