Dona “Mae” Sebastian, 90, loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully at home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on February 27, 2018.

She was born on March 17th, 1927 in Clayton, New Mexico to James P. and Dona O. Law. She married Sidney E. Sebastian on March 29th, 1946, in Hale Center, Texas. They lived in Moab, Utah over 63 years. She provided food and poured many cups of coffee, for the Moab residents at the Canyonlands café and the Westerner Grill for over 18 years. Mae was a loyal member of the Church of Christ for over 60 years, and was involved in her children’s sport activities and school functions.

She is blessed and survived by four children: Donna Gail Holbrook (Eddie), Roland Earl Sebastian, (Jan), Rhonda Sue Sebastian, and Terrill Joe Sebastian (Ann). She has 10 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, and sister, Louise Higginbotham.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Sidney on July 9th, 2002, her brothers: Alvin, Pinky, Bud, Leroy, James, and sisters: Irene, Lois, and Pat.

A celebration of her life is pending at the Church of Christ on 456 Emma Blvd, Moab, Utah. A viewing will be held the night before from 6pm – 8 pm on at the Spanish Valley Mortuary, 386 N. 100 W. Moab, Utah. Mae will be laid to rest, next to her husband of 56 years, Sid, at the Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 2651 Spanish Valley Drive, Moab, Utah.

The family would like to thank the many friends and the Church of Christ family for their prayers, support and love they have shown to our mom during the last few years.


It was a Friday tradition for my dad, Bill Foote, and I to have lunch at the Westerner. Potato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Dona waited on us nearly every time. Seeing her was always a highlight of my day. She even offered to take me to Disneyland with her and her grandkids one time. But my favorite memory is the time she served me a grilled cheese sandwich without the cheese! She was a great lady and will be greatly missed by many. Thoughts and prayers to all her family and friends.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
