Theresa M. “Minnie” Lambert, 98, of Manchester died December 31, 2022 after a long period of declining health.
Born in Goffstown on December 22, 1924, she was the daughter of Joseph and Analda (Boudreau) Martin.
She had been employed in the Manchester Millyard as a shoe worker later staying at home to raise her family.
Minnie was the life of the party. She will be remembered for her smile, kindness, sense of humor and that she loved to have fun. At family celebrations, she was the first on the dance floor and loved a good sing along. Many summers were spent with family and friends on Daniels Lake, Newfound Lake and Winnipesaukee at Long Island Bridge Campground. Minnie loved to bowl, and her high triple still holds the record at the King Bowling Lanes in Pinardville. She belonged to a group affectionately dubbed the “BBC” consisting of friends and family who shared the love of bowling, bingo and cards. Minnie was tiny in stature but lived large. To say she enjoyed her time with loved ones would be an understatement.
Family members include her husband of 72 years, Arthur J. Lambert of Manchester; her daughters, Denise T. McManus and husband Bernie of Bethlehem, Irene M. Lambert of Littleton, and Lucille Y. Wolf and husband Greg of Little Compton, RI; her son, Ron A. Lambert and wife Peggy of Auburn; 6 grandchildren: Erik Nielsen, Nicki Leitner, Amy Cole, Melissa Lambert, Angela Belanger, and Sarah Lambert, 5 great-grandchildren: Grace Cole, Annika Leitner, Aubrey Lambert, Jack and Taylor Belanger; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by nine siblings Irene Rivet, Annette Martin, Lillian Martin, Claire Boucher, Fleurette Sarette, George Martin, Henry Martin, Roger Martin and Gabriel Martin.
There are no public calling hours. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Friday, January 13th at 11 am in Sacred Heart Church, So Main St, Manchester. Burial will be in Mt. Calvary Cemetery at a later time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N Michigan Ave 17th Floor, Chicago IL 60601-7633 or https://www.alz.org/get-involved-now/donate
