Barbara Sue Harman Lambert
Barbara Sue Harman Lambert went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 in Elkins; she was formerly of Brunswick, Maryland.
She was the oldest child of the late Harry William and Mary Helen Raines Harman and the wife of the late Ronald B. Lambert for 51 years. She was born in her family home in Harman, on May 22, 1940, and died just shy of her 80th birthday.
She graduated as Valedictorian from Harman High School with the class of 1958. She attended Potomac State University until she married. They moved to Brunswick in 1973 where they raised their children. Barbara was a Brownie and Girl Scout Leader and worked as a teacher’s aide at Brunswick Elementary School. She then worked at JC Penney’s and F & M Bank until her retirement. Barbara was a member of the Harman Church of the Brethren and charter member of Faith Baptist Church in Petersville, Maryland. She sang in the choir and enjoyed playing the piano for the Youth Choir. She also collected offerings and did bookkeeping, serving the church meant a lot to her. Most of all she loved being with her family and friends.
She is survived by her children, Ronda D. Lambert and husband Ken Henkel of Jefferson, Maryland, David H. Lambert and wife Laurie and Darla L. Schiffhauer and husband Clint of Harpers Ferry; and her grandchildren, Zachary H. Lambert, who is a member of the West Virginia Air National Guard, and fiancee Jamie Jones of Harpers Ferry, Alycia J.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
