Her final curtain call has sounded and she will dance no more. It is with great sadness that the family of DONNA IRENE MARSHALL(nee Read) announce her passing Dec 8, 2016 at Matthew’s House Hospice in Alliston after a brief struggle with cancer.

Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.
~ W.B. Yeats



Once a Blue Angel, she now dances among them. Donna danced her way throughout her life.

Jerry, a man with a seemingly hard-shelled exterior, will forever be remembered as a tender and kindhearted man who deeply loved, and is eternally loved, by his family, friends, and especially his rock and soulmate, Sue. His greatest pride were his children, Tim (Brianne), Kim (Jeremy), Krystal (Gannon) and Karly (Chris), who will forever miss and love him. He cherished being Papa to his precious grandchildren, Gage, MyaSue, Weston, Selena and Jase who all adored him just as much.

Jerry will also be deeply missed by his beloved siblings Bev (Dave), Moira (Dean) and John (Linda) and by his nieces and nephews.

Special thanks to Dr. Harvey Williams who went above and beyond to help Jerry, and to all of the Nurses and staff at the Bowmanville Hospital, whom Jerry affectionately called his “Angels”. Heartfelt gratitude is extended to all of our friends and family who were there in so many ways over the last few months.

At Jerry’s request, there will be no service, but a celebration of life is scheduled for Thursday October 13th.
