October 16, 1966- Siksika Nation, Alberta
August 22, 2013 – Strathmore, Alberta
It is with broken hearts, the family sadly announces the sudden passing of our dearly beloved sister and Aunt Donna on Thursday August 22, 2013 in Strathmore AB at the age of 46 years.
Donna or “Banjo Eyes” as she was called by family and friends was born on October 16 , 1966 at the Old Blackfoot Hospital.
Donna “Banjo Eyes” will be remembered for her humour and contagious smile and was the family’s “Nanny” as she helped raise many of her nephews, nieces, and other cousins. She was also known for her “cheekiness” but through her kindness, compassion and humility, she gained many special friendships. She also enjoyed attending family functions and always gave us loving hugs and would tell us, “We’ll see you again, okay” She shared her life with her partner and “best friend” Penny and her family, mother Evelyn, Dustin and James.
She will be dearly missed by her partner of seven years Penny Many Guns; her siblings Marie; Flora; Calvin (Verna); Jordan; Lyndon (Denalene); as well as, Esther (Andrew); Randa (Cody); Glenn (Stacey); Donna; Girly (Lamb); Trina (Wally); and her many nephews & nieces whom she cherished. She will also be missed by the following immediate families: Randy (Doreen); Frank (Trina) Turning Robe; Floyd (Mavis); Norman Running Rabbit; Wayne (Veronica) Old Woman; Stella (Neil); Rosebelle Turning Robe; Marie (Ed) Calf Robe; Ruth (Francis) Melting Tallow; all of Siksika Nation; Beverly (Tom) Runner; and Flora (Larry) Whitney of T’suu T’ina Nation and extended relatives and friends too numerous to mention.
Donna was predeceased by her loving parents Donald Broad Scalplock and Leona Cutter; brothers Gary and Merlin; and Donald Jr., grandparents, Rosa (Frank, Sr.) Turning Robe; Jack (Mary) Running Rabbit and Tom (Flora) Broad Scalplock; and other immediate family members; and most recently her brother in-law, Clement Poor Eagle
