Francis Joseph Donaher (better known as Frank) of Miramichi passed away peacefully on Wednesday September 7, 2022 at the Miramichi Regional Hospital at the age of 84.
Frank was born in Nowlanville, New Brunswick on March 26, 1938. He was the eldest son of the late Stephen Thomas and the late Margaret Ellen (Wallace) Donaher.
He will be sadly missed by his wife, Gertrude (Flynn) Donaher of Miramichi; his daughter Lisa Roy (Darrin) of Miramichi; son Stephen Donaher (Deborah) of Moncton; two sisters, Mona Lordon (late John) and Barbara Lynch (Donald) both of Miramichi; three brothers Joseph Donaher (Theresa) of Fredericton, Gerald Donaher (Marie) of Miramichi and Harold Donaher (late Arlene) of Miramichi; one sister-in-law Maureen of Oakville, Ontario; four grandchildren Emily Roy, Matthew Roy, Ava Donaher and Alec Donaher; and several nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his brother Edward Donaher.
After graduating from Saint Thomas High School in 1956, Frank continued his education by becoming a Red Seal electrician by trade. He worked for 42 years in the pulp and paper industry and retired in 2000. In the workplace, he was known for his innovative thinking, work ethic and team spirit. His leadership style was fair and balanced, which led him to become a member of the union executive at some point in his career.
In his early years, Frank enjoyed spending time in nature at camps with his family and friends. A hunting trip in October or a fishing trip in May was always welcome, bringing back great memories and lots of laughs. Frank excelled in many sports such as basketball, baseball and bowling. He had a competitive nature no matter what he played and passed that spirit on to his children (especially his son). He was their biggest advocate and supporter, taking Stephen to the rinks (sometimes during snowstorms) and baseball diamonds, and Lisa to the University of Fredericton. His infinite wisdom and attentive ear will be forever missed.
The retreat then opened another chapter. He and Gert enjoyed traveling through Europe for a few years, with a landmark trip back to his roots in Ireland. They also enjoyed trips to Ontario to visit family and, over the years, shorter trips around New Brunswick. Family played an important role in his life. He loved when his sisters and brothers stepped in to have their say. He followed all the milestones of his children and grandchildren. He really liked everyone gathering around the dining room table to share a delicious meal and a bottle of fine wine. He was an entertaining storyteller (hey mom!), and those stories will live on with all who loved him dearly.
Frank was an avid reader, whether it was the newspaper, a biography, a book on history or space. He was intellectually curious and would love to share his new knowledge with his grandchildren! He enjoyed his time outdoors, taking walks or relaxing on the back patio with the sounds of nature. He and Gert loved spending time together and tackled puzzles and brain teasers together. They would share their success the same way they approached all things in life – united. He was also a man of deep faith and a practicing member of St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church.
At the request of the family, there will be no visitation. The Christian Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, September 10, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, with Father Godwin officiating. Burial will take place in the church cemetery immediately afterwards.
As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the St. Mary’s Restoration Fund or a charity of one’s choice.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Northumberland Funeral Home, 102 Pleasant St, telephone (506) 622-7741.

Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Francis Frank Donaher 2022..
