FARMINGTON – Laurie E Libby Newall Lambert, 90, died on Nov. 9, 2008, at Pinewood Terrace in Farmington.
She was born in New Vineyard on June 15, 1918, to Roxie (Stewart) and Ralph Bernard Libby.
Her greatest passion in life was her home in West Freeman, mowing the lawns in the summer and plowing her yard in the winter. She loved chocolate, donuts, cakes and cookies. Also lunch at Adams Rib in Strong. Several of us “small” cousins always loved to go to Aunties house. We were always welcome and really good times were had there. Her home there in West Freeman is always a destination for the family to come to while visiting in Maine.

Also her special friends and extended family at Pinewood Terrace. She may have been difficult at times, but she loved you all and really loved living there. It was her home. Special thoughts to her roommate Mary and to Anne Marie who prayed for Laurie’s special angel everyday. Also her special friends, Nan and Delbert Reed, her neighbors for many years.
Predeceased by her parents, and step-father Roy Wiggin, her sister Barbara Stoddard, husbands Robert Newall and James Lambert.
