Donna Alice Meagher (nee Burke)
It is with great sadness that we announce the great loss of our mother, sister, aunt, and friend on the 20th of January, 2018 after her short but courageous battle with cancer. Donna was predeceased by her mother Muriel Laird, father Donald Burke and sister Joanne Fry. She is survived and will be deeply missed by her children Scott (Sue) and Brandi (Ryan), grandchildren (her specials) Parker, Tanner and Preslee, brothers Terry (Gracie) and Keith (Lisa), sisters Arlene (Keith), Gloria and Lynn, numerous nieces and nephews, and countless extended family members and loving friends. Born in Saskatoon, SK on the 22nd of October, 1949, Donna moved to Vancouver, B.C. in the late 1960’s to start her family with Gordy (Sonny) Meagher and remained in the Lower Mainland until her move home to Saskatoon in 2015. Donna will always be remembered for her outward pouring of love and compassion, her infectious smile and laugh and her love of the Christmas season. She was always the life of the party or family gathering. Donna loved spending time with her family and friends; the door to her home was always open to everyone that had the tremendous privilege of knowing her. A Celebration of Donna’s Life will occur in Saskatoon, SK and in B.C. later this summer. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Donna’s name to a local transition shelter/society for women. The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the staff at Saskatoon’s Royal University Hospital for all their care, love, and compassion for Donna during her stay in hospital.
