Velda was born July 20, 1940 in Cheyenne County, KS to parents, Harold and Ona (Beeson) Edmonds. She was raised in Benkelman, NE, relocating to the area when her parents bought a hotel there. Velda was one of three children and graduated from high school in Benkelman, NE with the Class of 1958.

On May 18, 1960, Velda married Clarence Eugene “Gene” Lambert in Marysville, KS. The couple was blessed with four children.

Velda enjoyed spending time with her family, playing cards, knitting and was also an avid Cornhusker Fan.

Velda was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Gene Lambert; and her two brothers, Floyd and Jim Edmonds.
