LaWanda Estelle Lambeth (Ahma), 87, was born on Nov. 14, 1918, and passed away peacefully, surrounded by loving grandchildren on March 3, 2006.
She lived in Michigan, Calif., and Oregon until the passing of her second husband, Lt. Col. William F. Lambeth on April 12, 2003. She then moved to Vancouver, Wash., to live with her grandchildren, Pamela and Roger Spence.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Joseph Chaf; mother, Addie Becker; children, Anne Kirkland, April Martin, and David Chafy.
We want to thank Bill Guynn, John Jamieson, Nicola Kowalscyzk, Lisa Spencer, Trina Verwey, LA Wanda Cramberg, Larry Martin Jr., Jim Mackay, Dana Phernetton, and Deborah Blackwell for surrounding grandma with love as she passed.
