Funeral For: Donna Lynn Pereira
Funeral Date: February 11, 2024
With heavy hearts we are sad to announce Donna Lynn Pereira (Sobering) passed away peacefully in her home after a courageous battle with cancer on February 1, 2024 surrounded by loved ones.
Donna will be lovingly missed by and remembered by her husband of 34 years Mario and their three beautiful children Jesse, Jory, and Jia. Her mother Lena Sobering, brothers Ryan (Michele) Wayne (Debbie), Rick and many nieces, nephews, and friends. Donna was predeceased by her father Frank Sobering and her brother Mark Sobering.
Donna was born in Roseau, MN to Frank and Lena Sobering on November 25, 1970. She was the youngest of 5 children and the only girl. She was raised in Piney, MB completing her education at Shevchenko High School.
Donna met the love of her life Mario in 1985. They were married on August 18, 1990. Donna was a loving wife and mother. She had a huge heart for family and friends and was always willing to help anyone who needed it, even with the demands of taking over her father's mail delivery in Landmark. Donna had an amazing smile and infectious laugh. Her sense of humour was unique and she found the most ridiculous things hilarious.
Donna had an incredible love for dogs and would have happily taken every dog she met home.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Donna's memory to a no kill pet rescue shelter dear to her heart: Winnipeg Pet Rescue Shelter, 12-2727 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and palliative care team for their excellent care. The service for Donna will be held Sunday, February 11th at 2pm at Glen Lawn Funeral Home.
