BYERS, Donna (Dewbury)
July 3,1954 - August 10, 2021

"In the depths of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer." - Albert Camus

With much sadness and after a year-long battle with cancer, Donna has found peace. . . Donna's journey in this life, began in Listowel, Ont. She's left behind her loving husband of 45 years, David Byers. Cherished mother to Heather (Andrew Rivers) and William. Beloved grandmother to Henry, Sophie, Harper and Rebecca. Donna was predeceased by her father, Fred Dewbury and survived by stepmother Marion Dewbury; and siblings: David Dewbury (Laurie Goodhand), Don Dewbury (Dianne Frank-Stadler), Dorothea Kedzierski (Fred Fisher), Deborah Langley (Dominic) and Mary Jane Blackport (Todd). Sister-in-law to Marcia Armstrong (Andrew Payer) and special godparent to Andrea Kedzierski. She also leaves behind many loved nieces and nephews.

Donna was easy to talk to - a humble listener and good friend to many. She was a nurturer and loved her family. She was happiest, when talking about her children, grandchildren and loved being involved with their activities. Highlights of each year revolved around family birthdays and celebrations - especially Christmas.

Special thanks to the many London Cancer Center doctors and caregivers Donna encountered on her journey, along with the St. Elizabeth Healthcare team and the St. Joseph's Hospice for their work and gentle kindness.

Cremation has taken place and an Inurnment Ceremony will follow, along with a 'Celebration of Life', all to be held in the fall (notice forthcoming). In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Salvation Army, St. Joseph's Hospice, or simply show 'unsolicited acts of kindness" Arrangements are entrusted to the Brock and Visser Funeral Home Thamesford Chapel, 519-285-2427.
