October 10, 1943 – April 1, 2021
Donna Belle Coulter (MacDonald) passed away peacefully in her sleep at the QEII Hospital in Grande Prairie due to complications of diabetes and dementia at the age of 77 years.
Donna was born in Calgary and raised by her adoptive parents in Drumheller, she then married Lynne Coulter there in 1963. She was a hairdresser for 30 years before completing her GED, then the Office Administration Program at Grande Prairie Regional College later in life. She then worked for more than 10 years as an office manager.
Donna and her family lived in Drumheller, Sherwood Park, the Ponoka area, and Grande Prairie as Lynne followed employment opportunities. Donna was a longtime member of Lions Clubs International- joining first the Ponoka Lioness, and then the Grande Prairie Lions when females became eligible for membership.
She served as district governor in 1995 to 1996, and as a council chairperson in 2009 to 2010. She was instrumental in the development of the Lions Learning Centre in Grande Prairie.
Donna is survived by her husband Lynne, son Ken and his daughters, sister Patricia (Brian Stevenson), in-laws Eugene and Susan Coulter, Dawn and Donald Atkinson, daughter in-law Tammy Coulter, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents, her son Rob, daughter-in-law Tricia, and sister-in-law Margaret.
The family offers special thanks to Riza and her staff at South Valley Residence, the staff at Valleyview Hospital, the staff at QEII Hospital, EMS staff and AHS Home Care staff for their care and consideration of our wife and mother.
Due to Covid restrictions, a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
