Obituary of Conniedale Lambert
Conniedale “Connie” Mullen was born on July 17, 1935 in Holland, Michigan. She was one of three children born from the union of the late Lewis Mullen and the late Opal (Jacobs) Mullen. Being raised on a farm, Connie, was certainly not immune to hard work, chipping in wherever she was needed. She was a 1953 graduate of Holland High School.
She married the love of her life, Paul Lambert, on January 28, 1967. Connie would be blessed with the birth of seven children. For many years, Connie, cared for the needs of her husband and children as a homemaker. She also took employment as a laborer for Peerless Gear in Clinton for ten years prior to medical retirement.
Connie loved the company of others, spending time with family and friends. She was a member of the Tecumseh Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxillary and the Adrian American Legion. Connie enjoyed the simple things in life appreciating the outdoors and fresh air. She enjoyed watching and feeding the birds and squirrels. She often completed her home with a canine, four-legged companion. In her free time Connie often crocheted beautiful blankets. Many of these became cherished gifts for her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and even a few of her great-great grandchildren. She often challenged her mind by completing crossword puzzles. Later in life she made her home at Rawson Place in Dundee. One of her favorite pastimes here was playing bingo with friends.
