Donna also leaves three nieces, Tamara Lemky, Christine Steffich (Matt) and Kathryn Rush (Kyle Heeb), and four great nieces and nephews, Trevor, Sarah, Lilli and Dakota.

Donna was predeceased by her husband Maurice (Moe) Jenkins in 1983.

Donna and Moe were married in 1960 and moved to Salt Spring with their two children in 1973.

Donna enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed her Saturday and Sunday breakfast group, yoga, book club and walking at Fernwood.
