Mary Ellen Lambert April 5, 1947 - November 17, 2023

Passed peacefully away surrounded by family at St. Patrick’s Mercy Home, St. John’s on Friday, November 17, 2023, Mary Ellen Lambert of Sunnyside, age 76 years.  Predeceased by her husband Raymond; parents Lucy and Anthony Hickey; parents-in-law Noah and Rachel Lambert; brothers Henry, John and Albert; brother-in-law Kevin Lambert.  Left to mourn with very fond and loving memories her children Dino (Darlene), Dion (Christine), Raylene (Bill) and Sheldon (Katie); grandchildren Ryan, Nathan (Abby), Matthew, Caitlin, Hunter and Liam; sisters Frances (Gordon), Mercedes (Larry), Jane Ann (Derek) and Liz (Greg); brother Anthony (Elsie); sisters-in-law Gladys, Ann, Hilda (Dave), Shirley, Christine, Clara, Marilyn and Rosemary (Eric); brother-in-law Sherwin (Valerie); special friend Tilly Benson and a large number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  Resting at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Sunnyside.  Visitation on Monday, November 21, 2023 from 5 – 9 p.m.  Funeral service taking place at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 from St. Andrew’s Anglican Church Sunnyside with interment to follow at the Anglican Cemetery, Sunnyside.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society.  In keeping with her vibrant nature, we the family ask those attending the service to wear bright colors if they are able to, as a tribute to Mary.


To say Mary was one of a kind is an understatement. She leaves behind a legacy of many stories of generosity and humour. Mary was always there with a helping hand or to lift the spirits of a friend. She undoubtedly had a very giving soul. She lived to make others laugh by either embarrassing herself, them or more and once, both.  Anything for a laugh. She was a strong independent woman who loved to share love of life with others. 

Mary loved bright vibrant colours. We like to think they matched her personality. If anyone would like to wear something bright in her honour, we’re sure she would smile upon you. 

After almost 14 years Mary is now reunited with the love of her life, Raymond. They loved their time together at the cabin. They made many memories with friends there. They are now catching up on lost time. 

Funeral service taking place at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 from St. Andrew’s Anglican Church Sunnyside with interment to follow at the Anglican Cemetery, Sunnyside.
