Donna Myrna Yerxa

Donna was an incredible and determined woman who was born in Saskatoon and grew up in Alberta. She studied design in New York and received a Bachelor of Science in Textiles from the University of Alberta and after graduating traveled across the country to live in Toronto. She worked as a Commercial Interior Designer at the prestigious Art Shoppe in Toronto and Grand and Toy before starting her own business in Vancouver which was at Granville and Robson.

Her first daughter Holly was born in Vancouver and in wanting to be closer to nature the family ventured in to the interior to live in the Vernon area. Her second daughter Flora was born and both daughters thrived in the interior environment. She wanted to encourage a love of travel in her daughters.

Donna was creative in many ways - she did drawing about all she loved around her - gardens, flowers, birds, rhythmic gymnastics and interior design. In her struggle with Cancer she called on her Willpower and Creativity to survive. She helped in creating, with her twin sister, a book on self healing with eight angels. It is to be published in July 2007. She took the drawings and animated the angels so that they danced. Donna is now dancing with the angels in heaven and in charge of helping those that come and want to be creative. Thank you Donna to all the you have given us. We love you!
