Lorna Mae Johnson was

born on a farm near Doug-

las, ND, on August 27,

1921, to Carl and Olive

Johnson. She graduated

from Douglas High

School. While in school,

Lorna participated in

choir, singing in trios and

as a soloist. Her father

Carl died at a young age,

so her mother and the 5

girls ran the farm.

Lorna married Edward

Sambor at Calvary Chapel

in Minot. They esta-

blished a small farm

between Max and Doug-

las. They attended the

Methodist church in

Douglas, where she met

her lifelong friend, Annie

Semmen. They began to

sing together at many

church and community

events. She also enjoyed

singing with her sisters.

Lorna was a hard work-

er, tending to the cattle,

her huge garden and can-

ning. She was famous for

her caramel rolls and sour

cream raisin pie. She was

the cook at the Max Cafe

for several years, where

she so enjoyed interac-

tions with the customers.

Lorna also loved making

trips to Washington to

visit her sister-in-law,

Lena Sambor.

Lorna is survived by

her children, Connie Sam-

bor, Phyllis Seay, Carsen,

and Kent Sambor; grand-

sons, Mark Sambor and

Tim McLean; 3 great-

grandchildren, Sonya

Stang, Logan and Tyler

McLean; sister, Phyllis

Narum; and many nieces

and nephews.

She was preceded in

death by her husband, Ed-

die, parents, Carl and

Olive Johnson, sisters

Mathelde Conboy, Evelyn

Meronuck, Margaret Scur-

lock and Lila Fannik,

nieces, Betty Anne Scur-

lock and Kathy

Krebsbach, Marjorie Fan-

nik and a nephew, Terry


The greatest desire in

Lorna’s life was that all

her loved ones would

know the Savior and not

miss heaven so we all

would be there for the

Grand Reunion Day.

eyes in this life, we will
