Kathleen “Kathy” Gurr Lamb was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, neighbor, and friend. She returned to Our Heavenly Father on December 4, 2023, at the age of 74.
She was born to the late Charles Heber Gurr and Venice Colleen Moore on August 22, 1949, in Cedar City, Utah. She was the oldest of six children having spent her childhood between Parowan and Beaver Utah, graduating from Beaver High School. After high school, Kathy studied at Southern Utah State College, now Southern Utah University, in Cedar City where she met her eternal companion, G. William “Bill” Lamb. Bill and Kathy married in the St. George LDS temple on September 14, 1968. With a love that we all aspire to, she supported Bill with his career that took them to many different cities and states across the United States. Finally, they settled in Centerville, Utah where they have been since 1992. Across these various locations, Kathy raised four children, Nicole, Brandon, Nathan, and Necia.
Kathy took the most joy when helping others. She was known for being loving and compassionate, one who loved her family more than anything and cared for those in need. Along with Bill, she spent five years helping many individuals in the Inner-City Salt Lake City Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Kathy is considered by all as a true, a trusted, and a beloved friend. She was a skilled seamstress creating heirlooms for family members, especially quilts and blankets that many of her grandkids have used since birth. She found great enjoyment serving in many different callings as a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren and watching sports, especially BYU Football.
Kathy is preceded in death by her parents Heber and Colleen Gurr, two brothers, Gregory Gurr who passed away just nine short days before Kathy, and her brother Curtis Heber Gurr. She is survived by her loving husband, G. William Lamb, children Nicole Lamb Robinson (husband, Robert V.) Santa Clara, UT; Brandon W. Lamb, Bountiful, UT; Nathan S. Lamb (wife, Jennise Jensen) Seoul, Korea; and Necia Lamb Kagie (husband, Scott P.) Layton, UT; her siblings Debbie Gurr Petty (husband, Michael K.) Rickie C. Gurr (wife, Tonya Haslem) and Lory M. Gurr (wife, Karla Moss) as well as 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild recently born in August of this year.
