Donna Leanne Grant

DONNA LEANNE (BARYLUK) GRANT

Donna Grant, recently of Salmon Arm and formerly of White Lake/Sorrento, passed away in Salmon Arm Hospital on the evening of December 27, 2007 with family at her side. Born in Haney, B.C. on February 29, 1944, Donna was the second of five children of Joseph and Harriet Baryluk. In 1957 she married Douglas Grant of Langley. During the course of their 40 years together, Donna and Doug raised two children, Kathy and Danny, and lived in three provinces, including nine years on a 320 acre farm in Iron River, Alberta, where Donna was affectionately – and curiously – nicknamed “Dr. Grant” by the neighbours. Before her diagnosis with cancer in 2005, Donna enjoyed meeting the friendly people of Sorrento during the 12 years she spent working at the Sorrento Post Office. Donna is survived by her husband Doug; her children Kathy and Dan; her sisters and brothers Gay, Jill, Joe and Mike; her brother-in-law John; her sister-in-law Cathy; Uncle Paul, Aunts Annie and Pat, many cousins; and her numerous friends. The Family requests that instead of flowers, donations be made to the B.C. Cancer Society in Donna’s honour. A Memorial Service/Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. A notice will be posted. Donna’s friends and acquaintances are invited to come and help Doug and Donna’s family say farewell. Donna, we all miss you dearly.
