Donna Elizabeth Reashore
Little Bras d’Or


We regret to announce the passing of Donna Elizabeth Reashore, 65, on Thursday, June 11, 2020, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
Donna was the daughter of the late Joseph and Helen (Dombeck) Reashore.
A proud Cape Breton Islander, Donna spoke fondly of memories of growing up on her family's chicken farm. She was a member of St. Joseph Parish, Bras d’Or. She spent the majority of her life raising her children and working in the community. A kind and generous woman, Donna always enjoyed working with and helping people. Over the years she worked at many local pubs, as well as with the mentally disabled and elderly in her later years. Having a drive and desire to improve herself, Donna was a lifelong learner. Over the course of her life Donna achieved certification in: retail merchandising, business education, teaching assistant, residential care worker and fine wood working.
Donna was proudly independent and enjoyed the challenges of home improvements, crafts and homemaking. She enjoyed swimming, skating, camping, bowling, crocheting, and fine wood working. The many hours she spent in the company of her grandchildren were cherished most of all. Grandma's cabbage rolls were a favourite and requested often.
A devoted mother, loving grandma, beloved sibling, loyal friend, kind neighbour and caring spirit, Donna was a truly beautiful soul whose time with us was cut short. Donna will be sadly missed, lovingly remembered and cherished in the hearts of those who knew her.
Donna will be lovingly missed by her children and grandchildren: Joe (Kelly) Marsh; Allison, Alexis, Abagail, and Angelica, Ronnie (Tammy) Marsh, Rowan, Rylan and Raylynn, Chris (Jade) Marsh; Jamal, Leo, Lucus and Lacy Love; Crystal (Bradley) Carriere; Sophia, Asher and Elijah; siblings Clayton Reashore, Linda Thompson, Yvonne Reashore, Frankie Reashore, Joan Colburn, Darlene Bragg, and Sherry Kennedy.
Besides her parents, Donna was predeceased by brothers Luke and Ronnie Reashore, and granddaughter Rose Carriere.
The family will be holding a private service to honour Donna's life. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name may be made to the Alzheimer's Society of Nova Scotia. Her children wish to thank everyone who generously supported us through kind actions, deeds and thoughts. Your care and concern is appreciated beyond measure. Words of comfort may be forwarded to her family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com
