2 I The Lovell Chronicle I August 1, 2013 Day of Good Will starts Saturday BY DAVID PECK The third annual Day O f Good Will or- ganized by local churches begins Saturday in Lovell. The clothing giveaway event to as- sist local families will be held on Satur- day, Aug. 3, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as evenings, 6-9 p.m., the following week, Aug. 5-9, at the LDS Gym on Shoshone Avenue in Lovell. Those wishing to help in the effort are asked to gather gently worn clothes and small appliances, books and toys and bring them to the gym Thursday and Fri- day, Aug. 1-2, from noon to 8 p.m. People are asked to not bring televi- sions or other electronics. Committee member Susan Peck em- phasized this week that the ecumenical event is a "community" day of good will involving all churches who wish to par- ticipate, and anyone can help during the sorting this week and on the sale days Sat- urday and next week. "In fact, if you can help fold or sort your donations, it would be greatly appre- ciated," she said. For more information, call Peck at 548-2809. Garden club meeting set for Aug. 8 BY PATTI CARPENTER A new community club for gardeners is being formed and a second meeting has been scheduled for Aug. 8, at 7 p.m., at the Lovell Annex. The meeting is free to gardeners of all ability levels and gardeners from Lovell, Byron and Cowley are invited to attend. The meeting will focus on zucchinis this month, and participants are encouraged to exchange excess produce from their gardens and tasty zucchini recipes. Local gardening expert Gary Emmett will be on hand for an informal question and answer session. Gardeners are encouraged to bring bagged clippings from their gardens for analysis and advice. The meeting is ex- pected to be very informal, yet informative. Emmett said he hopes gardeners will also bring their ideas for topics and speak- ers for future meetings. The idea is to create a support group for gardeners by sharing tips and tricks learned through trial and er- ror and personal research. He said he hopes that some of the more experienced garden- ers in the area will step up to the plate as speakers at future events. Emmett is a highly respected horticul- tural expert, author and gardening colum- nist for the Lovell Chronicle. He recently published a book on seed starting, which is available on Amazon Kindle and plans to publish more books on Kindle in the future. Emmett said he remembers an active gardening group in the area and beauti- ful gardens throughout the town when he grew up in Lovell. He hopes the new club will benefit the community in a similar way. For more information, contact Gary at 272-7270. Charlene Marie Meier Padilla Oct. 25, 1957 - July 25, 2013 Charlene Marie Meier Padilla, a kind, loving and beautiful woman, died in the early morning hours of July 25, 2013. She was born in El- gin, N.D., on Oct. 25, 1957, to Peter and Josephine (Keller) Meier. She was the first born of a set of quadru- plets, which included two sets of identical twin girls. Her identical twin, Arlene Marie, died five days later. Charlene grew up on a farm three miles south of Burt, N.D. She went to school in Matt, N.D., and graduated in 1976.

She met and fell in love with Ross Padilla. She gave birth to the love of her life, Conor M. Padilla, on June 22, 1994. Charlene and Ross were married on Dec. 11, 2006. She loved spend- ing time with Conor. She loved watch- ing television and playing games on her computer, but most of all she loved watch- ing and shopping on QVC, where she found many bar- gains and goodies. She loved purses and jewelry. She also loved the Twilight se- ries. She loved to watch the movies and read the books over and over (Go Team Ed- ward!). Poor Conor endured that with great patience. Charlene was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2010. She did many rounds ofchemo and radiation. She was diagnosed with leuke- mia in May 2012. In Octo- ber 2012, Charlene and her sister Marlene traveled to Aurora, Colo., to the Uni- versity of Colorado Hospi- tal and had a bone marrow/ stem cell transplant. Her loving husband stayed with and cared for her for three months in Aurora, until she was allowed to come home in January, 2013. Unfortu- nately, the transplant didn't work and she was diagnosed again with leukemia on July 8. She fought a long, hard, valiant battle.

Albino was born on March 1, 1932, to Eusebio and Ramona Varela Rodri- gnez. He attended school in Lovell and graduated from Lovell High School. Albino lived in Lovell for the ma- jority of his life until 2011, when he moved to St. Peter with his son Cris to be closer to his family. His first real job was at the Lovell Bowling Alley. Al- bino served in the U.S. Army, and he was a veteran of the Korean War after his honor- able discharge. After his dis- charge from the Army, Albi- no studied diesel mechanics through P & H Diesel of Chi- cago and he worked for sev- eral years for them in Mexico and South America. In 1966, Albino began his career with Burlington Northern Railroad and re- tired in 1996. He was a mem- ber of the Eagles Club in Laurel, Mont., a member of the VFW in Powell and also a member of the Lions Club in Lovell. He volunteered with the Cub Scouts in Billings, the Boy's Boxing sociation in Laurel akid th Lovell Youth Wrestling. He had a passion for wrestling and many people recognized his loud voice and his wonder- ful laugh as he coached and cheered on his sons at wres- tling matches. Albino had a love for classic cars that he has passed on to his children and grandchildren, and he enjoyed restoring them. He had an extensive collection of them over the years, and he enjoyed going to auctions and salvage yards in search of parts. Albino imparted many valuable things into the lives of his children. He taught them to always work hard, to be proud of who they are and to treat others with respect. Each one of Albino's children pos- sesses the same leadership and drive that he had. His children are living examples of the values and character- istics that Albino himself had. His children, grandchil- dren and great-grandchil- dren brought great joy into his life. He made the jour- ney from Wyoming to Min- nesota many times to escort his daughters down the aisle at their weddings, and for the births and special events in his grandchildren's lives. They affectionately called him Papa, and the nickname stuck. Albino was preceded in death by brothers Frank and Sam Rodriguez, father Euse- bio Rodriguez, brother Lyle Franco, mother Ramona Va- rela Rodriguez, son ROy Ro- driguez and sisters Andrea and Marina Rodriguez.
