It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved sister, mother, grandmother, and friend, Donaleen Sharon Mader of Calgary, who passed away on Wednesday, May 28, 2008 at the age of 69.
Donaleen was a loving, gentle lady, who selflessly gave of her time, with an amazing gift of listening with compassion for all who needed support.
She will be lovingly remembered by her brother and sister-in-law, Doug and Barbara Mader; sister-in-law, Margo Mader; her daughters and their spouses, Marlie and Steve Burtt, Denise and Jim Corbett, Nici and Bryan Baughman, and Andrea and Jeff Bowling; her grandchildren, Alyssa, Lyndie, Leslie, Hayley, Jillian, Pamela, Justin, Katy and Amy; and many extended family and friends including David and Laverne Boechler. She was predeceased by her father and mother, Don and Ruth Mader and her younger brother Bob.
