Obituary of Estelle Therese Lambert
Estelle Therese Lambert (Helten)
(November 13, 1931 - June 7, 2020)
Estelle Therese Lambert passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 7, 2020 at the Agape Hospice in Calgary, Alberta at the age of 88.
Left to cherish her memory are her children Anita Helten of Edmonton, Alberta; Susan (Reg) Balfour of Lloydminster, Alberta; Roger Helten of Bakersfield, California; and Judy (Don) White of Calgary, Alberta; her brothers Gilles (Marie) Benoit; Jean (Claire) Benoit; and Marcel (Flo) Benoit.
She will be fondly remembered by all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren including Gabby White; Ashley (Derek) Hirsch and their children Sawyer and Emery Hirsch; Milo (Tatum) White and their child Bryleigh White; Jaret Balfour; Jordan (Meghan) Balfour and their child Zachary; and Charline (Dan) Kukac.
Estelle was predeceased by her first husband Leo Helten, her second husband, Aime Lambert; her siblings Leo (Amy) Benoit, Paul (Therese) Benoit, and Mary (Maurice) Turcotte; and parents Romeo and Marie Benoit.
She also leaves behind an extended family of her second husband Aime, whose children are Donald (Helen) Lambert and family; Clarence (Anita) Lambert and family; Maxine (Brian) Kenworthy and family; and Pearl (Kamal) Hamdon and family.
Estelle will be remembered as an active church person always lending her beautiful voice to the church choirs and other special events. She had a great sense of humor (and sarcasm) to those who knew her well. She was a great cook and baker and you could always hear her singing whether it was in French or English. She loved to dance and enjoyed her many friends and family get-togethers.
Estelle was laid to rest alongside her first husband Leo on Thursday, June 11, 2020 in Camrose Alberta. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, if family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Estelle‘s memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta.
