Nellie Mae Lamp La Seur passed away at home on Sunday, July 14, 2013 in Conroe, the site of her birth ninety-one years earlier, one of nine children born to Herbert Lamp and Roxie McAdams Lamp. Nell graduated from Conroe High School in '39, a class which was to tragically lose many members due to the outbreak of WWII. WWII also brought a dashing naval officer to Texas, Harvey Stearns La Seur, whom she married on December 25, 1944 at the Methodist Church in Conroe. Nell and Harv were married for fifty-seven years until Harv's death in 1998; many of those years were spent in the oil fields of Venezuela working for Creole Petroleum Corporation. Later, Nell would reflect back on those Venezuelan years as "the best years of my life". She is survived by her three children, Sandra, Michelle, and Harvey Stearns and his wife Kathleen; two grandsons, Stearns and Christopher, as well as her two siblings, Herbert (Kix) Lamp and his wife Bobbie, and Betty Jo Lamp Wortham and her husband Howard, and their respective families. A member of The Greatest Generation, Nell left behind a host of friends from all walks of life. She was an inspiration to many by the way she lived and her unflagging optimism! Her last message to all was, "I went to bed at forty, and woke up 90. What the heck happened?" You will be sorely missed by all that loved and knew you. In lieu of flowers please send your memorial gift for the care of her handicapped daughter Sandy La Seur at: The Sandra La Seur Benefit Memorial Fund at any Wells Fargo. A Memorial Service will be held on July 27th, at the Metcalf Funeral Home in Conroe, Texas at 1:00 pm. Visitation will begin 1 hour prior to the service at 12:00 PM.
