Judith B Lamb

October 4, 1938 — April 26, 2022

The world lost a beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and devoted wife, Judith Blackmon Lamb on April 26. Judy died peacefully at her daughter’s home surrounded by her favorite Alan Jackson “good old gospel music” and with her daughter by her side. She gallantly fought the battle of Lewy bodies Parkinson’s for 5 years, no doubt outliving all of the doctors predictions.

 

Judy was born on October 4, 1938 in Tignall, Georgia. She grew up in Augusta, Georgia, and while attending Richmond Academy at the tinder age of 16, she became smitten with a handsome young man named Wyman Lamb. The two fell madly in love and eloped secretly in 1954, giving Wyman his “Beautiful Bride” -- which he would affectionately call her until the day he died.


The young couple then moved to Atlanta while Wyman attended Georgia Tech. Judy worked at C&S Bank and helped support her husband during his Academic studies.

She and Wyman settled in Tucker, Georgia, after he graduated college. They quickly started a family having three children: Mark, Tracie and Todd, all about two years apart. Judy embraced being a mother wholeheartedly, making her children and husband her sole priority in life. She was very active at Ildewood Elementary and rose to be the president of the PTA and in the local republican party reaching the role of Area Pole Manager during election years.


Judy lived a life totally devoted to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and lived a beautiful love story with her best friend, Wyman.  I truly believe that they were as much in love at the end of their life as in the beginning showing the true testament of their eternal love.

 

Judy and Wyman loved to travel, whether it be with Georgia Tech football and basketball teams where they had the honor and luxury of traveling on the team airplane and buses right alongside the athletes, or to the annual State Bar or Sheriffs conventions or frequent Las Vegas gambling getaways with their daughter or on special vacations with their grand children, Amy and Stephen, to Florida, Washington, DC, the Grand Canyon and annual visits to all the Disney parks as well as many cruises with her grand children as they became teenagers.


As well as being a devoted mother and wife, Judy was also a sweet sassy southern lady with a quick wit who loved jewelry and clothes and was always dressed to the “nines”! After moving two doors down from the entrance of Smokerise Country Club, she enjoyed socializing at the country club where they had their special table # 12 always reserved for them, playing Bunko with the gals and forged many special friendships with fellow country club members.


In their latter years, they shared the passion to explore the world and began doing so by way of Oceana Cruiseline.  They developed a bucket list of places they wanted to explore and enjoyed vacationing in such places as Alaska, New Zealand, Australia, Galapagos islands, Easter island, Egypt, Greece, crossing the equator, seeing pink dolphins on the Nile, and lastly on many occasions visiting their favorite vacation spot The Amalfi coast in Italy.


Judy is predeceased by the love of her life, best friend, and her devoted husband of 68 years, Wyman, her eldest son, Mark, her beloved brother Terry and her parents Julia Blackmon and Druid Jackson Blackmon and is survived by her daughter and best friend till the end, Tracie Lynn Lamb (Rhonda Britt), her son, Wyman Todd (Mary Anne) Lamb, her daughter-in-law Robin Lamb, and grandchildren Amy Lamb and Stephen (Madison) Lamb  and her great grandchildren, Samson and Annaleigh Lamb, as well as her niece and nephew, Marrianne (Michael) Jones and David (Susan) Blackmon and their children and grandchildren and her nieces Julie (Don) Pinkham and Natalie Lamb and brother-in-law, William Frank Lamb.


Friends are invited to say a final goodbye to Judy at A.S. Turner & Sons Funeral Home in Decatur Georgia on April 29 from 6 to 8 PM. The family will have a private memorial at her son’s home on Lake  Oconee per Judy’s Wishes.
