Diana Lamb

May 5, 1960 - May 21, 2021

Diana Lamb, age 61, of New Castle, DE, passed away in her home on Friday, May 21, 2021.

Born in Wilmington, DE, on May 5, 1960, she was a daughter of the late Edward Crescenzo and Charlotte Grant. Diana was wildly creative and loved having a good time. She accepted all stray animals and friends that her children brought into her home and welcomed them with open, loving arms. Diana loved her simple routines which included drinking an entire pot of coffee, being an amateur detective while she watched Investigation Discovery, and calling everyone she knew for a daily check-in. Without a doubt, her biggest and proudest accomplishment in life was being the best mother to her two children.

In addition to her parents, Diana was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene Patrick Lamb. She is survived by her children, Patrick W. Lamb and Staci A. Lamb; siblings, Donna Nardo (Chris), Edward Crescenzo, and William Crescenzo; aunt, Eileen Majkowski; and the six stray cats her children brought home.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 5 pm until 7 pm on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 North DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, followed by a celebration of life at 7 pm. Any and all stories about Diana are welcome to be shared. Face coverings will be required for all those in attendance not immunized with the COVID-19 vaccine per the CDC and Governor of Delaware. Entombment will be held privately at Cathedral Cemetery.
