Donovan Einarson (Don, husband, father, grand father, great grand father) passed away quietly at home on Sunday, January 13 with the family he loved around him. His last wish was to remain in his own home. He had spent many days in hospitals in his last years and home was his comfort corner.
Don studied Pharmacy at the University of Saskatchewan and his pharmacy career spanned many decades.
Don met and married Beverly Harman, a young nurse and they lived and worked in Melfort. It was a faithful and loving marriage. Their daughter, Brenda Einarson, was born in Melfort. Sons Eric and Jon were born after the move to Luseland. The family explored the west many summers before settling in a summer getaway cottage at Turtle Lake. Family life was very important to him. His great capacity to love was extended with the birth of six grand daughters: Katherine Starling (Brice), Michelle Kuntz (Brice), Alexandra Brice, Virginia Brice, Dalynn McKay and Danae McKay. Great grand children joined the chain of love as years passed- Theo and Isla Kuntz, Stella and Kit Starling and these little people all came to his bedside in his last days.
Don had one sister, Carol Burns, who lives in London, Ontario.
He was a volunteer in many fields in his younger years- Kinsmen, school board, church board, Credit Union board, food bank, community choir. In 1997 he received the distinctive provincial Bowl of Hygeia Award for community service in pharmacy.
He was a multi faceted man of many talents- scholar, artist, poet, music and many interests but he was a modest human being who seldom spoke of this but quietly enjoyed them.
Heart felt thanks must go to the extended health care teams who treated him with skill and kindness- his doctor-friend Dr. Wentzel, the hospital team and the blessed Home Care team who helped me (the bossy wife-nurse) care for him in our home.
He was a unique and caring man loved by all his family and we shall miss him forever. At his request he will have a private family service.
