LAMB, Glynis Ellen Janet

April 24, 1953 – December 28, 2012

The family of Glynis Lamb of Calgary is sorrowed to announce her passing on Friday, December 28, at the Foothills Medical Centre. Cruel cancer has extinguished our guiding light.

Glynis was born in Olds, Alberta and moved to Calgary with her family in 1966 where she attended King Edward Junior High and Western Canada High School. After high school, she earned her CGA designation and had a successful career in the accounting department of Norcen Energy. She retired from Norcen in 1988 to devote her full energies to loving, nurturing and guiding her children and grandchildren. Family meant everything to Glynis.

Glynis is survived by Ed, her loving husband of thirty years; two daughters, Tamara (Bradley) Dingreville and Teresa Sutherland (Wayne Pedersen); four fantastic grandchildren, Kyle, Courtney, David and Samantha. She is also survived by her brother Roger (Donna) Watkin; her niece Sherrie (Frank) Enes; nephew Greg (Anita) Watkin; and by Ed’s two siblings, Edna (Louis) Nord and Murray Lamb. She was predeceased by her father Pim (1979) and mother Joan (2009).

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.) on Friday, January 4, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. Private Family Graveside Service at Queen’s Park Cemetery.

Remember that others are here to listen and offer you help as you need it. The pain does ease but it takes time to feel happy again. May it comfort you to know that she is no longer suffering.

  4. We mourne the loss of Glynis and offer Ed and Glynis’ entire family our deepest condolences. We first came to know Glynis in the mid 1980’s in Jakarta, Indonesia during her and Ed’s assignment there. Glynis’ calm, wise and pragmatic approach to life in a new country was an inspiration to all who were fortunate to know her. She always had a smile on her face and met any challenge with quiet determination. Glynis was a amazing woman and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to have known her. Rest in peace dear Glynis. You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
    John, Risma, Jessica, Stephanie and Jeffrey Henriksen

    God saw her getting tired,
    and a cure was not to be.
    So he put his arm’s around her and he whispered “Come to me”
    A golden heart stopped beating.
    Hard working hand’s now rest.
    God broke our heart’s to prove to us.
    He only take’s the best.
