Mark shared news of Alma's passing on Sunday

Alongside a video, he added: "My mom Alma's joy for life, love and people — combined with a pride in her humble beginnings and refusal to forget where she came from — undoubtedly shaped me into the man that I am. I've often said, if you like anything about me, I got it from Alma. I say that, because it's true. She was, without a doubt, the most loving human being I've ever known."

Alma was married to her husband Donald for 17 years but they divorced in 1982 after welcoming nine children - Arthur, Paul, Jim, Robert, Donnie, Mark, Michelle, Debbie and Tracey.

In July 2020, Donnie took to social media to share an update, revealing that she is "often confused but somehow still Alma."

"I know that so many of you have asked how my mom Alma is doing. During my visit, she didn't remember much, and was often confused, but somehow she was still Alma," he shared. "She still lights up a room. She still made me smile. She's still stubborn. And she still loves her baby Donnie. I thank you all, for your well wishes."
