A funeral mass for Mrs. Dolores Schutte Albro Chambers, 94, will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, November 2, 2015, at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church with Father Bryan Lowe officiating. The family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service at the church. Mrs. Chambers left her life here on earth and entered Eternal Life with Our Lord on Oct 28, 2015. She was born on December 3, 1920 to Joseph and Olympe Schutte in Peetz, Colorado and was married to Vern Howard Albro on October 9, 1939. Together they brought six children into this world. Needless to say she and Vern put their own dreams on the "back burner" and devoted their lives to raising those children, making certain they were given every opportunity possible to develop into responsible adults. After her children were in school she worked in the Transportation and Finance divisions at the Sioux Army Depot in Sidney, Nebraska and later at the Ft. McClellan Army Depot in Anniston after a four year previous stint in Recife, Brazil, where her husband worked with the Civil Service. At 4'8" she was a bright spot in everyone's life. She was an avid volunteer and member of organizations such as the Altar Societies at her various parishes and the Young at Heart Club. She will be remembered for her steadfast faith and for her positive outlook even through major challenges in her life. Mrs. Chambers was preceded in death by her husband, Vern, after a marriage of 52 years. In 1994 she married Victor Chambers who had been her supervisor at the Sioux Army Depot some 40 years earlier. They enjoyed 16 years of marriage before he died in 2010. She was also preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Diana Albro; her oldest child, Robert, and step-daughter Donna Knudson. Left to carry on her beautiful legacy are daughters, Jeannette (Jim) Cantrell, of Kentucky, Caroline (Milt) Eloe, of Nebraska, and Kathryn (Dee) Schaad, of Indiana; sons, Thomas (Sandra) Albro, of Tennessee, and Marcus (Addie) Albreaux, of Alabama; step-children, Charles (Leslie) Chambers, of Washington, Linda (Phil) Dispense, of Colorado, and Stephanie Watts, of Kansas; nine grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by four of her 13 siblings, George and Bernard Schutte, Vivian Raines and Margaret Stewart; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
