Charles Anthony Lamb, 90; Beverly Jean Barrie Lamb, 87

Beverly and Tony Lamb, who celebrated 63 years of marriage on Feb. 2, died three days apart in Redding, Beverly on Feb. 3 and Tony on Feb. 6.
Beverly Jean Barrie Lamb, the daughter of Alan and Bernice Barrie, was born April 30, 1927, in Los Angeles. She earned a degree in history from the University of California, Berkeley, where she was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and also homecoming queen. Ms. Lamb briefly modeled for the San Francisco department store I. Magnin before moving to the New York area with her family and continuing her career.
Charles Anthony Lamb, “Tony,” was born July 4, 1924, in New York City. The son of Karl and Peggy Lamb, he grew up in Tenafly, N.J., as part of a family deeply involved in the world of art and design. He graduated from the Taft School in 1942 and then attended the University of Virginia, where he joined St. Anthony Hall, the Fraternity of Delta Psi. After a year at UVA, Mr. Lamb enlisted in the U.S. Navy and became a carrier pilot. He was commissioned just prior to V-J Day and ended his naval career as an ensign. He returned to college, this time at Yale, and graduated with a degree in engineering as a member of Yale’s Class of 1945W (for “war time”).
The couple met during a ski weekend in Vermont. They were married in Darien but soon relocated to Pontiac, Mich., where Mr. Lamb began work for the Ford Motor Co. They would later return to Darien when Mr. Lamb began his career in strategic planning and mergers and acquisitions for Olin Matheson. He ended his career as vice president and director of strategic planning for Allied Signal Corp. in Morristown, N.J., where he oversaw the integration of acquired companies.
Mr. and Mrs. Lamb are survived by their daughters, Ashley Lamb Fischer and Susan Condie Lamb, both of Wilton; their son-in-law Keith Stephen Fischer; and their two grandchildren, Charles A. L. Bartlett and Ella C. L. Bartlett. Other survivors include Mr. Lamb’s sister Barea Lamb Seeley and brother-in-law Fred Seeley, and Mrs. Lamb’s brother, Alan A. Barrie Jr., and his wife, Nancy. They were predeceased by a son, Charles Anthony Lamb Jr., who was known as Tony.
A celebration of their lives will be held Saturday, April 4, at 11:30 a.m. in the Chapel at St. Luke’s Church, 1864 Post Road, Darien.
