Obituary of Donna Mazurek


January 24, 1951 – Wroclaw, Poland

August 12, 2023 – Calgary, Alberta


It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Donna “Danuta” Mazurek (nee Hadala) on Saturday, August 12, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.


Donna was born in Wroclaw, Poland on January 24, 1951 and immigrated with her family in 1966 in pursuit of a better life in Canada.


Donna was extremely loving, compassionate and always put other people’s needs ahead of her own. She was incredibly hard working and devoted to her husband, family and friends. Above all, her greatest joys in her life were her grandchildren. Donna was always happiest with a house full of people, making Sunday dinners and hosting holiday meals for her family. Her traditional cooking and baking were loved by all.


Donna was also dedicated to God and her parish. She taught the importance of Faith to her children. Donna loved to travel and over her lifetime, she was able to visit the many places she always dreamed of seeing.


Donna will be lovingly remembered by her husband Leon; her children, Mark (Lori), and Diana (Roberto); her grandchildren, Sierra, Mckenna, Noah, and Luca; her sisters, Sophie, Christine, and Grazina; and her brothers, Stan and Peter, and all their families.


Donna was predeceased by her parents Michael and Stefania Hadala.
