Kirby-Donovan, Angela

May 1960 - April 2022
ANGELA MARY KIRBY, M.ED., RP Angie Kirby Donovan With beams of light shining in prayer from friends and family, Angie’s spirit has taken flight on the wings of angels to be embraced in heaven by predeceased family members, Joan & Rip Kirby, Jon Kirby, Marnie & Bob Gilmore, Mary Polito, Ruth Agnew and Joyce Donovan. Within our family her loss is shared among husband John Donovan, son Lucas & Miranda, Chris Kirby, Cathy Kirby-Tapp & husband Dan, nephews Kevin & David, and nieces Mallory & Caroline, Uncle Joe & Andrea, cousins Anna, Joey & Kristin, and Brendon Polito, Teresa Agnew & Pat Wymes, Mary-Louise, Steven Agnew & Carol Consell, Denise & John Sellers, David & Jen Gilmore, John Gilmore, Judy Marshall & Tom, and Denise Donovan. Angie lit up rooms with her smile, compassion, and singing voice. Whether she was singing on center stage or tucked aside in conversation with long-time friends - she had the ability to touch people with laughter and love as a best friend and confidant. In a thirty year career in addictions and mental health Angie served her community by providing counsel and guidance to people in need. As Client Care Manager Community Treatment Services Mental Health and Pinewood Centre Program of Lakeridge Health, Angie worked tirelessly throughout Durham Region to deliver programs and shepherd a team of professionals dedicated to the welfare of residents in our community. She was so proud of the individual success of her fellow staff and overall their accomplishments. We also know of so many who share the family’s loss at this time. In retirement, Angie transitioned into private practice with a renewed vitality to work directly with those navigating life’s issues in a challenging time. We, her family, learned to share Angie’s passion with others and together we celebrate her beautiful life, her ability to meaningfully touch so many others in our community, as an advocate, a change maker, baseball Mom, sister, cousin, aunt, a great friend, and Lumina Lady.
