Donna Greenwood Obituary

Donna Greenwood

Donna Jean Greenwood (nee Wren) passed away Friday, February 2nd, surrounded by family at The West Parry Sound Health Centre, in her 78th year. Beloved wife of Clifford for 62 years, and loving mother of Ted (Karen) and Susan (Randy). Proud grandmother of Kyle, Clinton, Alison, and Bradley (Brittany). Survived by sister Joan Hewson (Martin) and Lawrence Wren (Eileen). Predeceased by her parents Christopher and Ena Wren (Farley), sisters Freida Hardy, Mary van Ry, Naida Reynolds & Audrey Hollard, brothers Rod, Norris, Doug and Lloyd Wren. Donna was born at home on July 17, 1940, during a time when her father ran the General Store in Dunchurch. At age 4, the youngest of 11, her family moved to Bradford, where Donna eventually met and married Cliff, and together, built several homes in Holland Landing, before deciding to move and build a home in Dunchurch on Whitestone Lake. Donna enjoyed all the outdoors offered and loved to camp, fish, snowmobile and Atv with her children, grandchildren and many friends. She played Woman’s Softball in Parry Sound with her daughter Sue, and loved Curling with her friend and neighbour Agnes Brumpton. Besides acting as bookkeeper for Cliff’s construction business, Donna worked as an Education Assistant at the Whitestone Lake Central School; later as a Home Support Worker; and finally helping Cliff run the Ontario Teachers Federation Campgrounds on Quinn Lake. She enjoyed when her sisters Mary, Joan and Naida became neighbours and was most happy when surrounded by children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and of course good friends. She loved a good laugh, playing games at her kitchen table and sharing stories. Donna had a great heart and a strong resolve, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. A Celebration of Life for family & friends, will be announced at a later date. Spring internment at Fairholme Cemetery. If desired, donations can be made to The West Parry Sound Hospital or the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
