YARMOUTH — Jeanette Asherman Lamb, 85, died March 25 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s.
She was born on March 13, 1924, in Memphis, Tenn., to Vernon A. and Della (Nabors) White. She attended Memphis State University.
On Oct. 7, 1944, she married Aldon M. Asherman. They were married for 38 years before his unexpected death in 1982.
Together they raised five children, living in several towns throughout New York before settling in Croton-on-Hudson in 1964. While her children were growing up, she worked as an aide at local schools.
She was an active member in the women’s group at St. Phillip’s in the Highlands Episcopal Church. She had a passion for music, singing lead soprano in the church choir and lead soprano in numerous musical productions of the Phillipstown Chorale.
In 1986, she moved to Yarmouth, where she lived for 12 years until she married her longtime friend, Herb Lamb of Wolfeboro, N.H., in 1998. They traveled the world extensively together. Following his death in 2004, she returned to Yarmouth.
She was predeceased by her eldest son, Aldon M. Asherman Jr., while he served in Vietnam in 1966; her first husband, Aldon, in 1982; and second husband, Herb, in 1998.
She is survived by her sister, Mary Frances Slager of Memphis, Tenn.; daughters, Karen Asherman of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Nancy Hullings and her husband Bill of Liverpool, N.Y., Susan MacDougall and her husband Ken of Shamong, N.Y., son David Asherman and his wife Cindy of Yarmouth; grandchildren, Davis and Reed Asherman, Jamie and Colleen Hullings, Brynn and Evan MacDougall; and nieces and nephews.
A memorial service was held last week.
