A man once asked a lump of clay, “What art thou?” The reply was, “I am but a lump of clay, but I was placed beside a rose and caught its’ fragrance.” That’s how Ed Hall describes the way he feels about his wife Sandra “Sandi” Lambe Hall, 53, who departed from this life way too soon, on Tuesday, November 9, 2010.
Funeral services, celebrating Sandi’s life will be held at 11:00 AM, Saturday, November 13, 2010, at Hanes-Lineberry Vanstory Chapel. Burial will follow at Westminster Gardens Cemetery.
Born June 26, 1957, in Greensboro, Sandi was of the Christian faith. She was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the Guilford County School System, working with God’s precious Angels - children with special needs. She did her undergraduate studies at the University on North Carolina at Greensboro and went on to earn her Master’s Degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She had a heart for caring and helping those less fortunate, whether it be in her professional or personal life. Sandi was a selfless individual who served on countless professional committees which focused on childhood development and their wellbeing. Her love and devotion extended to animals also, especially to horses, which she has loved since childhood . She loved nature and the beauty of its creation and adored working around their family farm, especially in the summer months, gardening and showering friends and neighbors with their bounty. She shared her husband’s love and passion for motorcycles and was a long-standing member of the Harley Owners Group. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend, who had an unwavering love and loyalty to all those she held dear. She was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her. She was preceded in death by her father, Ralph Addison Lambe.
Those left to cherish her memory include her husband of 18 years, Edward “Ed” Hall of the home; son, Jamie Hall and his wife Deborah; mother, Russell Bruner Lambe; brother Rusty Lambe and his wife Mita; grandchildren, Cameron and William Hall; mother-in-law, Lib Goodnough; aunt, Christine Swink; several nieces and nephews; and a host of friends and extended family.
