Lambert "Bert" Abel
(May 10, 1924 - December 7, 2022)
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Lambert Abel of Camrose, Alberta on December 7, 2022, at the age of 98 years.
Lambert was born on his family’s homestead near Compeer, Alberta, and married Anna in 1959. They raised a family in Saskatchewan before finally settling in Camrose after his retirement.
He remained connected to his farming roots throughout his career as a grain buyer and cattle and farmland owner. Lambert was an outgoing and hard-working man, who was known for his kindness, generosity, sense of humor, and calm temperament.
He was greatly loved, and will be missed by his wife of 63 years, Anna; children Lydia (Leonard), Miriam (Ron), Tim, and Naomi; sister Regina; seven grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was pre-deceased by his parents Wendline and Katherine; children Esther and James; sisters Johanna, Sibbald, Mary, Katie, Rose, and Min; and brothers John, Bill, Joe, and George.
A private family Memorial Service was held.
