Welcome to KORU Cremation | Burial | Ceremony

Deborah Lynne Donn

It is with deep sadness that our family announces the passing of Deb, our beloved sister, aunt and friend. Deb (age 69) passed away peacefully in her home on July 9th, 2022.

Deb was born and raised on a farm in Port Kells, BC. She graduated from UBC with honours and her many interests led her to many different careers. She retired early as an accountant at UBC and continued taking courses throughout her life as she loved to learn. Deb had a special affinity for languages.

Deb’s adventurous nature and love for travel took her to many places around the world meeting new friends wherever she went.  Deb loved her dogs Pepper and later Gabi and is now reunited with them. Deb will be remembered for many things but especially her sharp wit and her “Donn family” humour.

Deb was predeceased by her parents, Jim and Marie, her brother Jerry, sister-in-law Joan and her nephew Jim. Deb will be lovingly remembered by her brother Bob (Marilyn), nieces Cathy (Gauri) and Jeri-Lynne and a great many friends across the globe.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Deb’s name to Vancouver Humane Society (Vancouverhumanesociety.bc.ca) and/or Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS.org).

A Celebration of Deb’s Life with her family and friends will take place

    So sorry for your loss. Deb was a fun-loving person with so much life…which has been sadly taken away from her way too soon. I’ll miss her lots.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I met Deb on a sailing trip in the mid eighties. We quickly became allies and friends on that crazy, fun filled trip, especially during water fights on the dock at Princess Louisa inlet. I will miss Deb forever and am devastated by her loss at what seems a young age these days.

    Deb and I have been friends since we were both 4 years old and living in Port Kells. My siblings considered her another sister as growing up we were inseparable and hung out with all the neighbourhood kids – curling, skiing, biking and playing football in our cow pasture!

    She will be missed especially at the Christmas table where I liked to put her to work on finishing desert.

    Deb was such a vibrant person, I will miss her quick, quirky sense of humour.
