In loving memory late
Evangelist Missionary Myrtle Lamberis
Celebrating a life of Evangelist Missionary Myrtle Lamberis
My aunt has been a inspiration to myself and others that many souls and lives were saved and blessed. She would counsel many people including myself and family members. I remember her telling me that, "precious memories are forever and ever lasting." Remember she would say to "God be the glory. The glory goes to God." God wanted her now and he has set her free. (John 20th Chapter "Peace be with you"). She would say to her dear sister in christ Evangelist Missionary Thelma Green, "the good fight will never be over, it's never ending."
We as the family love her dearly, she will truly be missed.
Rest in Peace, Claudette Harris
