Margee Ann (Bonner) Lamb

In Loving Memory of Margee Ann (Bonner) Lamb

With a twinkle in her eye and a heart full of laughter, Margee Ann Lamb bid us farewell on March 27, 2024, at the remarkable age of 97. From her spirited beginnings in Denver, Colorado on May 17, 1926, Margee’s life was a colorful tapestry woven with love, humor, and a dash of eccentricity.

Raised by the ever-charming Maurice and Lesley Bonner, Margee blossomed into a force of nature, armed with a smile and a personality as vibrant as a rainbow. In 1944, she married, Ernest “Al” Lamb, and together, their family grew with the arrival of daughters Carynn “Candy” and Lesley, and Margee threw herself into the role of mom with gusto. Whether it was chauffeuring the girls to dance lessons or juggling the duties of raising daugters, Margee did it all with her signature flair, never missing an opportunity to add a sprinkle of fun to every moment.

Alongside Al, they loved their couple friends and an evening of cards and visiting.  Later she dipped her toes into the world of ceramics. Their home became a gallery of whimsy, filled with pieces that captured the imagination and brought joy to all who beheld them.

After Al’s passing, Margee married Rex Lamb in 1981 and moved to Carrollton, Missouri. Together, they embarked on a wild and wonderful adventure, where she traded city life for the wilds of the countryside and became the proud parents of a menagerie of exotic animals. From emus to wallabies to her favorite, fennec foxes, Margee and Rex’s Feathering Heights was a delight, attracting visitors from far and wide who couldn’t resist the allure of their furry friends.

Following Rex’s passing, Margee traded farm life for city living, embracing the new challenges of her life in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  Armed with her trusty sidekick Chein, she became a regular fixture in the Courcheval neighborhood, charming everyone she met with her infectious laugh and irrepressible spirit.

Margee will be remembered for her humor, her love of dogs, her unique fashion sensibility, and the joy of her family’s events and friends.  

She is preceded in death by; parents; husband, Al Lamb; husband, Rex Lamb; sisters, Dorothy Aldridge and Ruth Clark; son-in-law, Richard Holck and grandson, Erik Holck.  Margee is survived by; daughter, Carynn “Candy” Holck, Blue Springs, Missouri, formally of Denver, Colorado; daughter and son-in-law, Lesley & Dick Loos of Lee’s Summit, Missouri; granddaughter, Cheri Koford; grandsons; Andrew Loos and Skott Holck; granddaughter, Aimee Spicci; step-granddaughters, Lori Maddox and Julie Sanders; great-grandchildren; Kennedy Wilson, Harrison Koford, Sophie Spicci, Isabelle Loos, Jackson Holck, and Ashley Holck; great-great grandchildren; Anderson Koford and Lottie Wilson.  She is also survived by; many step-grandchildren and step great-grandchildren; nieces, nephews, and the spouses of all her family members whom she loved like family.

Though Margee may have left this world, her legacy lives on in the hearts of all who knew her. From her quirky fashion sense, and the many dogs she loved, to her love of meeting new friends, she leaves behind a treasure trove of memories that will keep us smiling for years to come.

While we mourn the loss of a true original, let us also celebrate a life lived to the fullest, a life that reminds us to embrace every moment with joy and laughter. Farewell, dear Margee, may your next adventure be as wild and wonderful as the one you’ve left behind.
