Lambert J. Schommer Obituary

Lambert J. Schommer, of Woodstock, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on October 27, 2023 at the age of 89.

He was born in Colby, WI, on July 16, 1934, the son of Lambert J. and Clara (Hoffmann) Schommer. Lambert was a beloved husband, brother, father and grandfather.

After college, Lambert served 2 years active duty in the US Navy. He then worked at Abbott Laboratories for 41 years holding leadership positions in manufacturing and quality. He was known for his intelligence, approachability and listening skills, earning him the respect of all who knew him.

Lambert was an avid gardener, whether it was tending to his roses or vegetable garden. His other great passion was football. Many hours were spent on Saturdays and Sundays with family watching games, especially the Packers as he was an original shareholder.

Once retired, much time was spent helping at the Woodstock Food Pantry, even serving on the Board for several years. He was also very involved in his parish community at St. Mary’s in Woodstock and was a Knight Commander of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, supporting Christians in the Holy Land.  He enjoyed traveling abroad with his bride Joan of 55 years. He was a devoted father and grandfather and rarely missed attending important activities and events. He especially treasured time visiting family out east, vacationing in Door County, and celebrating birthdays and holidays with loved ones.

Lambert will be deeply missed by his wife Joan (Schipp) Schommer; children Peter (Lori) Schommer and Anne-Marie (Michael) Miller; grandchildren Kailby, Klara and Adalyn Schommer and Alexis, Michaela, Adam and Madeleine Miller along with many family and friends.
