  1. My utmost condolences to all the family, I met your mother in 1955 just after her and Joe got married in1955, when on a weekend pass from Canadian Army, with her brother-in-law Tom Houda! We use to come often to the pass to have fun at the dance hall at the lake! After marrying Patrica Maslen from the pass in 1961 on my return from overseas service, use to visit Donna and Joe at their home at Adams Lake and summer holidays at Marra Lake with our children and hers, many great memories for sure! Use to stop in Chase and visit your Mother coming and going to Alberta to see our grand children, damm Covid we lost contact! Was planning a trip this summer 2023 and was going to stop to see Donna and was tracking her whereabouts and came across her obit! Again my utmost condolences on your (our) loss, yes she will be certainly be missed by all!
    My best regards to all!
