PEPPERELL, MA -- Evelyn A. "Nana" Lambert (74) of Pepperell, MA., formerly of Chelmsford, passed away peacefully June 2nd at her home surrounded by her loving family. Evelyn was born August 16, 1938 in Cambridge MA, to Henry Miller and Viola (Gates) Miller. To help support her family, which included nine siblings, she worked at Raytheon starting at a young age. After marrying her husband, Robert, of 58 years, she moved to Chelmsford and began to raise a family. Frequently going on camping trips and other family vacations, Evelyn never lost sight of what mattered most, her family. Over the years, her family has grown to include her husband, three children, seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild; all along, she has attended every important ceremony, concert and sporting event she possibly could.
Evelyn leaves behind a devoted husband Robert, a daughter, Robin Egan of Pepperell, two sons, Robert, Jr. and Suzanne of Townsend, Michael and Paula of Pepperell, seven grandchildren, Jesse Egan, Michelle Egan, Sean Egan, Mitchell Lambert, Colleen Lambert, Darrell Lambert and Brandon Lambert, one great-grandchild, Alex Tuliano, sisters Patricia Anderson of Burlington, Nancy Bruce of Billerica and several nieces and nephews.
For the past thirty years, Evelyn has resided in Pepperell, MA with her husband Robert. She enjoyed many different activities: such as knitting, crocheting, visiting her sisters, going out to lunch and playing card games with her friends, playing the slots at Foxwoods and cruising the Caribbean Islands with her husband. She also loved to shop and visit her former colleagues at JCPenney; whom, along with her close friends, she would like to thank for their continuing support.
Evelyn was a caring person who loved to help others. As a final message to those who knew her, she wished to convey the following words of advice: do unto others as you would have them do unto you, help those in need and practice patience. "I want to be remembered with joy and not sorrow. To all my family, I love you very much. Take care of each other, forever. Love, Mom."
