Nancy Lambeth (Brown)
Nancy B. Lambeth, 92, formerly of Mechanicsburg, PA, passed away on Monday May 28, 2018 at the Gardens at Blue Ridge, Harrisburg.
Born on October 24, 1925 in Burlington, VT, she was the daughter of the late Myrle and Irene (White) Brown and she was the widow of Austin Lambeth, who passed away in 2008.
Nancy was raised in Forestdale, Vermont, and in Brooklyn, NY. She was a graduate of Penn Hall Junior College in Chambersburg, PA, and attended the Parsons School of Design. Early in her career she was a window designer and later a buyer for several department stores in New York City. She went on to become a production manager for a newspaper company in Long Island. Nancy loved to work with crafts and, upon returning to Vermont with her family in 1974, started her own company teaching the art of beaded flowers and selling her elaborate designs. She was widely noted for her leadership and organizational skills and became president of every club, organization, or committee with which she was ever involved. Among her leadership roles, she was past president of the Middlebury College Friends of Art, and of Vermont Handcrafters, Inc. Nancy was a member of St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Middlebury, VT, and ran its annual Peasant Market for many years.
Nancy is survived by a daughter, Wendy Meehan and her husband James Wabol, of Colbert, GA; a son, Craig Lambeth and his wife Rosalie, of Camp Hill, PA; a step-daughter, Linnea Stanley, of California; and a grandson, Nicholas Meehan, of Berlin, Germany.
A memorial service for Nancy is being planned for a later date in Vermont. Myers-Harner Funeral & Cremation Services, Camp Hill, PA, has been entrusted with funeral arrangements.
