Donna was a loving & devoted wife, mother, grand & great grandmother. As a young girl in Toronto, she was training in Lake Ontario to be a champion swimmer, but due to circumstances went to live with her grandmother in Palmerston. She met William Clarke and they were married in 1953. They settled in the Town of Listowel and made many friends. She was at one time very active in the Listowel Legion and enjoyed playing darts & cards there and loved dancing. In her last years she loved going on facebook & connecting with people. Donna was such a loving, caring & compassionate woman and will be missed by many.
