Caroline Ellen Graham-Lamberts

February 12, 1982

October 28, 2012

Caroline was born in Las Vegas and earned a degree in biology and a degree in Spanish from University of Nevada Reno and a medical degree from University of Nevada School of Medicine. She recently began a pediatric residency at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Caroline had a loving, radiant personality and she touched the lives of all who knew her. She was a strong patient advocate and dedicated her career to outreach and advocacy in medicine. Caroline enjoyed being with family, traveling, and trying new foods. She loved everyone, especially her dear husband who made such a difference in her life. Caroline was a proud and kind sibling and a caring, sweet daughter.

For over four years, Caroline endured a long and valiantly fought battle with breast cancer; she defied all odds with the love and support of her husband, family, and friends. She was always a positive, caring person even during difficult times and enjoyed every day of life fearlessly and optimistically.

Caroline is survived by her husband, Dr. Remy Lamberts; her parents, Ben and Elana T. Graham; her siblings and their spouses, Turner and Nicole Graham; Luana Graham and Francis Abrao; and Elana L. Graham and Seth Floyd; her nephew, Coyne Graham; her mother-in-law and father in-law, Dr. Karen McDermott and Dr. Eric Lamberts; her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Corinna and Ramiro Rodriguez; her nieces Sasha and Anika Rodriguez who were also her Godchildren; and other loving relatives.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. at Christ Church Episcopal, 2000 Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas, NV.
