- About Us
Patricia A. Lamberson, age 83, of West Grove, PA, formerly of Mars, passed away on Friday evening, March 30, 2018 at Christiana Hospital in Newark, DE, with her loving family at her side.
"Lady” was an indomitable spirit who was extremely passionate about many things, not least of all her children, her siblings, and her spirituality. Her strengths as a single mother through times in history that required unique love and hard work, were a matter of pride to her. While raising five children, she worked at many factory jobs with the same skill and strength as the men she worked alongside. When she finally fell in lifelong love with her husband Robert, she acquired his love of railroads, and had a long career with Amtrak after his passing. Though she lived in several places in the country, she always maintained strong bonds with her roots in the Mars Area. Of the finer things about "Patty" were here strong memories of life growing up, and the homilies passed on by her older relatives and of course her joy of dancing with exuberance along with her family. She danced with abandon and freedom that were always remarked upon. She never forgot and neither will her family.
Born in Downieville, PA on April 15, 1934, she was the daughter of the late William R. and Kathryn McKinney Neel.
