WESTBROOK — Martha Louise Lambert, 82, of North Yarmouth, formerly of Hampden, died Jan. 15 at Springbrook Nursing Care.

Born Dec. 20, 1929 in Brunswick, she was a daughter of Emma and Harold R. Given. She graduated from Brunswick High School and the University of Maine and was a sixth grade teacher at the Weatherbee School in Hampden for 25 years.

Lambert enjoyed knitting, sewing and wildflowers. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. Her life revolved around her family’s needs and interests, especially water and snow skiing. She enjoyed listening and watching the loons at the family camp on Craig Pond. What she loved most was large family gatherings during the holidays.

She will be remembered for her delicious fudge and fresh strawberry pies.

Her family and friends will remember her as a strong independent spirit who was not a fan of chauvinism.
