Passed peacefully at home in her sleep surrounded by her loving husband and close family members on Sunday, February 5th, 2017 in Brockville. Zilda Lamb, (nee Taylor) of Brockville in her 74th year, Beloved wife of Robert (Bob) Lamb. Beloved sister of Bessie Penney (Morris), Beatrice Taylor (Valen),Rosie Elliott (Ralph), and Glossen Taylor (Bernice).
Zilda was born in and grew up in Raleigh, NL on the northern tip of the Great Northern Penninsula. There she attended Raliegh public and high schools. She worked first in Goose Bay Labrador before transferring with her BELL Canada employer to Toronto in 1971. She met and later married her husband Bob, also a Bell employee, in Islington and then remained in the Mississauga area until they both retired in 1997. In 2005 they moved to Brockville where they have been blessed with forming many great friendships that are so often only found in smaller communities. She found enjoyment in cooking her traditional Newfoundland dishes plus a variety of others as well, specially when shared with others. Among her other fond interests were family, knitting, decorating, shopping, Corvette cruising smaller communities and some amazing vacation trips, small or extended always with Bob at her side.
A big thank you goes out to the amazing staff and doctors of the Garden Street Palliative Care group of Brockville General Hospital for the care recieved while there and the assistance beyond through the CCAC (Community Care Access Center) whom with their affiliates have made such a wonderful difference.
Family and friends may pay their respects at the Barclay Funeral Home, 137 Pearl Street E., Brockville on Friday February 10, 2017 from 7 - 9 p.m. and Saturday February 11, 2017 from 12 noon – 1p.m. The Funeral Service will follow in the Chapel at 1 p.m. In memory of Zilda, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be gratefully acknowledged by the family.
