Donna Elizabeth Catherine Reeson



Donna, our cherished wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, peacefully passed away on Monday, September 25, 2023, at the age of 93. She took her last breath surrounded by her loving family at Pasqua Hospital in Regina. Donna is survived by six of her eight children, namely Rick (Katya) Reeson of Edmonton, Holly Reeson, Peggy (Terry) Linder, and Sarah (Kevin) Bodnar, all residents of Regina, Jody (Tom) Rice of Climax, SK, and Ken (Paulette) Reeson of Spruce Grove, AB. Additionally, she leaves behind a legacy of grandchildren and great-grandchildren who brought immense joy to her life.

Born on February 17, 1930, Donna spent her formative years in Regina. She tied the knot with Ken Reeson on September 15, 1950, and together they raised eight children. Donna’s fondest memories were of her bustling home filled with children and at least one beloved dog. She found great delight in spending time with her family at Regina Beach, relishing in preparing extravagant meals, watching her children swim, and embarking on adventures across the prairie in search of idyllic picnic spots for roasting hot dogs. Deeply spiritual, she instilled her beliefs in her children through Sunday School and church groups. She further shared her love for music by playing the piano and organ, finding solace in the melodies and serenading others with her beautiful talent.

A passionate traveler, Donna accompanied her husband as he served as the president of various monument industry trade organizations in the United States. She hosted wives’ luncheons, engaged in craft activities, and savored the touristic experiences. Donna took pride in her Scottish heritage and frequently adorned the McBain tartan during Scottish events. With a fierce love for her family, she possessed a strong spirit and a remarkable wit. She had a penchant for gifting flowers to friends and family, a generous gesture that embodied her true essence as her name, Donna, means “lady.”

A Funeral Service will be held in honor of Donna at Speers Funeral Chapel in Regina, SK, on Monday, October 2, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. Following the service, a luncheon will be served, and the interment will take place at Riverside Memorial Park. Flowers are gratefully accepted, and memorial donations can be made to either the Regina Humane Society or the Hospitals of Regina Foundation, Palliative Care.
