Donna Sarazin

Obituary of Donna Sarazin

Donna Sarazin, of Ottawa, Ontario peacefully passed on March 29, 2022, with her life partner Jack Verheyden by her side. At the age of 62, she was too young, beautiful, caring and still full of life to leave us so soon.


Donna was born on April 8th 1959 predeceased by her parents Lonnie & Marjorie Sarazin and brother Michael.  She will be deeply missed by her brother Jim of Kingston and his children Gina and Jason as well as her closest relatives, Marion and Adrian.


A deeply thoughtful person, Donna was charismatic, upbeat, and kind to everyone she met. With her quick wit and positive ways, Donna made friends easily and kept many for life.  Two of her closest – Carolyn Eckersley and Iriss Gibbons – were by her side in her final days.


Jack was the love of her life and best friend.  Devoted to each other, together they shared life’s adventures including a wonderful time living aboard their sailboat in the Caribbean.


She leaves a huge hole in the hearts of her family and friends. She truly brought the life to the party, and we were lucky to be in her circle of care. Donna, we miss you, we love you, and look forward to meeting again.


Family and close friends will hold a private celebration of life on May 1, 2022.
