March 3, 1936 – July 30, 2019
With overwhelming grief and sadness, our family announces the sudden passing of our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Donna Catherine Walker
Donna was born in Dawson Creek on March 3, 1936, where she and her husband Bob, raised their four children. They later moved to White Rock to allow for Donna to further her career. Donna worked as a teacher and went on to obtain her Master’s in Education. After teaching grade school for 35 years, she moved on to SFU to work in the Faculty of Education, later starting her own business, using her experience to help the education system evolve into the Y2K program.
Donna was passionately immersed in integrating aboriginal history, tradition and language into the BC school curriculum. She felt so very connected to the people, art and culture and made it her personal mission to ensure the first nations dialects and true stories remain as intact as possible in the education system.
It was also very important to Donna to nurture her many relationships with her large circle of friends. If you were lucky to be a friend of Donna’s, she made sure you knew just how valuable you truly were to her and to the world around you.
She is predeceased by her beloved husband, Robert Walker and her dear son, Robbie Walker. She is survived by her sons, Mark Walker and Jack Walker and her daughter Leslie Walker. She is also survived by her cherished grandchildren, Dustin Walker, Rebecca Casey, Kaitlyn Walker, Melissa Wood, Kristina Walker, Alexander Hyder, and David Wilson. She also leaves behind the loves of her life, great granddaughters Saoirse, ÃƒÂine, and Emma and great grandson Jaxon.
The Walker family would be honored if you would join the family in celebrating this beautiful soul and her very special life at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey, BC on Saturday, September 14 at 1 pm. We further ask that in lieu of flowers, we’d be grateful for you to make a donation to the BC Family Hearing Resource Society. This foundation was dear to her heart.
