June 14, 1945 - October 10, 2023
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and sister, Donalda (Molly) Flater on October 10th, 2023 at the age of 78 years old. Donalda was born to Stanley and Janet Molyneux in 1945. Tragically, Stanley died in a mining accident when Donalda was only 18 months old. She was later raised by Janet and her step-father, Ernie Boyce, along with her sister, Heather and brother, Douglas. Donalda was the kindest, sweetest lady so it was no surprise her chosen profession was nursing. She spent 42 years bringing comfort and compassion to her patients. In May 1967, Donalda met the love of her life, Alfred Flater. By September of that year they were married. (Donalda and Alfred just celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary.) Donalda was a proud mom to her two boys, Brian and Glen. She found great joy in taking care of her family. Her love will continue to be felt by her husband, Alfred; sons Brian (Marina), Glen (Rachel); grandchildren, Ash, Alyssa, Zach and Evan; and surviving brother Douglas. Donalda’s family would like to thank the amazing caregivers at the Drumheller Continuing Care. You are all angels in disguise. A private family service will be held in the future.
