Donna Marie Carmel

 

October 10th, 1949 – July 27th ,  2022

Donna Marie Carmel passed peacefully into paradise with family by her side. Left to cherish her memory are John Carmel, husband, and best friend of 37 years. Her children Mike Butans (Nancy Ellis) and Julie Young (Jasson Young). Her brother John Staples (Pam Staples), and her sisters Sally Leach (Ken Leach), Linda Poirier, and Peggy Staples. She will also be sadly missed by all her nieces and nephews.

Donna loved life and had a great sense of humor. She loved her friends, reading, a hot cup of tea, and most of all her family. Her grand children and great grand children were her treasures and watching them grow was her blessing. Donna will also be remembered for her selflessness, gentleness, and her unconditional love. Donna was a bright light to everyone around her and brough joy and life everywhere she went. She will be forever our ray of sunshine.

Her family would like to make a special thank you to her sister Linda for all the love and care in her final weeks.

Arrangements entrusted to George Darte Funeral Home, 585 Carlton St., St. Catharines.
