FRASER, Donna Marie

Posted: January 8th, 2022


Donna Marie Fraser passed away peacefully with her family by her side in Lethbridge, AB on January 6, 2022 at the age of 73 years.

She is survived by her husband Robert Fraser of Raymond, Daughter’s Becky (Derrick) Passey of Prince George, and Robin (James) Nikkel of Raymond, and her son Todd (Stacy) Fraser of Raymond.

She will be greatly missed by her 14 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

Donna was predeceased by her parents Don and Ruth Johnson and her sister Carol. She leaves to mourn her brother, Brian Johnson and sisters, Shirley Perry and Carma Wong.

She was born in Lethbridge in the Galt Hospital on March 4, 1948. She received her teaching certificate at the University of Lethbridge. Donna enjoyed substitute teaching at various schools in the area and being around the youth. Seeing her students brightened her day.

She met and married Robert Fraser on July 17, 1969.

Donna fought rheumatoid arthritis for a very long time but she never allowed this to keep her down. She could run a forage harvester, combined for long hours and cultivated many a row of sugar beets. Her extensive tailgate lunches fed many men out in the fields on those long days.

Her flower beds were always stunning and many hours were spent on their care. She loved decorating her home for every season and was always writing notes of love and encouragement to everyone around her. Her birthday cards and holiday goodie bags will be missed by all who received them.

Mom was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in leadership positions in all auxiliaries. She was a wonderful teacher and had a deep and abiding testimony of her Savior, Jesus Christ. She loved the temple and the peace she felt there.

Donna’s legacy will be her endless optimism amid trails and her enduring faith. Her example will be felt for generations to come.

Thank you to all who served and cared for her. She spoke highly of you.

A Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday, January 11, at 11:00am, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints COBBLESTONE CHAPEL (27 Cobblestone Lane, Raymond). Friends may meet the family from 10:00-10:45am at the Church prior to the Service. The Service will be live streamed on the Salmon and Sons website.

Covid exemption program will be in effect, proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test (within 72 hours) is required.
