Westborough – We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Beth Lambert, a cherished wife, family member, and friend. Beth’s life, marked by love, adventure, and heroic courage in the face of severe illness, came to a peaceful end in her beloved town of Westborough, MA on December 6, 2023.

Beth, the adored wife of Richard Lambert, lived a life full of joy and exploration. She loved visiting the ocean and friends and family on Cape Cod Beth’s adventurous spirit led her to travel extensively, with memorable trips to Hawaii, Disney World, Italy, and England.

Beth was a great walker and a competitive golfer. Her professional dedication and hard work were evident in her 18-year career at Verizon, where she rose to the position of Business Service Representative.

Music played a very significant role in Beth’s life. She studied the violin and was fortunate to receive lessons from Abraham Levinson, the esteemed Conductor of the Worcester Symphony Orchestra. Beth and her mother, Helen, shared a love for concerts and symphonies, often attending performances together and forging a close friendship with Abraham and his wife.

Beth’s talents extended to the golf course, where she was an avid golfer and participated in various tournaments. Her spiritual journey was deeply intertwined with her faith. She was very actively involved in the Catholic Church and found peace and purpose in retreats led by Eileen George.

Beth had a special bond with her father, an army officer and engineer, cherishing memories of visiting him in Alaska.

Beth’s educational pursuits culminated in a degree from Framingham State College, where she studied Education. Her impact on others was profound, and her absence will be deeply felt.

Over the last two decades of her life, Beth confronted increasingly severe health challenges that forced her to use a cane, then a walker, and then a wheelchair and that progressively confined her activities. She bore these trials with extraordinary grace and courage. She was a constant source of love and joy even as her health grew worse. Even after her speech became impaired, her clear statement “I love you!” was always easy to understand. Beth loved her family and friends, and the power, grace, and faith that she brought to each day will always inspire those who loved her in return.

Beth is lovingly remembered by her devoted husband, Richard and by relatives including her aunt Irene Sowa of Arlington Virginia, cousins, Sharon Montalbano, Nancy Fallon, Francis Sowa, Sandra Norris and Ellen Sowa, and Cam Sowa, along with many other cousins. Her life was a testament to love, dedication, courage and faith, and she will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Her funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, December 13, at 11:00 A.M. in St. Luke the Evangelist Church, 70 West Main St., Westborough. Burial will follow in St. Luke’s Cemetery.

Calling hours at Pickering & Son Westborough Funeral Home, 62 West Main St., Westborough, are Tuesday, December 12, from 5 to 7 P.M.
