Gena Lamb

Obituary of Gena Christina Lamb

Sweet, generous, loving Gena C. Lamb passed away July8, 2019 at the age of 101 into the arms of our savior, Jesus Christ. Awaiting her arrival was her dear husband Daniel (Mac) with whom she shared 67 years. They married in Kellogg, Idaho where they eventually added a daughter, Elaine, and son Dan, to their family.


Leaving Kellogg in 1950, they became proprietors of The Bungalow Grocery in Spokane followed by the Royal Scot Motel; eventually moving to Wenatchee where they owned and operated Scotty’s Motel before retiring back to Spokane.


In 1981, they moved to Post Falls where they soon began a long, wonderful and fulfilling membership in the Good Sam Traveling Club.


Throughout her life, she always loved “playing in the dirt” with her robust flowers and vegetables which were always appreciated. She gardened right up to her move into assisted living at age 97.


Adored by family and friends alike, Gena leaves behind daughter Elaine Nodes of Post Falls; son, Dan (Judi) Lamb of Stanwood, WA; 7 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by sisters, Hazel Dedic, Goldie Olsen, and brother, Lowell Smith.


Now she rests in peaceful heavenly bliss eagerly awaiting our reunions.


The family will be forever grateful for the many past and present caregivers who showed her much love and respect over the years.


Private family services will be held at a later date. If you were blessed by knowing Gena, please honor her memory by living as she did……always putting others first.
