Mrs. Lambright was born March 25, 1892, at Ada, Ohio, to Mr. and Mrs. James Sanderson. She was married to Rev. S. J. Lambright at Sebring, Ohio, April 12, 1910, and to them were born three children, Wilma, Paul and Helen. Besides the husband and children she is survived by her parents, brothers, Lon, Lewis, Carl and Florn Sanderson, and sisters, Mrs. Lewis Marsh, Mrs. Stanton Barton, Mrs. Emma Courtany and Mrs. George McPhial, all of Sebring.
