Donnagene F. Krumm

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donna at Chilliwack General Hospital. Donna was born in Prince George, while living in Giscome. At the age of six, her family moved to Vancouver and shortly after, moved to New Westminister, then to a farm in Aldergrove. At the age of 10 they moved again to a dairy farm in Matsqui, where she loved doing chores with her father. In 1965, at the age of seventeen, she married & moved to Edmonton, where her daughter Kerrie Giesbrecht, was born. Her family then moved back to Abbotsford, where another beautiful daughter, Sherri, was born. Her family then moved to Quesnel, where she lived for many years. In 1983, she married Lyle Kruum & together they owned Regal Jewellers, till they retired & moved to Campbell River. About three years later, they bought a sailboat & sailed around the world for three and a half years. What an exciting adventure for them! After returning, Donna was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease. Lyle & Donna then settled in Boston Bar, to be near to her daughter Sherri, grandchildren & great grandchildren. Fighting a losing battle, gracefully & always with a smile, Donna passed away peacefully with her loving family at her side. Donna is survived by her loving husband Lyle, daughters Kerrie (Dwaine Guy) Sherri (Jay Forman) sister Bonnie (Greg Laberge), eight grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, nieces & nephews. Donna was predeceased by her mom & dad, Glen & Jenny Tallman, sister & niece, Glenda & Jolene Giesbrecht & great granddaughter, Mackenzie Forman. Donna will be greatly missed by all.
