1951 – 2022

Donna Gardner passed away peacefully with family by her side on March 16, 2022. She will be dearly missed by her husband, Ed Reynen, her children; Trevor Johnson (Karen Johnson), Brian Johnson, and Sherry Johnson, her grandchildren; Theron, Drew, Story, and Hailey, her sisters; Lois Hanna (Philip Hanna) and Ruth Elliott, her sister-in-law Theresa Gardner, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Donna was predeceased by her parents; Sam and Evelyn Gardner, her sisters; Elizabeth, Debra, and Helen, her twin brother; Donald Gardner, and her infant son; Craig Johnson.

Donna was born in Swift Current, SK on April 14, 1951. She was the 4th of 7 children. She grew up in Simmie and Shaunavon, SK and lived in several places (Craik, Montmartre, Eastend, Yorkton, and Medicine Hat) before settling with her long-time partner, Ed, in Hughenden, AB.

Donna loved fishing and camping and she will always be remembered for her great humour, gardening, wonderful cooking, and for never missing the Saskatchewan draws at the Brier and Scotties.

Donna made a point to make sure everyone’s birthday was remembered and their birthday cards got to them right on time. She always made time to call her friends and family to check in.



May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face.

And rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in

the hollow of His hand.
