Grieving fans of Mark and Donnie, Wahlberg’s late mother, Alma, shared some of her hilarious TV moments on social media.
Alma died yesterday at the age of 78 after battling dementia.
One fan tweeted a clip of the family’s A&E reality show, Wahlbergs, and wrote: “In memory of: Alma Wahlberg here’s one of my favorite episodes of #Wahlburgers from season 5 episode 8 – “The Fenway Way Back.” #RIPAlmaWahlberg @WahlburgersAE @DonnieWahlberg.”
The clip showed Alma making Donnie run laps around Fenway Park because he was late for a family game.
Donnie and his mom laughed as he ran into her arms eventually knocking her down on the field
Another hilarious clip from the first season of the show saw Donnie fail to keep his shop-a-holic mom focused on buying a gift for his then-girlfriend, Jenny McCarthy.
Yesterday Donny tweeted: “She was always an angel. Now she has her wings.
“Rest peacefully Alma. As Always, your Baby Donnie #RIPAlma”
Donnie shared an emotional video of fond memories with Alma, including footage of her rollerblading and being honored in a speech at a black-tie event.
He captioned the Instagram post: “I’m so blessed to have been brought into this world by, raised by, taught by and set on my life’s path by, such an amazing woman. 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. I never heard her say, or do, anything disrespectful to anyone. She was, as anybody whoever came across her knows, true blue.
“Like so many moms who struggled, overcame odds, made something from nothing and pulled off the impossible for their children, she never complained. She did what needed to be done, most often, with a smile. She made the best of times in the worst of times…”
Alma was featured in the family’s A&E series Wahlburgers.
She was the mother of nine children, Paul, Arthur, Tracey, Michelle, Jim, Debbie, Robert, Donnie and Mark Wahlberg.
The famous brothers revealed she died on April 18, 2021, at 78 years old.
