HENRY, Donna Eileen Peacefully with her daughter by her side, Donna Eileen Henry of Orillia passed away on November 27, 2017 at the age of 66. Once her daughter was in school, Donna set out to build a career of her own and graduated at the top of her esthetics class, opening First Impression Esthetics shortly thereafter in Orillia in 1982. She grew a thriving business and was fortunate to love her work, having many wonderful longtime clients who grew to be close friends. Donna enjoyed spending time in the garden, just as her own mom did, creating beautiful gardens admired by many. But she was also adventurous, from riding on the back of her daughter's scooter through the streets of Toronto to dining in a carport in Cuba (complete with wild dog running through during appetizers). She embraced everything life had to offer. Her loves included traveling, taking walks in whichever city she happened to be in, going to concerts with her daughter (Rhianna to Stevie Wonder and everything in between), spending time at the beach, and most of all spending time with her daughter and wonderful friends. Donna leaves behind her daughter, Avril Henry of Barrie, her Aunt Phyllis Morrison of Guelph, her good friends Terry and Kate Henry and their children, Laura (Amanda) and Liam (Natalie), her nephew Todd Lampron (Julie) of Massey, and her sister Sharon Ellis of London. Donna also leaves her dearest friends of many years, Mary, Gwen, Rosemary, Norma, Pat, Lorraine and Wendy. She is predeceased by her mother and stepfather Emily Eileen Mitchell (Barry), her brother Paul Renaud (Kathey) of North Carolina, and her father, Harold Renaud of Windsor. Avril would like to extend her deepest gratitude for the kind and compassionate care her mom received from Dr. Farn, the visiting nurses of Bayshore, the oncology team at OSMH, and OSMH nursing staff, Kat and Dawn, who provided amazing support during her Mom's last days. Following cremation, visitation will be held at Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West Street North in Orillia on Friday, December 8, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. followed by a Memorial Service in the chapel on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations to Operation Smile Canada would be most appreciated. We welcome your messages of condolence at www.mundellfuneralhome.com.
