Donna Helen Ferguson (nee Bowing) passed away on Wednesday July 25 at the age of 81 surrounded by her family.
She is survived by her husband of 60 years Gary, daughters Sandra (Bill) and Laura (Rob), 4 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Donna grew up on Westham Island with her parents (Herb and Helen), two sisters (Carol and Linda) and brother (Gary).
Her childhood home included having aunts, uncles and cousins nearby and there were many years of fun family gatherings including reunions with family as far away as Sweden. Donna and Gary met during their first years of teaching in Chilliwack BC, building their house and home at Cultus Lake where they raised their family.
Donna’s love for her family, and her care for her home and beautiful gardens were known to all. She will be dearly missed.
At the family’s request no public service will be held, though a gathering of close family will be held to remember Donna.
