Obituary for Donna Elaine Besteck

Donna Elaine Besteck (LaBossiere) was born in Winnipeg Nov 2, 1959 and lived all but 2 yrs of her life in Winnipeg.

Donna enjoyed working with people, especially children, and she worked in daycare, and part time foster care. Donna also enjoyed customer service and her combination of skills, personality, patience, and compassion, got her a "dream job" at Health Science Centre as a unit clerk in Emergency and later the HIV clinic where she worked for 10 yrs.

Donna was predeceased by both parents and daughter Andrea Elaine in 1984.

Mourning her passing are her husband of 35 yrs Terry Besteck, sons Justan and Drew, daughter Janine, grandsons Nico Raja and Jaxon Besteck, brother Darrel LaBossiere, sister Diane, as well as many other friends and family. A special thank you goes out to the doctors and medical staff and friends at Health Science Centre, especially Kelly and Shauna, for all their help and support in this difficult time. Donna touched so many lives, but always said it was them that touched hers. Donna passed away in her sleep Dec 7 after a courageous 2 yr battle with cancer at the age of 61.

Her pain is no more - Rest in peace.

Donna has been cremated and will join her daughter at Brookside Cemetery.

I am so sorry to hear about my friend's passing. We were friends for near 25 years. Even though distance separated us, we still talked on FB and we had such great conversations. I am so glad that we got to visit and be silly together (oh did we giggle) a couple of years ago before I headed back to England. We were there for with each other through thick and thin. She was a beautiful human and always was so positive even through crappy times. My heart goes out to you Terry, Justan, Drew and Nini. Love you and sending hugs your way.
