Virginia Rose Lambert
Funeral services for Virginia Rose Lambert, 77, were held Monday, October 9, 2017 at Sartinville Methodist Church in Sartinville at 10:30 a.m. Wilson Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
Virginia Rose Ainsworth Lambert lept into the arms of her Lord and Savior on October 6, 2017. After a battle with cancer for several years, her earthly body was spent, and she has now been healed by the one true Physician.
Virginia was born the youngest of three in Jayess on September 2, 1940. She married her high school sweetheart, Donald Dale Lambert, on July 13, 1958. Don and Virginia were the first couple married in newly-built Sartinville United Methodist Church. They moved to the Jackson area to start their lives together, where she began as a homemaker and loving wife. It was soon after that their family began to grow with the blessing of five children. After the birth of their last son, she began working in the insurance field to serve others.
Her attitude and enthusiasm were contagious. Her smile always brightened the room when she walked in. Even during medical treatments, a good day or bad, she was always beaming and giving love to those who were treating her.
Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, Albert Alban Ainsworth and Julia Mae Holmes Ainsworth; brother, Donis Alban Ainsworth; son, Donald Michael Lambert and granddaughter, Callie Elizabeth McNair.
She leaves behind her devoted and loving husband of 59 years, Donald Dale Lambert; children, Michelle (Stanley) McNair, Carol (Ted) Allgood, Tony Lambert and Sidney (Sherri) Lambert, and nine grandchildren, Courtney (Chad) Evans, Michael McNair, Victoria Allgood, Caleb (Molly) McNair, Shelby (Walker) Lacey, Elyssa Lambert, Chad (Breana Hearn) Allgood, Rachel Lambert and Ethan Lambert. She also has two great-grandchildren, Waylon Evans and Romy Lacey, with a third, Caleb McNair, Jr., on the way. She leaves behind a brother, Billy Joe Ainsworth, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and countless more friends and family.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff of Mississippi Baptist Medical Center for their loving care throughout her treatment.
