Mary Lyle Trice Lambert went home to the Lord on Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013, at the age of 92.
She was born May 24, 1921, in Delos, Caroline County, to George and Bertha Bruce Trice.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Oscar J. Lambert, six brothers and three sisters.
Mary is survived by her son, Morton Lambert of Richmond; her daughter, Peggy Price of Tucson, Ariz.; a sister, Lucille Tompkins of Locust Grove; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A longtime resident of Quantico and Triangle, Mary was a loving and devoted mother and homemaker to her children. She was a faithful member of Triangle Baptist Church, where she taught Sunday school for 25 years. She also conducted Bible classes for female inmates at the Prince William County Jail for a number of years.
Beginning as an administrative assistant, Mary eventually became manager of a large apartment complex in Dumfries. She then went to work for the U.S. Civil Service, starting in photographic services at Marine Corps Base Quantico. She later worked at Ft. Belvoir, first as a supervisory housing officer and later as a management analyst. After her retirement from the civil service, she became a successful real estate agent in Triangle.
She moved to Lake of the Woods, Locust Grove, in 1988. After her relocation to Locust Grove, she worked as a volunteer for Hospice Support Care of Fredericksburg and became a member of Rhoadesville Baptist Church.
Her son and daughter express their deep appreciation to Mary's caregivers and to those individuals who very kindly visited Mary during her period of illness.
