Donna Marie Mason, formerly of New Waterford, N.S. went to be with her Saviour on September 17, 2022. She was surrounded by her four children and her sister Lana, who was Donna's faithful support throughout her life.

Donna was born Oct. 27, 1960, to parents Tom and Mary Mason. She is survived by siblings, Lee; Betty (Kevin Pastuck); Madlyn (Kevin MacNeil); Lana (Garry Johnson); Mary Julia ( Fabian Henry) and brother Tim (Brenda). She is also survived by daughters Nicole (Anthony Orlando); Angela (Chris DeCuir) and Kayla and her son Trent (Fox). Trent's partner Cypress had a special relationship with Donna.

Donna also leaves behind five grandchildren, Kambre, Jayden, Kinley, Cohen and Liam. They were the light of her life and brought much joy to her heart. In her last years, as her health declined and work demands changed, Donna embraced every opportunity to share time with her family and attended as many of her grandchildrens' concerts, games and events as she could.

After achieving her RN through the 'C.B. Regional Hospital School of Nursing' in 1992 Donna, Nicole and Angela (McIntosh) moved to Beaumont, Texas where she lived most of her adult life. She was a self proclaimed "Beach Girl" and was drawn to the sun, sand and warmer climate, and a fresh start in her life. She later remarried and had two more children Kayla and Trent (Fox).

Donna built her life around her family and her work. She was a dedicated mother and an exemplary Nurse. The gratifaction she recieved from her patients warmed her heart and fuelled her passion for her work. While she missed her homeland of Cape Breton, her life in Texas was where she wanted to be. She became our "Texas Star"; our "Yellow Rose of Texas" sister!

While her time on this earth was cut short, Donna's spirit of "the overcomer" battled until the end. She found her Lord and Saviour through her struggles. Therefore, we are confident that we will see her again. We will find her sitting on a beach, with the "Son" beaming brightly and a smile on her face. Until then, rest in peace dear one.
