Donna Lanza (nee Frayne) passed away peacefully on June 23, 2016 at the Grand River Freeport Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario after a short illness due to cancer. She leaves behind Bob, the love of her life, her children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews and friends.
Donna was born and raised in Hamilton. Over the 52 years of marriage to Bob, she took charge of setting up new family homes, schooling arrangements, family social life, extracurricular activities for children, etc., in Hamilton, Halifax, Saskatoon and Kitchener.
She was a wise, compassionate and generous woman who always offered help to the less fortunate and needy. Donna was the go-to person when family and friends sought advice on what to do at difficult times. She was forthright and never candy-coated the solution to a problem. She told it the way it was; if you did not want the truth, you best not ask Donna.
This exceptional woman will be missed by all those that she touched.
A celebration of life will be held at the Deer Ridge Golf Club on Sunday July 3, 2016 from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Family and friends are welcome to join in.
