With broken hearts and tear stained eyes, we announce the passing of our wife, daughter, mother, and grandmother Donna Hope Coe at the age of 59 years.  

Donna was born in Wawa, Ontario on April 14, 1960 and was the youngest daughter of Iown and Bobby Quarrell.

Donna Hope died on December 19, 2019 with her family affectionately beside her.

Donna Hope was most proud and loved deeply her grandchildren Koty Prinn-Coe, Owen, Julie and Pax Coe.  These little people made her laugh and were the joy of her life.

Donna Hope will be sadly missed by her husband Raymond, her sons George and Graham (Shelby).  

Donna housed the local boys coffee club daily with her brother-in-laws and friends Richard, Ronald, Doug, Mike and Randy.  The boys will miss her serving coffee and "homemade" cookies.  

Donna loved and admired all of her sisters-in-law Colleen, Diane, Rose and Anne and many nieces and nephews.  Donna Hope has three brothers Rodney, Robert (Lorraine) and Randy (Ursula) Quarrell and one sister Heather Gagnon (Alex) who will miss her dearly.

Donna Hope became a mother of two beautiful sons George and Graham.  She went on to earn her nursing degree at age 35 and worked hard to gain a nursing career at the Sault Area Hospital.  She was respected by her co-workers who lovingly took care of her when she became ill.

Donna's friend Donna Krezek was loved like a sister.  They went to school together, worked many long nights at the kitchen table studying and remained two great friends still.

Raymond and his sons George and Graham will have a memorial at 2 pm on April 18, 2020, at 247 Doncaster Rd, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.  It will be a come and go with food and refreshments to share memories.  All friends and relatives are invited.  

Memorial contributions made payable by cheque to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation - Critical Care Fund would be greatly appreciated.
