July 30, 1920 – June 5, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Donatela Alonso on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 in Calgary at the age of 91 years.
She came to Calgary in October 1976 with her family. She cared deeply for her family and was always happy to hear about their lives. Donatela always imparted to her grandchildren advice and was always willing to listen. She spoke to them of four values to success to which she lived by: faith, family, education, and saving. She has graced the family with her long life and she will be greatly missed.
She is survived by her eight children, Roberto Alonso (Ana), Willy Alonso (Irene), Uly Alonso (Florence), Leila Alonso, Donna Galang (Paul), Edelle Huck, Trinity Alonso (Jocelyn) and Myra Valencerina (Rene); as well as her numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Memorial Mass will be celebrated at Holy Spirit Catholic Church (10827 – 24th Street S.W.) on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
