Marjorie (“Midge”) C. Lamb, 98, of Franklin, CT died on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at St. Joseph Living Center, Windham, CT. She was the daughter of Elmer and Dorothy Lord of Lebanon, CT. After graduating from Lyman Memorial High School in 1938, Midge worked in the Hartford County and then New London County offices of the Connecticut Cooperative Extension System. 4-H was a lifelong commitment: Midge was a youth member and then club leader for many years in New London County. She had a long career as a school secretary in Montville, CT. Midge was very engaged in professional and town activities, notably the National Association of School Secretaries and the Historical Society in Franklin where she lived for more than 30 years. She was devoted to her Lee Memorial United Methodist Church community in Norwich, CT.

Midge is survived by many nieces and nephews, including the wonderful group added when she married J. Emmett Lamb in 1980. She was predeceased by her first husband, Floyd Edwin Lowe, in 1959, her second husband, J. Emmett Lamb, in 1988, and her sisters Anne Lamb, Olive Lord, and Janet Osterberg. The family extends heartfelt thanks to Midge's caregivers at St. Joseph Living Center for their compassionate care and for indulging Midge’s love of bingo, hymns, and conversation. A lifelong Methodist, Midge appreciated the Roman Catholic faith of her husband Emmett. Services for Midge will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Potter Funeral Home, 456 Jackson St, Willimantic, CT 06226, with visitation beginning at 2:00pm followed by a memorial service at 3:00pm. In lieu of flowers, Midge's family suggests memorial donations to her church, Lee Memorial United Methodist Church, 294 Washington Street, Norwich, CT 06360.
