SZABO, DonnaPosted: March 30th, 2017
MS. DONNA JEAN SZABO, of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at the St. Therese Villa on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at the age of 78 years.
Donna is lovingly remembered by her three daughters, Erin (Gerb) Hart, Debbie Werk (George Androkovich) and Kelly Szabo (Paul Kipnik); six grandchildren, Jen and Andrew, Michele and Jeff (Cheena) and Amber and Daniel (Britany); and seven great- grandchildren, Zane, Matilda, Nevaeh, Jerzee, Lyric, Leah and Damon. Other people that were dear to Donna’s heart were Bob Hughes (common-law husband of Janice Firth) and Ryan Process (father of four of her great- grandchildren).
Donna was predeceased by her mother and father, stepfather, sister Nola Colwell and her daughter Janice Firth as well as other aunts, uncles and cousins.
Donna was born on October 10, 1938 in Brantford, Ontario, one of two daughters of the late Cpl. George A. Fisher, Ethel E. Catherwood and stepfather Jack Fern.
Mom lived at St. Therese Villa for the past five years and made many friends with the staff and residents of the west wing. She felt like they were all family. She enjoyed bingo, crib, making school lunches and many other activities.
At Donna’s request, no formal funeral service will be held. A Graveside Service will be held at a later date.
I would like to say a very special thank you to the Kipnik family for making my mom feel so loved and a part of their family. I would also like to thank Michele Werk (Donna’s Granddaughter) for all of the help and support that she has given to me since Mom’s passing.
