It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved wife, loving mother, grandmother, and friend, Donna Morrison on Friday, March 5th, 2021. She passed away peacefully surrounded by family after a 3 year battle with cancer. Donna was born on November 9th, 1948 and raised on a farm in the Westley District located north west of Moose Jaw, SK. She was educated at Marlboro Elementary School and attended high school at Riverview and A.E. Peacock Collegiate. Shortly after graduating, she met her husband Pat, who she was married to for 52 years. Donna had a very successful 39 year career in real estate, where she received numerous awards and worked her way to being the owner/broker of Block Brothers (Silver Sage Realty) in Swift Current, SK. After moving back to Moose Jaw, she continued her career as a successful real estate agent and also held several positions on the Moose Jaw Real Estate Board. Along with her real estate career, Donna also owned and operated a Fas Gas and acquired several rental properties with Pat. In her spare time she enjoyed yard work, home renovations, entertaining friends, and spending quality time with her pets; but her true LOVE was spending time with her family, grandchildren and organizing family suppers and events.
She was predeceased by her parents, Cecil and Kay Rathwell; and brother-in-law, Donald Morrison. Donna will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Pat; beloved puppy, Lola; children, Jeanette (Brian) and Bruce; grandchildren, Brooke and Steven; brothers, Vic and Scott; sister, Jennie (Leon); sisters-in-law: Mauraine, Gail (Barry) and Barb; brother-in-law, Bob (Tammy); as well as numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank the several doctors and nurses that assisted with her care, and offer a special thanks to Home Care and Pioneer Lodge Memory Lane nurses.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a Private Family Service will be held. Friends and Family are invited to view the service virtually on Friday, March 12th, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. by going to www.moosejawfuneralhome.com/webcast/.

Sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. Our thoughts are with you!
So sorry to hear of your loss. Donna was a very important part of my life. She was so strong and confident that I knew at a very young age I admired her. As I got older I was able to see how many different personas she embraced. Caring and dedicated mother first and fun loving and dedicated friend … and animal lover. She will be present in so many of us, as she shaped and was a role model for so many
What an amazing service. All that was said perfectly captured what an an amazing well rounded woman she was. Such a role model to everyone for accomplishing balance between business, family and fun. Going the extra mile for all that she knew. The picture montage was amazing. Not a dry eye when watching. Loved to see the sparkle she had in every smile. Thank you and again my condolences for your loss.
Deepest sympathy to Donna’s family . My thoughts and prayers to all the family
Pat and family
So sorry to hear about Donna’s passing. I worked with her through Real Estate and it was a pleasure to work with her.
Condolences to you and all your family. Julie Pineau
Pat, I am so very sorry to hear about Donna. I still remember the day that I met her like it was yesterday – in fact it was 24 years ago. She was our agent when we moved her from Winnipeg and we became friends from then. Sadly, I didn’t get to see her near as often as I would have liked to, but whenever we met up it was just like no time had passed.
Condolences to you, the kids, and your beautiful grandchildren.
My condolences to Bruce and family, your mom was always a very lovely and kind lady.
