Rose Lambres

Nov. 13, 1926 — Feb. 4, 2014

After several humorous attempts to escape her residence, Pat passed away peacefully on Tuesday morning, Feb. 4, 2014, with her children at her side. She was a resident of Diamond Springs, Calif., born in San Francisco, Calif., and was a first-generation Irish American, fourth child of Thomas and Mary Nerney. She was preceded in death by her husband, John (Jack) A. Lambres; sister, Mary Vernon; and brothers, Tom Nerney and Billy Nerney. She is survived by her sister, Kathleen Ryan; brother, Jack Nerney (spouse Kathleen); sister-in-law, Jean Nerney; children, Paul Lambres of Sonoma, Claire Sternlicht (spouse Mark) of San Francisco and Vince Lambres (spouse Connie) of Rescue; and loving grandsons, Reid and Alec Lambres and Ryan Sternlicht. She also loved being “Auntie Tricia” to many nieces and nephews and extended family members.

Pat was raised in the Mission District of San Francisco, graduated Mission High School and attended San Francisco City College. She received her associate’s degree from American River College in Placerville. Jack and Pat co-owned the Hangtown Ski Hut with George and Marge Bessler. She was a teachers’ aide in the Mother Lode School District for more than 20 years. She was a resident of El Dorado County for more than 55 years.

Pat and Jack met on Donner Summit in the late 1940s, where they were later able to carry the Olympic Torch for the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics. Their love and great memories of the Truckee/Donner Summit area continues with their children and grandchildren. “Grandma Rosie” was very proud of her three grandsons and enjoyed watching their ski races and their many accomplishments, both on the slopes and in the classroom.

The family wishes to acknowledge with gratefulness the kindness and compassion given to our mom by Snowline Hospice, Partners in Care and Gold Country Health Center. We also wish to thank her many friends and neighbors who supported and visited with her over the past few years. In lieu of flower, please consider donating in Pat’s name to Snowline Hospice or Partners in Care.

A private family celebration will be held later in this summer at the annual family reunion, where we will share stories and dance to her favorite song, “Celebration,” in her honor.

    Dear Paul, Claire and Mark and Ryan, Vince and Connie and boys, Sunshine and smiles was your mother. She truly was one of the kindest people in the world. I will always remember her smiles and laughter and the occasional belt holding together a shower package! Love to you all. I am thinking of you and glad she is at peace. Joanne Ryan

    I'm better because of her. She was a joy during a tough week. Thanks for all you did for me, Pat.
