Cheryl Ann Lambert was surrounded by her loving family when she went home to the Lord on May 6th, 2016. The daughter of Raymond and Patricia Marx Lensing, she was born June 24, 1955 in Russellville. When she was a child her family moved from the United States to Canada. She attended Monsignor Paul Dwyer Catholic High school in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, graduating in 1973.
In 1972, she met the love of her life; Robert David Lambert. They wed June 15th, 1974 in a beautiful ceremony attended by family and friends. In 1975, Robert and Cheryl welcomed their first child, David Patrick Lambert into the world. She often referred to David as her sunshine based on the song "You are my Sunshine". On May 2nd, 1980; Robert and Cheryl welcomed their second child, Billie-Ann Teresa Lambert.
She was both a mail carrier and a mail clerk for the United States Postal Service. She was an avid reader, talented gardener and crafter. The greatest gift we all received was having her as "Big Momma."
She loved nothing more than spending time with her family. She would attend any game, meet, event or function with full support and love. She was known as "Big Momma" not for her stature or demeanor but for the size of her heart. She always had time to listen, talk and play no matter how she felt. She was the sweetest of girls and will be missed by many.
She was preceded in death by her father, Raymond Lensing; stepfather, Daniel Kelleher.
She is survived by her husband, Robert Lambert, Russellville; daughter, Billie and her husband, Daniel Bruce, Benton;
Son, David and wife, Robin Lambert, Russellville; 3 grandchildren, Ty Bruce, Dani Lambert, Ashlyn Lambert; mother, Patricia Kelleher, Dardanelle; 3 sisters, Monica Bond, Emporia, KS, Cathy Lensing, Little Rock, Mary Kelleher; 3 brothers, Dennis Kelleher, Illinois, Kevin Kelleher and Mike Kelleher, both of Dover.
