Verlena Lambert died at her Moscow home on Friday afternoon, April 30,
2010, surrounded by her family. She was 56.

Verlena Mae Lambert was born August 8, 1953, in Dayton, Wash., to Verlon
and Ola Mae Stillwell Locke. She was raised in Milton-Freewater, where she
graduated from high school and Harvey Beauty College.

Verlena married her high school sweetheart Bill Lambert on June 3, 1972,
at Milton-Freewater, Ore. Bill was a Safeway store manager and they were
soon transferred to Lewiston in 1975. They then moved to Moscow in 1979
and made it their permanent home, raising their family and becoming
dedicated members of the community.

Verlena worked at Job Services for several years during the 1980's. She
was an accomplished tole painter and enjoyed crafts through the years.
Verlena opened her heart and home to many people. She was a devoted mother
that carried over her motherly love and advice to other "kids". Her family
was always her primary focus, and she will be remembered for over-the-top
holiday celebrations and decorations.

Surviving are her husband, Bill at their Moscow home, and her children,
Chad and Rachel Lambert, and Travis and Jennifer Lambert, all of Moscow.
She is also survived by her precious grandchildren Brice, Taylor, and
Alexa Lambert. Also surviving are her mother, Ola Mae Locke and her
brothers, Tony Locke of Milton-Freewater and Sam Locke of Rathdrum, Idaho.
She was preceded in death by her father, Verlon Locke in 1999.

The funeral service will be held Tuesday, May 4 at 1 p.m. at Short's
Funeral Chapel in Moscow with Rev. Kathy Lee Kramer officiating. A
reception will follow at the Moose Lodge on Main Street.

Graveside service will be held Thursday, May 6 at the Milton-Freewater
Cemetery on Thursday at 11 a.m.


Verlena Mae Lambert



Take care . . .
