RADFORD, Donna Mary Jacqueline (Wilson) – 91, died peacefully Wednesday evening, April 8th , 2020, in the Chartwell Westbury Long Term Care Residence, Etobicoke, Ontario. Born in her beloved west-end of Toronto, February 23rd, 1929, Donna was the daughter of the late John Austin Wilson and Edythe Montgomery Wilson. She is survived by her sons Mikal (Muriel), and John (Riitta). She was predeceased by her youngest son Timothy; sister Lois Marriott; brother John Wilson; and niece Mary-Francis Fox.
For most of her working career Donna was a social worker and administrator for Metro Homes for the Aged in Toronto. During retirement she enjoyed many winters as a “Snowbird” at her Port Charlotte, Florida condo, soaking up the sun, socializing, playing golf and participating in her award-winning bocce league. Donna loved baseball, especially the Toronto Blue Jays, and attended as many Spring Training games as she could. Although Donna was not able to experience the joy of grandchildren, throughout her later years many cats were her much-loved companions.
Regretfully, in the last fifteen years -- particularly after the death of her son, Tim -- Donna suffered from dementia and gradually went into decline. We thank the wonderful nurses and staff of The Westbury for Donna’s excellent care over the last few years.
Bon Voyage, Mom, we'll miss your bright smile and warm heart!
