MURDOCK, Donna Marie
Of Whitby, Ontario passed away unexpectedly at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto on October 28, 2022, at the age of 73. She was the beautiful daughter of the late John Henry and Elizabeth Katherine Sagriff (nee Dwyer). Survived by her dear sister Sharon (Adrian) Droog of Corbyville, Clinton Sagriff of Odessa and Josephine (Frank) Prevost of Shannonville. Predeceased by her devoted husband James Murdock, her brothers James, Edwin, Laverne, Firmen Sagriff and sister Anglea Fletcher. Donna was the loving mother of Shauna Marie Patterson (Scott) of Whitby, Ryan Michael Patterson of Fenlon Falls and Jeff Bryan (Debbie) of Kelowna B.C. She was absolutely adored by her grandchildren Kaysen, Keaton, Karlee, Alisha and Coltin. She will be greatly missed by her many nieces and nephews. Donna will be forever remembered by her many friends from Bell Canada and the Seniors Center in Whitby, Ontario. Donna cared deeply for her family, friends and neighbours. She did this not out of obligation, but simply because of who she was. There are very few people in this world that you cannot say one negative thing about and Donna was one of them. Her words were always kind, gentle and encouraging and she spoke them softly. She doted on her precious dogs Jake and Emma which will be carefully cared for by her children. She was passionate about gardening and created an absolutely stunning flower garden that was curated over many years. She enjoyed lunches with her friends, classes at the Whitby Senior Center and spending time with her cherished grandchildren. The pain of missing you will be a beautiful reminder of the absolute joy of loving you..
