Frances Darlington Strode Lamberti (1925–2016)

Today, we lost Frances Darlington Strode Lamberti. She and I always had contact on OUR Birthdays, hers the day before mine, like my Brother and our grandmother.

A week or so ago, she had fallen and broken her hip. She was back for Rehab before she returned home. We later learned that she had other medical issues, so today was “almost” a relief. I am only sorry that I wasn’t able to get to see her one more time.

She was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. She loved San Antonio and her time in England.


This picture was taken in August 1952, San Antonio, Texas.

A couple of years earlier, she is with her two nephews in West Chester, Pennsylvania.


That is in the back yard at her parents home.


In 1953 (same place), “The Lieutenant and her Boy Friends”


And for my Mother, her sister, and Father’s 60th Wedding Anniversary 17 Jul 1999.


Very sad, that I didn’t have a better picture of her, by herself.
