Donna Mae Schmid (nee Duncan) of Cambridge, Ontario passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Cambridge Memorial Hospital on Friday, September 2, 2022 at the age of 80. Loving mother of Greg (Michelle), and Christopher (Jason), and cherished Grandma of Lauren and Eric. Dear step-daughter of Elinor Powell, twin sister of Delle (Ray Longley), and also remembered by her sister-in-law Gail Duncan. Loving aunt to her many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her one true love Eric, her parents Gladys and Philip Duncan and her brother Allan Duncan.
Donna worked extremely hard successfully raising two young boys on her own. Her strength, independence and perseverance was so admirable.
Many memories were made throughout the years - competitive card playing in Glen Sutton into the wee hours of the morning, volunteering with the Burlington Teen Tour Band, family trips to Antigua, Florida and Hawaii, not to mention the cottage week tradition. She will be missed by all that loved her.
Cremation has taken place, and a private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Burlington Teen Tour Band as expressions of sympathy.
The family would love if you could please share any memories or photos of her life here on her memorial page.
