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.
A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, July 4, 2019 at 2:00 pm at a private ranch in Buena Vista. Directions to the event are: .8 miles south on CR 339 (turn at drive-in). Friends are welcome to wear their favorite tie dye or concert tee (preferably Fleetwood Mac or heavy metal). A Reception will be held immediately following the celebration of Adriene's life at 656 S. Gunnison in Buena Vista. Inurnment will be held later at the Antioch Cemetery in Frankfort, Kansas. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Arkansas Valley Humane Society at 701 Gregg Drive in Buena Vista.

Sending the whole family hugs and prayers at this difficult time. There are no
words to say at times like this. Just know you are being thought of! When I shared the news with my mom, Donna Hamilton /jursch she shared with me that she started Kindergarten with Butch and eventually ended up graduating with him from Leadville High School! Something I never realized before! I remember Adriene as being a couple of years ahead of Marty and I in school and she was always so bubbly and smiling. Take care-Laura Hamilton Crandall

May you soar on the wings of the white winged dove. Like a good dust woman, taken to the sky.

Rest in peace, my dear.

I am praying for your family during this time. My heart is heavy and although I haven't been in contact with Adriene outside of social media, I am sad and know that my "family" I grew up with are grieving. I will be with you all in spirit as you celebrate the life of an amazing individual. Love to all the Shubkagel family.
