It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Gloria Kathaleen O’Donnell on April 18, 2020 at the Orchard Villa Retirement Home, at 87 years of age. Beloved wife of James William O’Donnell (predeceased), loving mother of Michael James (Tracey) and James Gordon (Kim). “Grammie” will be missed by her grandchildren Robert, Kathryn, Madilyn and Jack. Given the current pandemic, an appropriate celebration of Gloria’s life will take place at a later time when we can all celebrate her life together. The date and time will be sent out when those arrangements have been made.
The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Gloria’s memory to the Princess Margaret Hospital. As an over twenty year cancer survivor, Gloria appreciated the excellent care she received all those years ago allowing her those extra years. The family would like to pass along a special thank you to all the caregivers at the retirement home who worked so hard, under extraordinarily difficult circumstances, to care for Gloria during her last few days.
