Selma Martha Lambert

Selma Martha Lambert, age 95 of Howard Lake, died Saturday, March 24, 2001, at the Howard Lake Good Samaritan Care Center.

Selma was born March 7, 1906, in Albion Township, the daughter of Henry and Mary (Marohn) Lambert. She was the youngest of 10 children.

On April 1, 1906, Selma was baptized into the Christian faith at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Middleville Township, by the Rev. William Meyer; and confirmed in her faith at the same church by the Rev. Albert Streufert May 4, 1919.

Selma graduated from Howard Lake High School and worked for many years as a clerical worker.

She always had time for her family and spent weekends caring for her aging mother after her father's death.

In 1971, Selma retired from her banking job in Minneapolis, and returned to Howard Lake.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Mary Lambert; two brothers, Robert and Edward; and seven sisters: Augusta, Ida, Annie, Tillie, Clara, Adela, and Agnes.

Selma is survived by many nieces and nephews, and a host of relatives and friends.
