I was so sorry to hear about Donna she was always funny and she lit up the staff room with her beautiful spirit at Our Lady of Peace. I had an opportunity to work as an ERW in Donna’s Classroom & my son Shawn who was a new teacher also worked with Donna and I will always remember her as an incredible teacher!!! My thoughts & prayers are with the family.
So sorry to hear the passing of Donna. My condolences to the family. Jody gardner
Mrs cook never taught me during my time at OLOP..but she did have a few of my friends and I make the little graduation hats for the sk going into grade one..it was just a nice break out of class :)...and and she treated us so well that you would anything for mrs cook. As the years went by I learned that she became a kindergarden teacher and when it was time for my son (who had some challenges) was ready for jk I had my heart set in Mrs.cook being his teacher and during the enrollment night in jan of 2017..we talked and laughed (with her contagious laugh) until they were kicking us out of the school. Unfortunately mrs.cook didnt return when my son was suppose to start jk that year and I was so worried for her and saddened (his current teacher is WONDERFUL) I always had her in my prayers and we send our deepest condolences to her family from the OREILLY-GARCIA

Dearest Nikki and Doug, My sincere condolences for your loss of such a wonderful, loving soul. Donna will very much be missed but she will never be forgotten. I hope you can find some peace and comfort in the cherished memories that you hold dear to your heart. As per your wishes, a contribution will be made to Teen Ranch. Rest in peace Donna.
Our deepest and sincerest condolences to her family and friends. We have had the pleasure of our children being taught by Mrs Cook. She always had a smile that lit up the darkest cloud's. Mrs Cook motivated, enlightened, and encouraged the children she taught. Even when she was no longer their teacher. Children would always go back to OLP just to visit her. She truly cared about the children and they truly cared about her. As parents we just want to say THANK YOU Mrs Cook for all that you have done for our children. We wish there were more like you, but you are truly one of a kind. Our memories of you will forever be charished in our hearts. You will forever be loved and missed by the Robinson family.
Mrs. Cook will be truly missed by the Mingoes Family. She taught all three of my children and we loved her ever so much she was my friend ....full of life and compassion....she loved all the children she taught and truly cared about each and everyone of them.....we spent a lot of time on the phone laughing and talking catching up on pass and up coming events. Mrs. Cook has definitely left her foot prints on my heart and there she will forever remain.. From our Family to yours please accept your condolences.
Mom and her dear friend Jane

Donna was my second grade teacher at Our Lady of Peace. She was my BY FAR my favourite teacher I've ever had. I will always remember her fondly. She was such a warm, kind, gentle and fun person. She inspired me to become a teacher myself. I'm so sad to hear of her passing.
Donna's kindness, love of teaching and light hearted sense of humour will be missed but not forgotten. Heartfelt condolences to the Cook and Jamieson families for your great loss.
Donna was such a fun-loving, vibrant woman. It was such a pleasure spending time with her. She will be deeply missed.
Mrs. Cook was also the favourite teacher of Danielle Loescher and many other students at Our Lady of Peace. She will be missed. Danielle
