Jean R. Lam, a homemaker and volunteer who fought a 13-year battle against breast cancer, died of the disease Saturday at her Dundalk residence. She was 63.
Active in her community, Mrs. Lam was a volunteer for the American Cancer Society and Dundalk public schools, where she supervised lunch periods, social functions and trips.
"She was the mom whose door was always open, with a candy bowl always full, plenty of drinks on a hot summer's day and a warm basement in winter," said Sue Stone, a neighbor.
The former Jean Eisel was born and raised near Patterson Park and attended Patterson High School.
Mrs. Lam enjoyed cooking, reading, bowling and bingo.
Services will be held at 10 a.m. today at Bradley-Ashton Funeral Home, 2134 Willow Spring Road in Dundalk.
She is survived by her husband, Harold Lam, whom she married 1952; a son, Dennis Lam of Cockeysville; three daughters, Linda Stein of Parkton, Jeannie Lam of Dundalk and Laura Lam of Middle River; four brothers, Frank Eisel of North Point, and Nelson Eisel, Leroy Eisel and Joseph Eisel, all of Baltimore; a sister, Helen Glock of Middle River; and four grandchildren.
