Donna Mae Chorney passed away peacefully on May 17th, 2024 at the Drumheller Health Center. Donna was born to John and Laura Mckay in Dodsland Saskatchewan, the youngest of 5 children.

Donna loved singing and dancing and she took every opportunity she could to have people play and sing, she especially loved going to the Old Time Fiddler’s campout where she would dance and enjoy the music all May weekend long.

Donna also loved baking and cooking, her specialities were buns and fudge. Everyone who ever visited her home was welcomed with a huge smile, and before you even had a chance to sit down she was offering you an entire meal. Everyone was welcome in her home, and so was everyone they brought with them.

Donna fought a hard battle of cancer in 2004 and stayed in remission for 20 years. Donna was predeceased by her husband Danny, her sister’s Dorothy and Pearl, and her brother Lorne, 2 grandsons Skylar and Daylan, and her son in law, Ralph.

Donna leaves to mourn her sister in law Myrna Jones, (Ernie), her daughter Debbie Werbowsky, her son Kevin,(Sue), six grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, and many friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. Aaron Visser for keeping her comfortable in her final days, and the Doctors and Nurses in the Drumheller Health care for their wonderful care.

At Donna’s request there will be no service, a private family interment will be held in Sparwood at a later day.
