Ruby VanNostrand Lambert Rock
June 28, 1923 – May 20, 2013
Ruby, “Granny”, “Miss Ruby”, “Nookie” went to heaven May 20, 2013. Born in Princess Anne County she was predeceased by her parents William Henry VanNostrand and Maude Mildred VanNostrand; her husband Clauduist Oral Lambert, Sr.; and her second husband Edwin Rock; sisters Ruth Carroll, Elsie Lowery, and Joan Hilley; son-in-law Walter J. Moore; and her beloved grandson Clauduist Oral Lambert, III.
She was a loving and very special “granny” to her family and will be remembered by many simply as Ruby at the grocery store or “Miss Ruby” at the W.T. Cooke Elementary School cafeteria. A devote Christian, she loved people, never met a stranger, freely offered good advice to all who sought it and to others who may not have. Left to remember her and carry on her love for others are her only brother William E. VanNostrand pre-deceased wife Hazel; brother-in-law Floyd V. Lowery; son Clauduist Oral Lambert, Jr and wife Karen; daughter Patsy Lambert Moore; her grandchildren Natalie Gould and husband Dr. Randy Gould; James Dodd; Dr. Lauren Florin and husband Ryan. She leaves six great-grandchildren Lindsay, Clay, Josh, Caleb, Leah and Jenna; and, nieces and nephews Larry, Debra, Robin, Bobby, Lorrie, Marvin, Kenny, Harold, Michael, and Gordon. She was blessed with numerous other great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and extended family members who loved her and remain to remember her.
The family will receive friends at Altmeyer Maestas Funeral Home, 18th Street at Baltic Avenue, Virginia Beach, on Wednesday evening from 6:30P to 8:00P. A graveside service conducted by Pastor Glen Stevens will be held at Nimmo Church Cemetery, Virginia Beach, on Thursday May 23, 2013 at 2:00PM. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad, Station 14.
