Donna Carol Rose

Donna Carol Rose

September 25, 1950 – March 2, 2020
On March 2, 2020 with her husband, and mother by her side, Donna Carol Rose passed away, leaving all who knew her brokenhearted.
Donna was born Sept. 25, 1950 in Vancouver where she spent her childhood and adolescence. Donna’s career was with the Credit Union – she worked her way up to Manager. Upon her retirement in 2005, she and Werner moved from Kamloops to Nanaimo. Once here, they promptly joined the Nanaimo Golf Club. Besides the beautiful crafting, sewing, & quilting that Donna enjoyed, she also was once a very avid hiker & golfer. Until her heart was debilitated by a virus, Donna & Werner hiked and golfed regularly. They gained many wonderful memories from the hours they spent golfing. With Donna’s health issues she no longer had the physical strength to golf much, but she enjoyed sitting on their deck, overlooking the 3rd hole at Nanaimo Golf Course, watching the golfers go by.
Donna was predeceased by her precious daughter, Lynell Rose; her sister Dawn; and her father Edward Spencer. Donna is survived and missed by her husband, Werner Windbiel; her mother Lorette Wright; her daughter Tracy Rose; her step-children, Jodene Stober (Richard), Laython Windbiel (Lori), and Candice Windbiel; her grandchildren Owen, Scotty, Taylor, Emily, Ethan, and Wyatt; her niece Lynette Jacks (Ian), and great nephew Jamieson; nephew Rene Chave (Nancy), and niece Sylvie Williams (John). Family was everything to Donna – she enjoyed every moment they spent together.
Nothing gave Donna more pleasure than getting ready for visits with her grandchildren. She and Werner were like children themselves planning the adventures they would have.
There will be a Memorial for Donna at the Nanaimo Golf Club on April 25th, 2020, between 11:00 am & 2:00 pm.
