Jean Beverley "Bev" Lamb
Bev passed away peacefully on Friday January 24, 2020 at MacGregor Personal Care Home with Terry by her side.
Bev is survived by her son Terry Lamb (Sandra), grandson Kevin Lamb, grandson Brent Lamb and great granddaughter Emmy; daughter Susan Lewis (Murray), grandson Adam Lewis (Becky), and great grandsons Holden and Cody, grandson Dale Lewis (Chelsea) and great granddaughter Scotty; and daughter Julie Halfdanson (Russ).
Bev was predeceased by her husband Robert Duncan (Dunc) Lamb, father J. Percival MacKinnon, mother Gladys MacKinnon, sisters Elsie Lynch, Kay Palmer and Joyce McEwen, brothers-in-law Mack Lynch, Vic Palmer and Larry McEwen, and an infant brother Frank.
Bev was born and raised in MacGregor, Manitoba. After high school she attended the University of Manitoba and then married Dunc in 1947. Bev was busy with three children, working in the S. R. Lamb and Son Solo Store with Dunc, curling, 4H, figure skating, golfing, and serving on community committees and boards.
Dunc and Bev sold the store in 1970 and moved to Portage la Prairie where Bev worked at the Portage Library. Bev happily spent time gardening, entertaining, golfing and travelling. Her favourite place was Delta Beach and she was happiest when spending time with family and friends.
After Dunc passed away Bev moved back home to MacGregor, first to the Assisted Living facility and then the MacGregor Personal Care Home.
The family wishes to thank all the staff of the Personal Care Home for providing a very caring and compassionate home, Dr. Finney and Dr. Omichinski for their care and concern, and the staff of the Assisted Living for their kindness and providing such a wonderful residence.
A celebration of life will take place in May which will be announced at a later date with details on the Omega Funeral Home website. A private family burial will also take place in the spring.
