One Condolence for “FODER, Donnis”

  1. Annalee Hearn says:

    My sincerest (and seriously belated) condolences on the passing of a great mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and one of my best friends. I was in Lethbridge in September after being away for 2 years and was hoping to see Donnis. Friends in Lethbridge directed me to the Obituary as they had heard of her passing. The tribute above is well done and brings a lot of good memories of times Bryan, our children and I spent with Johnnie and Donnis.
