McDougall: It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our wonderful mother Donna Jean Maxine McDougall (McKenzie). Mom was born on a farm south of Margaret, Manitoba on May 1, 1930 to Nina Maxwell McKenzie. She grew up on the farm at Nesbitt, Manitoba, spending many happy hours with her cousins by the dozens, attending Bertha school then high school at Minto while living with her Aunt Alice McKinnon and special cousins. After completing high school Donna attended business school in Brandon and worked at the McLeods store. Mom married our dad Stewart McDougall on December 9, 1950. They farmed in the Forrest area before moving to the farm at Carroll which continues to be farmed by family. Eight children were born from this union. Surviving Donna are Del (Joyce) and Garry McDougall of Nesbitt, Manitoba, Linda McDougall of Edmonton, Alberta, Gaye (Brad) Guy of Westlock, Alberta, Anne (Bob) King and Heather (Mel) Morrison of Red Deer, Alberta.

Grandma’s great grandchildren; Avery and Brynn Cullen, Lauren, Logan and Jack McEvoy, Kallan and Karter McDougall, Brooklyn, Mason and Keegan Guy and Marley Rempel. Each new generation of children brought Grandma so much joy to her heart. Donna was predeceased by her husband Stewart in 1975, daughter Wendy in 2013 and son Larry in 2015. As per Mom’s wishes a private family graveside service will be held at the Carroll Cemetery.
