Donna Jean (Simpson) Schell passed away peacefully with family by her side, at the West Parry Sound Health Centre on Friday, February 16th, 2024. Age 63 years.

Beloved wife of the late Murray Schell. Loving mother of Clayton (Melissa), Chris (Natalie), and the late Lonnie. Cherished grandma of Evan, Alexis, Cobie, and Ava. Loving partner of Dan Cleveland. Fondly remembered by her siblings, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. Donna will be forever missed by her furry companions: Max and Sam.

The last few years of Donna’s life, her greatest joy was spending time at her RV cottage in Byng Inlet; this was her happy place.

As was Donna’s wish, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place in the spring/summer of 2024.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to the West Parry Sound Health Centre Foundation (Palliative Care) or OSPCA Muskoka would be appreciated.


Sending all my love ♥️

-Joanne and Jamie
