Danette Dawn Winkler
On Sunday, May 24th, 2020 Danette Dawn Winkler passed away, with family by her side, after a long battle with cancer. Danette will be lovingly remembered by her parents, Don and Elaine; siblings, Daemon and Darla (Rod); niece, Sarah; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; as well as her Citizens All family.
Danette was born on June 3rd, 1968 in Maple Creek, SK. She moved to Moose Jaw, SK with her family in 1980. Danette attended John Chisholm School and after graduating, moved on to Diversified Services. In 1998, she became part of the Citizens All House family and called the Hochelaga House home for the last 26 years. Danette’s favourite activities included camping, swimming at Temple Gardens, listening to music, and horse therapy. At home, she always had a book in her hand and her favourite snowman pillow at her side.
Although she did not say much, Danette’s big brown eyes spoke volumes. If you ever wanted her to do something, all you needed was a can of pop and some chocolate and she would be more than willing to comply. We want to give a big thank you to Genelle and the wonderful staff at Hochelaga House, the staff at Pioneer Lodge Memory Lane, Lena at Pharmasave, Dr. Kirk, Dr. A.J. VanHeerden, the staff at Diversified Services, as well as the nurses from Home and Palliative Care.
Rest in peace until we meet again.
Due to the current health situation, a Private Family Service will be held at a later date. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Danette’s name may be made to Tuberous Sclerosis Canada, PO Box 35057 Essa Road RO, Barrie, ON L4N 5Z2 or Citizens All Association, 410 Hochelaga St E, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 0P3. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Andrew Pratt Funeral Director 306-693-4550
