Donna Anderson

June 22, 1925 - November 26, 2011


Mom (Grandma) was born in Chicago, Illinois on June 22, 1925. Five years later her family moved to Winnipeg where she was raised with her sister, Shirley. In 1947, one year after nursing graduation from Winnipeg General Hospital, she moved to Nelson. Donna met Wilbert and they were married in 1948. They farmed on Granite Road and in Lister and raised their three children – Karen, Carl and Ross. In 1964 Donna resumed her much loved nursing career at Kootenay Lake Hospital, part time until her retirement in the late 80’s. Over the years, she also involved herself with the Canadian Cancer Society, Granite Road Women’s Institute, and Nelson United Church. Which being a member of the Women’s Institute, she was heavily involved with writing the book “Granite Road Memories”. A large accomplishment in Donna and Wilbert’s life was the creation of Grohman Narrows Provincial Park. Throughout the years, Donna also enjoyed gardening and travelling. Donna was predeceased by her husband Wilbert and a son Ross. She is now survived by her daughter Karen, son Carl (Wendy) daughter in law (Allyn), four grandchildren Erin (Kris), Andrea (Steve), Trevor (Shantalla), Amber (Eric) and five great grandchildren Alyssa, Molly, Charlotte, Hazel, Jackson, and several nieces and nephews
