Donna was born on April 9, 1946 and passed away peacefully in Cowichan Regional Hospital on July 24th, 2008.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband of forty-two years, Gordon Darbyshire on October 23, 2006 – this was a heartbreak of unimaginable proportions for “Grandma”, but she walked on without him. She leaves behind three well-raised sons, (Darren, Dean, and Glan), and six treasured grandchildren (Colleen, Cassandra, Darcy, Ryanna, Mason, and Carter). She will be missed greatly by those left behind; we will always relish her feisty spirit, honesty, and wonderfully unique character. There will be no service, as per her wishes.

Gord left early, so Donny soon followed….
