[highlight_text] [/highlight_text] Judith “Judy” Ann Lambert, 71, of Waupun, WI, passed away Saturday, May 24, 2014, at her home.


[leftcolumn] Judy was born June 4, 1942, in Green Bay, WI to Raymond and Inez Larsen Metz. Judy grew up in Gillett, WI and has shared many fond memories of her childhood on the farm. She graduated from the Wisconsin School of Cosmetology-Green Bay, in 1961. On January 4, 1964 Judy married Eugene Lambert, Jr. at St John’s Lutheran Church in Gillett, WI. Gene and Judy lived in Stevens Point for three years, after which they spent 47 years in Waupun. In 1979, Judy had mitral valve replacement. One year after her heart surgery she ran a 10k and won the race for her age group (38). She would repeat this victory two more times. She was very active at the Beaver Dam YMCA, rising early in the morning to do her daily lap swim. Judy also loved to walk, bike, crochet, camp, fish, golf and read. Judy enjoyed going to Gulf Shores, AL for 18 years during Spring Break. Upon retirement, Judy and Gene would travel to Gulf Shores for the winter months. She loved it when her family would come to Gulf Shores at Christmas. She also enjoyed the Christmas tradition of making Ebelskiver and making Danish Kringle for her family and friends. Judy and Gene recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with their children and grandchildren. Judy loved spending time with her family and cheering on the grandchildren at their many sporting events. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren; she loved them with all her heart. Judy was a very caring and loving person who was always willing to help others.

Judy is survived by her husband, Eugene (Bud) Lambert, Jr; her son, Scott (Beth) Lambert and their children David and Nick; her daughter, Renee (Mike) Nolan and their children Carver and Peyton; two brothers: Dennis (Patti) Metz and Rodney Metz; two sisters-in-law: Nola Metz and Bonnie Jones; brothers-in-law Gary (Chris) Lambert and Ronald Lambert. Judy has also been blessed with many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, many close friends, and her granddogs, Lulu and Lucy.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Raymond and Inez Metz; father and mother-in-law, Eugene, Sr. and Claudine Lambert; a brother, Rev Randall Metz; and a brother-in-law, Dr. Craig Jones.

    I know you’re in heaven…say “hi” to Pastor Metz (I thank you for talking our congregation into bringing him to Waupun).

    I also want to thank you for being a great role model in our church, and community. You always impressed me with your drive while biking and running for many years – I’m very proud of you.

    Finally…thanks for having a super husband that was quite a solid math and computer teacher…along with having super kids (one I was able to play church hoops with, and lifeguard with the other).

    Rest in peace:

    So many many great memories with Judy. Renee & I in home – sewn swimsuits, camping, bike riding, lunch at the lady bug table, and of course haircuts and permanents! Judy was a great lady.

  3. So sorry to hear of Judys passing…I had the pleasure of meeting her and knowing her over the past 10 years…always always had a hug and words of encouragement for me when I really needed them. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family…

    Gene, I didn’t hear of Judy’s passing till my brother, Tom, in Oconto mentioned it on the phone last night. I was so in hope after the news in January that Judy would finally turn the corner and beat that horrible disease. Please accept my sincere sympathy. Judy was always such a fun person through all our school years in Gillett. So glad you had 50 years together, but that wasn’t nearly enough!

    Losing someone who has become a part of you in countless ways is never easy

    Sometimes with someone?s passing it feels as if we will never look at life the same way

    Or be the same

    It is true…
    I will never be the same

    And yes…
    I will look at life differently because Judy has touched the soul of my life

    I have been blessed to have had such a beautiful opportunity to experience the richness and endearing love of Judy

    I will cradle in my heart the precious love we will always have

    Judy you were my inspiration and my true love

    I will miss you more than I can say

    All my love forever
