Elizabeth, known to her friends as Pat, was born in Frederick, Maryland on June 2, 1929 and grew up on a farm in nearby Buckeystown. She attended and graduated from the University of Virginia nursing school, where she met her husband of 49 years George C. Lamb Jr. Pat was a loving wife and mother of four. She was a great supporter of George's career as he finished law school and worked for United Parcel Service, becoming the company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer in 1980.

Pat was a religious and charitable woman who supported medical research at Duke University, the University of Virginia, and Vanderbilt University, which is home to the Elizabeth B. Lamb center for pediatric research. She was an active volunteer throughout her life, an Elder in her church, and an avid gardener and reader.

Pat was predeceased by her husband George C. Lamb Jr. She is survived by children George Lamb III, William Lamb, Claire Lamb Solly, and Margaret Lamb; grandchildren, twins Elizabeth and Carolyn Lamb, Joseph and Elizabeth Reed Solly, Charlsea, Ellea, and George Lamb IV, and Frank Eldridge. They all love and miss her very much.

Services will be held in Hilton Head, South Carolina at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to a charity of your choice.
