Donna Lee Catherwood

July 5, 1957 - March 13, 2024

Peacefully at the Northumberland Hills Hospital, our loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Friend, passed away on the 13th day of March 2024. Beloved mother of Lon(Sherry) and Thera. Proud grandmother of Asha, Diesel, Avery and Branden. Cherished great-grandmother of Everlee. Dearly missed by her mother, Theresa. Beloved sister of Deborah (Ben) and the late Wade. Donna’s memory will be held in the heart of her dearest friend, Nancy, her many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.

Rest in peace sweet Mother. You gave me life and everything I have to be thankful for. Words cannot describe the loss I feel losing you on this day.

You had a beautiful day with friends and family, and then passed away peacefully with Sherry, myself and Thera holding your hand. I stared into your eyes with a loving smile and a couple tears until that last breath. Your hands were held and love shared by all thereafter.

I know in my heart our paths with cross once again and you will guide me once again into an unfamiliar world. Until that time, enjoy your new journey and the company of those that now surround you.

Donna’s family wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to the wonderful nurses, staff and volunteers at Northumberland Hills Hospital ICU for the care and compassion they provided during Donna’s stay, as well as to the neighbours and close friends that supported her during her time of need. Memorial donations may be made to The Northumberland Humane Society.

Donna was such a nice lady. She sure did love her pets. She was such a kind person with a big heart.

Kathy (Fakner) Matthews - March 20, 2024

My heartfelt condolences to Donna’s Family. Donna, Cheryl, Nancy and I were friends during high school. I am shocked to hear of her passing… memories are flooding back of fun times during our teenage and young adulthood friendships. I’m sure Cheryl is welcoming you dear friend… Rest peacefully until we meet again.

Linda Cockburn - March 20, 2024

I have loved her like a sister for almost as long as I can remember. My sister (Nancy) brought Donna into our lives and we were grateful to know her, laugh and cry with her - mostly laugh. She was loved deeply and will forever be in our hearts. I know our Mom was there to greet her so she is in good hands until we all meet again. With much love I bid Bon Voyage sweet Donna. See you down the road. Love, Joe (aka Linda)

Bill and I wish to offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Donna. We lost touch with Theresa and Donna but have many good memories of get-togethers in the 70s and 80s. Both were lovely, friendly people. We hope you will find comfort and peace in the memories you share.

So sorry to hear of Donna's passing. She was a lovely woman we met when her Grandmother Doris Catherwood lived in our apartment building. Still think of Doris and her family often. She was one of the memorable ones. In a good way. Much love and blessings to the family.

Teri, I am so very sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. May your memories & the Lord guide you through this difficult time. Please accept my deepest condolences to you & all your family.

Skylar & Spencer Ferguson - March 19, 2024

Thinking of all family members of Donna at this time, and sending our condolences. Donna was our bus driver for 2 years. Every week, she would make us posters to hold at the back of the bus that said “wave” for us to hold up to the people behind us, making our mornings and afternoons so much fun and a bus ride to look forward to. It was like a game. She had prize bins, toys, and everything in between. With only 6 students on our bus, she always found a way to make it fun and for us to all feel special. I remember she came up with a game where we would guess how many green lights we would go through on the way to school, and whoever won, got a prize. An unforgettable & amazing bus driver. We will never forget her and how important she made us feel, even if we only saw her for around an hour a day Monday-Friday. Will always remember her as the best bus driver ever; may she rest in peace.

Dianne Dunk - March 19, 2024

Lon,Thera and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Donna was a fighter as she came in on her scheduled weekends although feeling unwell. She will be missed by many here at Legion Village as many stopped to chat with her. Donna knew her job and did it well. RIP lovely lady and Blessings to the family.

Roxane Brunette - March 19, 2024

I am so sorry to hear of Donna's passing. I hope you embrace each other at this difficult time. There are signs around you letting you know she is by your side. Butterflies, birds, a smell of her perfume, finding something you lost, a song, a thought. She is by your side and you can feel her presence.

Maggie McKessick - March 19, 2024

So sorry to hear this news. Did so enjoy our chats when she was at the village every other weekend. RIP Donna 😘
