SKUCE, Donna Bernice (nee Davison)

April 16, 1939 – November 29, 2014

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Nan, sister, aunt and loving friend to many, after a sudden illness. Donna passed away peacefully with her family by her side. She is survived by her son Vance (Jackie); daughters, Paula, Leslie (Pat), Mercedes (Kathy), Lisa (Gary); granddaughter Shayla; brother Jim (Alma), and niece Eleanor.

She is predeceased by her loving husband Les Skuce, son Danny and sister Dorothy. Donna was a dedicated loving mother, confidant, generous, caring friend to many. Her greatest joy was her garden, cooking and baking for friends and family, and cutting hair. She spent her lifetime as a hairstylist and was still working 2 days a week up until her sudden illness. No service by request.

In lieu flowers, donations to Christine Morrison Hospice, Mission, BC would be greatly appreciated.

The family would like to thank Ridge Meadows Hospital emergency staff, 3N, and Christine Morrison Hospice for all their loving care of our mom, and a special thank you to mom’s angel Christine McDonald for being there when mom needed her.
