COOPER, Donna Ruth (nee Larson)

October 10, 1959 – November 10, 2010

Donna left us peacefully on November 10, 2010 at the age of 51 years. Her courage and grace in her battle with cancer is an inspiration.

Donna grew up in Red Deer and moved to Calgary in 1980. Donna was a wonderful mom and adored her daughter Kristen. Family was the most important thing to her. She was a kind and generous person who always put others first. Donna loved a good laugh, enjoyed many happy times with her family, and had a passion for anything related to Walt Disney. We will miss her dearly.

Donna is lovingly remembered by her daughter, Kristen, her mother Nell Larson, sisters Peggy (Jeff) and Barbara (Darrell), her nieces and nephews Bruce, Sara, Olivia, and Daniel, and many dear friends.

She was predeceased by her father, Clarence in 1975.

At Donna’s request there will be no funeral service held. Many thanks to Donna’s palliative care team at Foothills Hospital and Agape Hospice. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 29 Street NW, Calgary, AB T2N 4N2, Telephone: (403)944-1711 or The Calgary Humane Society, 4455 110 Avenue SE, Calgary, AB T2C 2T7, Telephone: (403)205-4455.

In living memory of Donna, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park, Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.
