Mary Lambert

Mary Lee Lambert, North Manchester, formally living on Big Tippy Lake for 21 years, passed away Feb. 27, 2019 at Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne.

Born in Wabash, on Jan. 17, 1942 to Lowell “Hap” and Mary Kathryn (Coon) Hoover, Mary was one of six kids.
Mary’s heart for people showed through her acts of compassion while she was an LPN at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne for two years and then home healthcare nurse in Pittsburgh, PA. Once returning to Indiana, she was a nurse at Miller’s Merry Manor in Syracuse and Warsaw. Mary’s passion was taking care of her family and friends. She loved to bake and share her creations with everyone. She also found the time to sew, knit, weave, and craft. She was married in Servia, Indiana to Ronald Lambert on October 9, 1965.

Mary is survived by her husband, Ronald Lambert, North Manchester; a daughter Kristina (Jim) Fox, Walden, N.Y.; a son Michael Lambert, Pittsburgh, Pa.; three brothers, Stanley (Bonnie) Hoover, Sebring, Fla., Lowell (Susan) Hoover, Bloomington, and Arden J (Maria Christina) Hoover, Fort Wayne; a sister Lynn Ann Gusick, Lehighton, Pa.; four grandchildren, Jennifer and Joseph Fox, and Ashley and Nathan Lambert; and a great-grandchild, Aubrey Diaz.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a daughter Kathryn Lambert who passed away in 2014, and a brother Donald Hoover.

Visitation will be Friday, March 8, 2019 from 3-6 p.m. at McKee Mortuary, 1401 State Road 114 West, North Manchester. A celebration of life will be held at the conclusion of calling. Burial will be held at Oaklawn Cemetery at a later date.
