Rose Lambert, 88

Rose Lambert, 88, of Hallock Minnesota, entered into the Kingdom of
Heaven on December 11th 2011 at Kittson Memorial Nursing Center of
Hallock.  Rose Randazzo was born on February 15th 1923 to Antonino
and Rosalie Randazzo of Detroit, Michigan.  Rose attended school at
Miller High School in Detroit and worked for Woolworths Clothing
Store until joining the USO during World War 2 where she met Phillip
Lambert.  Phillip and Rose were married on June 8th 1946.  In 1955
Phillip and Rose moved to the family farm in Hazelton Township east
of Hallock, MN, where they raised their family and operated a dairy
farm.  Rose was a hard worker and never complained.   Rose was an
awesome mother of nine children and still found time to participate
in her favorite activities such as Ladies Aid, Home Makers, baking
many loaves of bread every week, and making homemade jelly from
berries she picked in the woods surrounding the farm.  She was known
for crocheting hats, scarfs and blankets for anybody who could use
them and always loved visiting with friends and relatives.  Many
times she would write letters to friends and family in the wee hours
of the night when everyone else was asleep.  Rose also enjoyed
reading the letters she received from her children, grandchildren,
relatives, and friends.  Rose was very proud of her Italian heritage
and often made delicious Italian dishes for her family and friends.
Rose was very strong in her Catholic Faith and was a devoted member
of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church of Hallock.
Rose is survived by her children David (Terry) of Lake Stevens, WA;
Stanley (Lena) of St. Clair Shores, MI; Neil (Kris) of Ham Lake, MN;
