Tala Lamblez

Aug. 10, 2008-Aug. 10, 2008

Heartfelt joy turned to sorrow for Jessica and Zachery Lamblez, with the birth and death of their infant daughter, Tala Rose. Tala Rose Lamblez was born and died on Sunday, Aug. 10, 2008, in St. Mary's Regional Hospital, Detroit Lakes.

In the single hour they were blessed with, Jess and Zach got to hear her cry, look into her big, blue eyes, and hold her in their arms -- those memories will forever last a lifetime in their hearts. Tala was baptized in the Christian faith at St. Mary's shortly after her birth. Although she was only here for a short time, little Tala was loved very much.

Tala is survived by her parents, Zach and Jessica (Haakenson) Lamblez, Mahnomen; two sisters, Breanna Kaul, West Fargo, and Nova Lamblez, Mahnomen; her grandparents, Terry Pulver, Mountain, N.D., Eugene Haakenson, Audubon, Brent (Jill) Lamblez, Dent, Lillian Greene, Dilworth, and Feroll (Kevin) Hamernik, Audubon; her great grandparents, Donald and Inez Doehlor, Perth, N.D.; and her aunts and uncles, Melissa (Dan) Phillips, Argusville, N.D.; Jordan Haakenson, Audubon, Brandell Haakenson, Audubon, Xavier (Jenny) Lamblez, Dilworth, and Vanessa Lamblez, Detroit Lakes.

She was preceded in death by her great grandparents, Charles and Dorothy Greene, Lawrence and Eleanor Lamblez, Arnie and Mabel Haakenson.

Funeral Services were held Friday, Aug. 15, in First Lutheran Church, Mahnomen, with Pastor Kristen Larsen-Schmidt officiating.

Xavier Lamblez and Jordan Haakenson were pallbearers.
