Rebekah Stokes Lamb, a homemaker who had served as an election judge, died of cancer Sunday at her home of the past five years in Rehoboth Beach, Del. She was 78 and previously lived in Roland Park.
Mrs. Lamb formerly worked at Elizabeth Cooney Personnel Agency and Party People, both at the Village of Cross Keys, and at Gundy's, a Roland Park gift shop. She was a Republican election judge for many years at the polling place at Roland Park Middle School.
"She loved conversing with people and telling stories," said her daughter, Caroline MacRae Lamb of Charlottesville, Va. "She was a compassionate, considerate person."
Born Rebekah Neave Stokes in Salisbury, N.C., she was known as Becky and moved to Baltimore at age 14. She was a 1942 graduate of the former Greenwood School in Towson, and attended Sweet Briar College in Virginia before earning a degree in political science from Goucher College.
She was a former communicant and altar guild member at Episcopal Church of the Redeemer.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at All Saints Episcopal Church, 18 Olive Ave., Rehoboth Beach.
In addition to her daughter, she is survived by her husband of half a century, Christopher Lamb; two sons, Christopher Lamb Jr. and James Cotten Lamb, both of Baltimore; and three grandsons.
