SCHOBER, SIEGFRIED EMIL
June 29, 1954-Sept 2, 2009
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Siegfried after a courageous battle with cancer. Siegfried was born in Lahr, Germany and is pre-deceased by his beautiful son Aron John Emil and his beloved Oma Gertrude Schober. He is survived by his devoted wife of almost 25 years Shawn Matthewson and his extraordinary son Liam Jordan Alexander. Siegfried leaves to mourn his father Emil Schober, mother Friedelinde & step-father Egbert Dannmeyer, sisters Anita (Bernd) and Ilona (Gerhard), brother Gerold (Monika), many aunts, uncles and cousins in Germany and his parents-in-law, John and Sherrie Matthewson of Maple Ridge. Siegfried loved his many nieces and nephews, especially Caelen and Brading Matthewson-Davies of Norwich, England.
The family would like to thank their many friends for their support and kindness, the BC Ambulance Service, Dr. Hatlelid, Dr. Kollmannsberger, Dr. McKenzie, and Dr. Little as well as the nursing staff of Ridge Meadows Hospital Palliative Care Unit and the Vancouver site of the BC Cancer Agency.
Siegfried loved the outdoors and strongly believed in protecting the environment. In Siegfried’s memory, please go on a hike, plant a tree or make a donation to the Western Canada Wilderness Committee. Celebration of Life, Sunday, September 6th at 2:00pm in the: MAPLE RIDGE FUNERAL CHAPEL (Osborn’s), 11969 216th Street.
