Donna-Marie Franczyk

April 17, 1966 - June 4, 2021


     With deep sadness, the family of Donna-Marie Regina Franczyk (Donna) announces her peaceful passing on June 4, 2021, at the St. Amant Centre.
Donna was born on April 17, 1966, the last child and only daughter to Karol and Janet Franczyk. Her birth brought much joy to her family after the unexpected passing of her brother Edward (Eddy).
At six months of age, Donna was diagnosed with Aicardi Syndrome. Although this syndrome took away her ability to communicate and interact with her family, her gentle presence was a blessing to them. As her physical needs progressed, Donna became a permanent resident of the St. Amant Centre. There, she received first-class care and attention. Her family enjoyed Sunday lunches, celebrations, and holiday get-togethers with her there.
Her life was a precious gift, her spirit resilient. She taught her family to be brave and strong, and most importantly, to love without limits.
Donna leaves to mourn her mother Janet; brothers Chris (Sheila) and Andrew (Sandy) and their families; several aunts, uncles and cousins; and her St. Amant family. She was predeceased by her father and brother as well as other family members and friends.
Thank you to the committed and caring staff at St. Amant. Your unparalleled love and dedication to Donna enriched her life with dignity and respect.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. Amant Foundation.
