Rotterdam – Carol A. Lambert, 77, passed away on Monday, May 6th, 2019 in Sarasota, Florida.
Carol was born in Troy, New York to her parents, the late John Malone and Edna (Reilly) Malone.
A graduate of Catholic Central High School, Carol went on to work in various jobs throughout the Capital District, lastly working as an administrative assistant at the Town of Colonie Police Department until her retirement in 1996, at which time she assumed her role as full-time grandma.
