MURRAY – Donna Louise

October 13, 1940 – April 27, 2011

Donna Louise Murray of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 at the age of 70 years.

Donna was born and raised in Delisle, SK. She moved to Calgary, AB in 1979 with her family. Donna loved children, working in a day care and later beginning her own day home. When Donna no longer looked after children, she began a pet sitting service in her home. She will be remembered as a loving grandmother who enjoyed spending as much time as she could with her granddaughter, and as a caring mother to anyone in need, and will be remembered as “Mama Chip” to many.

Donna is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Joanne and Darrell Ellis; son Jeff Chiperzak; granddaughter Sarah Ellis; sister Coral Carlsenius; brother Mel (Charlotte) Murray; and sister-in-law Karin Murray; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by two brothers Keith Murray and Dale Murray.
