Adriene Rae Shubkagel, 53, of Nathrop, Colorado passed away in Saguache, Colorado. She was born August 25, 1965 in Salida, Colorado to Butch and Lois Shubkagel. She graduated from Buena Vista High School with honors in 1983 and was one of two students chosen to attend the Presidential Classroom for Young Americans in Washington, D.C.
Adriene had a huge heart and cared for the elderly. Her “clients” loved Adriene and especially loved her ability to, not only care for them, but to have some fun and adventures too. She was wild at heart and loved adventure and exploring the mountains near Buena Vista and the San Luis Valley. As she walked through her favorite places, she gathered rocks to keep, which she treasured. Each held its own significance and beauty to her. She enjoyed music, attending concerts, making jewelry (wearing it and giving it as gifts) and she had endless compassion and love for animals, in particular her dogs Angel, Jojo, Quinn and little Ricky. She loved her family with a deep sense of commitment. Adriene’s smile and crazy sense of humor were contagious. She is at rest now and will remain forever in our hearts.
Adriene is survived by her father; sisters Martha (Tim) Shae, Suzy (Dan) Broxterman and “adopted” sister Dawn Palo; She is also survived by several close cousins and aunts, including Matthew, Lynne, Eric and April and her beloved Auntie Diana and Aunt Sharon; second cousins Veoria, Erica, Calvin, Brooke, Cody and Andrew with whom she shared a mutual adoration. She also had many dear friends including John Lynch, Brandon Lawrence, Yuri Frolov and her beloved pets. She was preceded in death by her mother, who was her biggest advocate, offering never ending support and love.
