Joan Toy Lambert passed away on March 7, 2011, surrounded by her beloved family. Joan was born near Minco, on Dec. 27, 1920, to original enrollees Jesse Edward and Mary (Roberts) Jones, and was the eldest of 11 children. She attended East Central State College in Ada and worked for many years at Perkins Timberlake and later at Shirlene’s in Burk. Joan was married on July 4, 1941, to Woodrow A. Lambert, who preceded her in death in 1982. Joan was a long-time member of First Baptist Church, Burkburnett, had taught the Rebekah class and was active in the senior adult ministry. She had lived in Arlington since 2000. She was an energetic worker, an avid card and domino player, liked to travel, and had many loyal friends, but she was most proud of her large family. Undoubtedly her greatest legacy to her family and to all those who knew her was her undying love for and faith in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The family would like to thank the loving kind staff of Community Hospice of Texas for the wonderful care they provided. They afforded her the ability to maintain her dignity in her final days. We would also like to thank Dr. Anwar Khurshid, for his wonderful care and compassionate support of our mother.
Survivors include sons, Jesse (Butch) with wife Charlotte, Thom with wife Judy; daughters Joene Cook with husband Sidney and Joyce Johnson; four sisters; one brother; 12 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; and one great-great granddaughter.
