Mrs. Lamb’s son, John Lamb, provided piano accompaniment to the solo selections “How Great Thou Art” sung by David Ainsworth and “It Is Well” sung by Mrs. Lamb’s granddaughter, Rebecca Lamb.

The congregation joined together in reciting Psalm 23, The Lord’s Prayer and the Song of Simeon and singing “Blessed Assurance,” “The Doxology,” and “I Come to the Garden Alone.” During the service a number of Mrs. Lamb’s family members and friends offered words of remembrance and poetry in her honor. Interment followed the service in the Lamb Family lot at the Hartland Village Cemetery where Rev. Moyer conducted the committal. The service concluded with Mrs. Lamb’s grandniece, Molly Lamb playing “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes. Following the committal services, family and friends gathered in the social hall of the church for a time of fellowship and refreshment.
