Ione McDonald

July 1, 1924-April 29, 2015

Ione passed away on the evening of April 29, 2015.

Ione was born July 1, 1924 in Campbell River. She was a lifelong resident of Campbell River. She will be sadly missed by her daughter Christie O’Halloran, her grandchildren Bridget Orsetti; John Lapp), Jordy (Tania) Orsetti; her great-grandchildren Jorja, Janaiah and Ava Orsetti, Seela and Chayton Lapp, as well as her brother Walt (Betty Ann) Crawford and numerous other family and friends. Ione was predeceased by her brother Cam Crawford; her sisters Bernice Ryan, Orma Brooks and Betty Rae Breeden. Ione will also be missed by her great friend and partner George Davis.

Ione enjoyed being around people; whether it was family, friends, co-workers, fellow bowlers and square dancers and golfers. She loved being active and travelling but she was always extremely fond of her ‘hometown’ Campbell River.

Ione was a sixty plus year member of the Legion ladies Auxiliary and almost made sixty years with the B.C. and Yukon Order of the Eastern Star. A hard worker, over the years, she held executive positions in both organizations. Ione maintained a positive attitude right to the end and she was a pleasure to be with.

A Celebration of Life for Ione will be held at 2 pm on Wednesday July 1, 2015 at Campbell River Baptist Church, 260 Dogwood St., Campbell River, B.C. with Minister Murray Eddie officiating.

In Lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Campbell River Food Bank or the Campbell River Hospice Fund.
