Donna Joy Cockwell

Donna passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 81, with the love of her family surrounding her.
Donna spent many years in Cranbrook where she met and married her husband Don, and where they raised their 2 children. She was a valued member of the medical offices where she worked for many years; she also spent time volunteering in the community.

Donna had a deep love for family and cherished her many friends. She was known as a true lady who was always willing to help others and who cared deeply for her community.
Donna was predeceased by her husband, Don, in 2015.
She is survived by her son, David (Sandi), daughter, Deanna (Eric), 4 grandchildren, Jason (Chelsey), Chantel (Willy), Bryan (Sara), and Aaron (Sharla), 4 great-grandchildren, Aviana, Jailyn, Taya, and Emily, her 2 sisters, Diane (Darrel) and Darlene (Joseph).
