March 9, 1947 - February 15, 2018
Donna Madeline Adams, formerly of Sherwood Park, passed away at the Foothills Country Hospice near her home of High River on February 15, 2018, at the age of 70. She is survived by her husband Roger Adams, her children Wes Borg, Graham Borg, Penni Doucette (Rene), Lisa MacPherson (Roger), Leanne Nash (Greg), Craig Adams (Susan) and Mark Adams (Lisa), as well as seventeen grandchildren, three sisters, two brothers, numerous friends, nieces, nephews and extended family. Donna was predeceased by her Mother, Blanche Hubenig, her father, Mike Hubenig and her brother, Danny Hubenig. Donna excelled at everything. She was a wife, mother, friend, musician, successful realtor, working artist and a warm and loving support system for anyone in need. Donna always had a pot of coffee on when receiving visitors, she loved to provide companionship and a little “Donna advice” to those she could see struggling with an issue for which a past event may have equipped her with some words of wisdom. She was a loyal friend and a staunch protector of her family. Working for over 30 years in real estate in the Sherwood Park and Edmonton area she was a no-nonsense business woman with a strong work ethic and a drive to be the best at everything she put her mind to. Donna won the woman’s club championship multiple times, and later the senior woman’s club championship at the Belvedere Golf and Country Club near Sherwood Park while she was a member. Retiring to High River in 2010, she quickly made more loving friends and began to concentrate on her art work, creating, displaying and selling her paintings and delighting in the process. High River truly felt like home and she loved to show her family and friends how she could see the mountains from her kitchen window. Some of her happiest times were entertaining family and friends with a great meal and cards or conversation. Donna faced challenges head-on, she was so strong. Whether it be the fire that destroyed her home near Sherwood Park, the flood in High River or later health challenges, she never waivered. She would say, “it is what it is, God has a plan”. She had faith and trust in God and her greatest wish was to watch over her family after her time on this earth was complete. For all of her accomplishments, Donna’s greatest joy in life was her care and commitment to family and especially to Roger, her loving husband of 30 years. A private family celebration of life for Donna will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Foothills Country Hospice who provided loving care for Donna in her last days or a children’s charity of your choice.
