McFADDEN

DEAN FREDERICK McFADDEN, beloved husband of Cindy McFadden, of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at home, on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at the age of 76 years.

He just celebrated his 52nd wedding anniversary and his wife Cindy was the love of his life. He is the loving father of Deana Montgomery (Cory) of Portland, Oregon and Darren McFadden (Kyla) of Lethbridge; and loving grandfather to Layne and Fisher Montgomery and Cason and Landon McFadden.

Dean was born and raised in Lethbridge and lived his entire life in Lethbridge. Dean was a partner in the family businesses with his brother Barry (Barb) McFadden: Bert and Macs (which his father Mac started), Lethbridge Honda Centre and McFadden Honda, businesses his son Darren and nephew Jon now operate. Dean spent most of his career managing and operating Lethbridge Honda Center from 1965 until his retirement, a business that grew out his life-long love of motorcycles. He was an early member of the Lethbridge Trailblazers Motorcycle Club (now the Lethbridge Motorcycle Club) which promoted many dirt-events including motocross’ and hill climbs. He was an avid rider himself, competing in both cross-country and hill-climbing and winning many championships along the way, and as time went on, enjoyed weekend rides over the Logan’s Pass with his wife, and friends. He enjoyed attending car shows throughout southern Alberta with his Camaro and Corvette and spent many hours tinkering on cars and vintage Honda bikes in his man cave with his good friend Mark. Dean worked hard his whole life and enjoyed his retirement traveling in his Motorhome with his wife and by spending winters at his place in Arizona. He enjoyed attending Lethbridge Hurricanes games and cheered on the Edmonton Oilers an interest he shared with his Son and Grandson. More than anything, he loved his family, whether it was sharing his passion for motorcycles, cars and sports with his grandsons or cheering for his granddaughter on the soccer field.

A private Family Graveside Service will be held at Mountain View Cemetery.

In memory of Dean, donations may be made to the Lethbridge and District Humane Society or the Lethbridge Motorcycle Club.

SCHAMBER

HELEN MARIE SCHAMBER (nee Orosz) passed away peacefully April 21, 2021 at the age of 89, three weeks shy of her 90th birthday in Lethbridge, AB.

Mom will be fondly remembered by Michele (Bernie) Miller, Paul Schamber, Alvin (Sherry) Schamber and Christopher Schamber (Kamal Sekhon) and her grandchildren Cody (Chayna) Miller, Kirstyn Miller, Rory Schamber (Donedin Jackson), Aaron Schamber (Alexa Rooney), and Travis Schamber (Calais Milos).

She was predeceased by her husband Peter Jack Schamber. Helen will be remembered by her remaining sisters Beth McKinley and Emma (Melford) Friedrick as well as sisters-in-law.

Helen grew up in the Hungarian area of 1-17 south of Milk River. She grew up in the old days where she lived on a farm, did a lot of chores, and rode her horse to school. Growing up in the hard times of the ‘30s etched many thrifty means of living into her lifestyle.

She met Peter Schamber while they both worked on the Hummel farm where she helped in the house and with the kids and Peter worked farming and fixing machinery. They were married in 1952 and spent the first years of their marriage in a little house on the Hummel farm where they welcomed Michele, Paul and Alvin.

Peter built a new house in Milk River for Helen and his family. It was here that Christopher was welcomed into the family. Helen lavished love and support on her red-headed children. She was a great cook and a wonderful baker. She loved gardening and was known for her bountiful flowers which she often donated to community weddings. There is a plethora of ribbons from the flowers she collected from her entries into the local Bonzana Day celebrations.

Helen faithfully looked after Peter into his latter years when macular degeneration took away his sight. She delighted in her grandchildren and treasured her great-granddaughters.

Helen did not choose to suffer under the shroud of mental illness, but worked to overcome this disability through generosity.

A private Prayer Service will be held on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 6:00 P.M. with Father Salvador Ahumada officiating.

A private Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at 1:00 P.M. with Father Salvador Ahumada celebrating. Both the Prayer Service and Funeral Mass will be live streamed and may be accessed via Helen’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.

Helen will be laid to rest with her husband Peter in Milk River Cemetery.

In memory of Helen, donations may be made to Spinal Cord Injury Alberta (sci-ab.ca/donate/).

VORNBROCK

It is with great sorrow that the family of LESLIE ROY VORNBROCK announce his passing on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

Leslie is survived by his wife Marion, three sons, three daughters-in-law, five grandchildren and one great-grandson.

He is predeceased by his sons Leslie Jr. and Keith and brother Harold Vornbrock.

As a journeyman carpenter, Les created a legacy of structures all over the local county. LR Vornbrock and Sons was your assurance the project would be perfect.

Les was also a major volunteer of his time to his community of Milk River. He served on the town council from 1980 – 1986. His coaching and refereeing included hockey, basketball and softball teams of all ages.

He was a driving force in the county music program, even though his contributions were more volunteering than his vocals.

He worked diligently as a fundraiser for the Knights of Columbus. He was very proud to be a part of this organization and eventually became a Fourth Degree Knight.

As the oldest son, he was a legend to me and always will be.

His spirit will be greatly missed.
