Sylvia C. (Pennington) Lambert, R.N., 84, of Pelham, New Hampshire, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday October 27, 2020 at her home.

Sylvia was a member of Pelham Baptist Church and later Crossroads Baptist Church. She volunteered in many ways to serve her church family and the community. Her nickname was "the coffee lady" because she was happy to show up early and start the coffee.
