It is with heartful sorrow that we announce the passing of Donna Heather Ludford (Munn) of Mazerolle Settlement, NB, on May 11th, 2024.

Donna is survived by her husband of 49 years, Richard Ernest Ludford.  She and Richard met in December of 1973 and were married On July 26th, 1975.  She is also survived by her three children, Sarah Brooks (Stephen), Dennison Ludford and Harry Patrick Ludford (Carrie), as well as four grandchildren (Sophie, Deacon, Ada and Freya). 

Donna was born in Fredericton to Helen Marie Munn (Hodgson) and Donald Telford Munn on August 20th, 1954.  Along with her brother Gary, she grew up surrounded by family and farm life on the Doak Road on the outskirts of the city.  She enjoyed the country life, spending much time with her grandparents, riding horses and rambling around with friends.  She was an independent and free soul from a young age.

She was part of the Graduation Class of 1972, the first class of the new Fredericton High School.  Upon graduation Donna worked in secretarial and accounting fields for Dr. Mike MacKenzie, Industrial Machine and Iron and NB Power.  With the birth of their first child Donna made it her priority to become a homemaker and raise her family.  She felt it was important to volunteer her time at her children's schools and with various organizations about Fredericton.  She was also an active member of the Girl Guides of Canada for more than a decade, through which she made some life-long friends.  Donna was an avid gardener.  She felt it was important to raise her family on home harvested crops.

Donna's passion outside of her family and friends was her desire to travel.  She enjoyed visiting different locations and experiencing what those cultures had to offer.  She had a zest for life and felt it was important to take risks.  When she wasn't dreaming of vacations she could be found having "coffee with the girls", catching up on family news, local gossip and sharing pictures of grandchildren.

The family is ever grateful to the Oncology staff of both the Saint John Regional and Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospitals and the staff of the Hospice House in downtown Fredericton. 

Visitation will take place on Saturday May 18th, 2024, from 7-9PM at Bishop's Funeral Home. Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society and the Hospice House of Fredericton.

Bishops Funeral Home & Crematorium 540 Woodstock Road Fredericton have been entrusted with the arrangements. The online sharing of memories & condolences can be made at
