It is with broken hearts that we share the news of Dana Chantal Hungar’s tragic passing as the result of a motor-vehicle accident on November 23rd, 2023 at the age of 37 years. Dana is survived by her parents Ken and Carol Hungar and brother Derek Hungar; aunts and uncles Shirley (Dale) Linderman, Ron (Shirley) Hungar, Linda (David) Roberge and Hazel Hurtak; cousins Austin Linderman, Sarah Hungar, Nicole (Logan) and Hudson Bruiners. She was predeceased by her grandparents Godfrey and Helen Hungar, John and Shirley Hurtak , her uncle Darrel Hurtak and her best friend James Kenney. Dana will be dearly missed by her loving family and many cherished friends. She will be remembered for her free spirit, beautiful smile, infectious laugh, keen sense of humor and incredibly kind heart.
Dana was born and raised in the Crowsnest Pass. She was a gifted athlete excelling in almost all school and community sports and demonstrated an amazing talent and passion for fastball, especially pitching. From the ages of ten to eighteen Dana and the Elkford Thunder fastball teams played in numerous provincial tournaments and were invited to the under 19 Western Canadian Tournament in Brandon, Manitoba. Dana loved the competition, socialization and the forging of lifelong friendships.
Dana had a great love for all animals. She loved the outdoors and all it offered such as camping, fishing, swimming, goose hunting, horseback riding and especially skiing and golf. Therefore, after high school graduation, it was only natural to start out in the work force as a ski instructor at Banff and later as a life guard. Dana also worked in the service, landscaping and coal industries and more recently managing the Cinnamon Bear Bakery in Coleman. Dana was an extremely talented and creative cook, an avid reader and gardener. She loved flowers. Dana’s life was not without its trials and tribulations but she made every effort to help others and she strived to become a better person. Her little Hillcrest home at Noni’s and Papa’s was a true sanctuary where she could plant those flowers, relax and reset with Maggie, her best friend and constant companion. Maggie was a little, black Labrador retriever who loved and was loved unconditionally. Dana was always travelling to visit her many special friends and seldom was Maggie left behind.
In all your travels past and in all your travels yet to come, you will never find a better friend.
John 15:13 KJV - Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
A celebration of life will be announced in the Spring of 2024.
