Syble Mae Coleman passed away peacefully on Monday, January 1, 2018, at Beacon Place Hospice House in Greensboro, NC, after a long battle with leukemia at the age of 74.
Luke 4:10 says, "For it is written, 'He will command His angels concerning you to guard you carefully." His angels were certainly with Syble throughout her illness and we know that a band of angels surrounded her in her final moments to carry her to Glory.
Born on September 13, 1943, in Mount View, she was the daughter of the late Chalmers Lambert and Renee Thompson Lambert.
Mrs. Coleman loved her family fiercely and she always gave of herself with a free heart. She was the matriarch of her family and she found joy in serving them and had a smile that would brighten any room. She was a homemaker and attended The Church of God in Beaver for many years. She was an avid bowler, loved shopping, cooking and home decorating.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Jesse Lambert.
Those survivors left to cherish her memory include her husband of 47 years, Gerald Elwood "Jerry" Coleman; three children, Gerald "J.R." Coleman and wife, Chera, of Greensboro, NC, Joey Lambert and wife, Monica, of Cool Ridge, and Connie Meador and husband, Rick, of Richmond, Virginia, and a special niece who was more like a daughter, Tina Key, of Nimitz, WV, who provided for her needs while she was in WV; a brother, Frankie Lambert of Shady Spring; three sisters, Donna Lambert Bragg and husband, Ruben, of Bragg, WV, Phyllis Meador and husband, Herb, of Ashland, Kentucky, and Cathie Whittemore of Shady Spring; nine grandchildren, Ashley Chenault, Brandy McKinney, Monica Rozell, Kelsey Meador, Maleah Lambert, Alena Lambert, Tristen Coleman, Ava Coleman, and Clara Lambert; five great grandchildren, Kyndle, Tinsley, Chesney, Hadley and Hunter; several nieces and nephews also survive.
