Carol was born in Lance Creek, on April 19, 1941, and lived there until the family moved to Manville. Life took her to Denver, Colo., where she married and had five children.
Meeker, Colo., is where she met and married the love of her life. She became Mrs. Jack Lambert on Nov. 21, 1981. After years of working in Dinosaur, Colo., at the elementary school as a cook, Carol retired and they moved to Montrose, Colo., where Jack continued in the construction field until he retired in 1997.
In 1997 they moved to Manville to be close to her family and lived on the old homestead, until June 2015, when the Niobrara County flood took their home. They were able to find a home in Lusk, where they settled down.
