Donna Lorraine Perlitz (née Spycher) of Blackfalds, Alberta passed away after a brief illness, with her daughter by her side, on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at the age of 69 years.

Donna was one of five children in her family. She was a loving mom, grandma, auntie, and cousin; as well as a dedicated friend.
