Sherri "Doodle" LambJanuary 20th, 2021
Sherri "Doodle" Lamb, 51, of Freeburg, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 15, 2021, at Capital Region Medical Center. She was born on October 21, 1969, in Jefferson City, a daughter of Ruth (Fletcher) Bechel and late Robert Bechel. Sherri was united in marriage to the love of her life, Tony Lamb, on January 20, 2012, in Jefferson City, Missouri. Sherri was a 1988 graduate of Jefferson City High School and Linn State Technical College in 1990. In her younger years, she was an active softball player and enjoyed riding horses and causing mischief with her closest friends and siblings. Anyone fortunate enough to know her, will remember her as the loudest laugh and the most infectious smile in any room. Sherri loved those around her to the fullest. Her friendly and generous nature made every person feel like family. She also lived life to the fullest. On any given day, you might find her cruising in her DooBug and soaking up the sun or binge-watching Law & Order: SVU. Sherri loved spending time and making memories with her Aloha Tans family. As a past president of the Garth Brooks fan club, Sherri enjoyed traveling to county fairs watching him perform. Later, she shared those adventures with her daughter, Ashley, making sure to get all the best selfies along the way. If you look closely, you can still see those treasured signatures on her cowboy boots. Sherri is survived by her daughter Ashley and husband Tony; as well as her mother, Ruth Bechel; Dean Lamb (Jenny) and Candi Lamb (Joe); grandchildren, Alexa, Grant, Nolan, Blaise, Korban, Cassie, Payton and Aleigha; 12 siblings, James Crocker (Delores) of Batesville; Billy Crocker (Kim) of Bethany; Larry Crocker (Margie) of Arizona; Linda Crocker of Pasadena; Gail Hannaford (Dave) of Wasola; Mike Crocker (Cathy) of Lohman; Patty Bates (Darrel) of Jefferson City; Brenda Crocker of Topeka; Bobby Crocker of Fulton; Candy McQuiston (Bryan) of Allen; Susan Woods (Dennis) of Pleasant Hill; Betty Shepherd of Pleasant Hill; and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. Sherri was preceded in death by her father; brothers, Ronnie Bechel, Terry Lee Crocker, Randy Crocker; and sister, Tammy Crocker.
