February 3, 1934 -September 4, 2014
Donna Lee (Alexander) Engel was born in Calgary on February 3, 1934. On September 4, 2014, while under the excellent care of the Foothills Hospital staff, her spirit went back to God who gave it.
Donna is survived by her loving husband, Earl Engel, her daughter Lisa (Greg Reid) McCreadie, her son Gregory (Sherry) Engel, three grandchildren, Alexander McCreadie, Megan McCreadie and Jarrett McCreadie, brothers Keith (Vanessa) Alexander, Lance Alexander and Jack (Phyllis) Alexander, as well as numerous well-loved extended family. Donna was predeceased by her beloved sister Hazel, and her parents, Robert Alexander and Laverne (Vaughn) Alexander.
There are no adequate words to describe the sorrow we feel at the loss of such a beautiful, kind, faithful person, and no words to describe the joy we feel at having been blessed enough to know her. Everyone who knew her knew how blessed they were. Donna possessed a wonderful sense of humour, faith that gave her peace, and an intense love for her family. Mom, we love you and we miss you.
A Memorial for Donna will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 1:00 pm at St. Giles Presbyterian Church (1102 – 23 Avenue N.W.) In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer’s Society. Forward condolences to http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/calgaryherald.Print This Obituary & Condolences
