<div itemprop="description">ADAMACHE, ANA<br /><br />March 14, 1929 - December 24, 2014<br /><br />Dr. Ana Adamache passed away December 24, 2014 after a short illness. <br /><br />Ana will be deeply missed by her niece and nephew Dorina and Serban, grand-nieces Nora and Ellen, many relatives and friends. <br /><br />Ana was born in Romania in 1929 and graduated with a Doctorate in Medicine from the University of Bucharest. In 1954, the year when she graduated, Ana married Ion Adamache, an accomplished petroleum engineer. Ana and Ion risked their lives to escape communist Romania and immigrated to Canada in 1977, their adopted country where they started a new life. Through hard work and determination, at the age of 50, Ana completed all the requirements for the MD certification in Canada. Ana continued her long and successful career as a medical doctor with unwavering passion, until she retired in 1997.<br /><br /> Since retiring she spent much of her time around children. Inspired by them, Ana began to fulfill her lifelong dream to write stories that she hoped will arouse their curiosity and imagination, and guide them towards great accomplishments in their lives. Ana dedicated her two published children's books, &quot;The Sun Ray King&quot; and &quot;Pegasus, the Superhorse&quot; to her family who loved and believed in her.<br /><br />As a sister, wife, aunt, grand-aunt, friend, or family physician, Ana touched so many lives. She was a role model for compassion, forgiveness, and living with dignity. Ana encouraged and helped many members of the Romanian community in Calgary and was a faithful supporter of its religious establishment through donations and scholarships for young Romanians. <br /><br />If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the charity of their choice in Dr. Ana Adamache's name. Visitation will be held at LEYDEN'S &quot;Chapel of Remembrance&quot; (17 Avenue and 2 Street S.W.) Monday evening between 6 and 8 p.m. with prayers at 7 p.m. Funeral Services will be held at St. Vladimir's Ukrainian Orthodox Church, 404 Meredith Road NE at 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, December 30, 2014, with Burial in Queen's Park Cemetery.
