    "Mrs. Schamber Passed Away Easter Morn" - Dispatch Democrat, Ukiah, California - 10 Apr 1942 - Front Page
    "Funeral Services Will Be Held in Ukiah Wednesday"

    "The joy of Easter was overshadowed in Ukiah by the death of Mrs. Winnifred E. Schamber (Peggy), wife of E.H. Schamber of Ukiah. Mrs. Schamber passed away in San Francisco where the final stand was made against death in an illness that lasted more than a month.

    Sorrow is deep in a community where Mrs. Schamber was known and loved. Mrs. Schamber was born in Vallejo and had made her home in Ukiah a little over four years. During that time she assisted her husband at the Cleland-Schamber Funeral Home and joined in the life of the community with her husband and two young daughters. Young, beautiful, possessed of a spirit exceptionally gentle, loving and kind, her death is a blow beyond understanding and thought to the community of which she was a part.

    Mrs. Schamber is survived by her mother, Mrs. Amy Roberts of Ukiah, her husband, E.H. Schamber, and two daughters, Lois Jean and Ruth Marie. Peggy Roberts and Eugene H. Schamber were united in marriage in Honolulu December 21, 1928. Mrs. Schamber was a member of the Central Union Church of that city.

    An active and interested member in local organizations, Mrs. Schamber graciously and conscientiously served the community through the Auxiliary to Lewis White Post, Ukiah Business and Professional Women's Club, Saturday Afternoon Club, and Cultus Club. She was a member of the Order of Eastern Star, Honolulu Chapter.

    The deepest sympathy of a grief stricken community is extended to the bereaved family."
