Donna is survived by her brother Desmond (Rosemary) Haché and her sisters Doris (Ted) Jamieson, Marion Rea and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Louis Sauvé. Donna had a distinguished career in the civil service. She never lost her sense of humour, gentle nature and generosity of spirit. She is remembered for her love of cats, her passion for reading and the good cheer that never diminished.
