Margaret (Margie) Lamb January 29, 1930- August 3, 2020
Margaret (Margie) Lamb passed away on Monday, August 3, 2020 at the age of 90, in Lincoln City, Oregon.
Margie was born January 29, 1930 in West Virginia to her Greek-immigrant parents, Theophile and Alexandra Nomides. She and her four siblings grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where Margie graduated from Dormont High School in 1949, before moving to Tarpon Springs, Florida. Margie moved with her second husband and three children to Newport in 1972, where she settled down to raise her family. She worked 22 years for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife before retiring. Not one to sit idle for very long, Margie grew bored in retirement and volunteered at the Newport Public Library and worked several more years at Wal-Mart. For the last several years of her life, Margie enjoyed the companionship of others at Lakeview Assisted Living in Lincoln City, Oregon, where she was loved by the staff and treated like family.
Margie had a lively spirit and a wonderful sense of humor. She enjoyed going to Reno or Chinook Winds and playing the penny slot machines. She also loved creating outlandish Halloween costumes, such as Cher, a slot machine, the Statue of Liberty, etc, a hobby which began when she would dress up for Halloween for work to entertain her colleagues, and continued on into retirement. She loved her family whole-heartedly and found much pleasure in watching them grow. She could find the humor in any situation and as an entertainer at heart; she loved to make others smile.
Margie was preceded in death by her second husband, Willie Lamb; her parents, Theophile and Alexandra Nomides; and her siblings, John, Charles, Christopher, and Helen. She is survived by her sister: Freda Murray; her three children: Donna Lamb, Joe (Doris) Lamb, Mike (Tamie) Lamb; her five grandchildren: Brandon (Miranda) Lamb, Genna (Arthur) Peters, Michelle (Caleb) Hanneman, Aidan Lamb, Adara Lamb; and five great-grandchildren: Tayler Lamb, Carson Lamb, Joseph Peters, Alex Peters, and Kara Hanneman; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Margie will be greatly missed by her family and friends and fond memories will be reflected on during this time of grieving. The family would like to host a celebration of life for Margie to be scheduled at a later time. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to your favorite charity in Margie’s name or to the Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation, 8815 Conroy Windermere Rd, Suite 309, Orlando, FL 32835.
