July 13, 1932 - October 2, 2016
Erma June Lamb (84) passed into the loving arms of her Savior October 2, 2016 in Fort Collins, Colorado. She was born July 13, 1932 in Canon City, Fremont County, Colorado. She was the daughter of Maynard H. Claussen and Virginia Frances Feller. After moving with her family to Albany, Oregon, she lost her father to Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1938 when she was but 5 years old. Her mother remarried to Theodore C. Meitzler on January 1, 1941; she used the surname, Meitzler until she wed. Her name was initially spelled Irma, but soon gave way to the more common spelling of Erma. Erma attended Southern Missionary University (now Southern Adventist University) in Collegedale, Tennessee and at the age of 21, she married the love of her life, Duane Eugene (Burnett) Lamb on May 13, 1954. Duane was first in the U.S. Navy, then attended SMU, where he met Erma and later entered the U.S. Army. Trained as a medic, he served 2 tours of Vietnam. Having a husband in the service, meant that the family moved a lot. Over the years they lived in Columbia, South Carolina; Fort Benning, Georgia; North Carolina; San Antonio and El Paso, Texas; Wildflecken, Germany; Schofield Barracks Army Base in Oahu, Hawaii; Albuquerque and Roswell, New Mexico; Payson, Arizona; Moab, Utah as well as Aurora and Loveland, Colorado. Erma graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Colorado Women’s College in Denver, Colorado and spent many years of her life as an elementary school teacher. She will be sorely missed by all of those who knew and loved her. Erma is survived by two brothers, Stephen Kenneth (Judy) and Leland Keith Meitzler (Patty) of Orting, Washington; five children, Royce Dee Lamb (Diane) of Florissant, Colorado; Brenda Lue Drummonds (Randy) of Phoenix, New Mexico; Virginia Grace Waldrop of Roxie, Mississippi; Roberta Jean Lesser (Ronald) of Fort Collins, Colorado and April Gibson (Eric) of North Glen, Colorado; nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.
