October 10, 1965 - August 17, 2021
Ms. Sherry Lynn Lambert Avens was born on October 10, 1965 in Emporia, Virginia to Bill Lambert and the late Anne Lambert. She departed this life on Tuesday August 17, 2021 after her 22 year battle with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). She accepted Jehovah as her Savior and always kept her bible by her side. Ms. Avens was educated in the Greensville County Public Schools and spent most of her life in Richmond, Virginia. Ms. Avens even though she was paralyzed from the neck down she made sure her voice was heard. She fought for what she believed in and wouldn’t let no one tell her any different. Always keeping God and her kids first in her life. What hurt her the most is that she couldn’t be there for her kids and grandchildren as she wanted to due to battling MS. She was so loving and always ready to give that big smile when something made her happy. She loved to eat and would always want something good cooked or brought for her. Even though she was in pain, never once did she want to put that energy onto someone else. Never let you see her crack under pressure, a real fighter. She was so smart, warm-hearted, courageous, brave and a GREAT mom and grandmother. Always putting someone else’s needs before her own and donating to a variety of charities. She loved to play her online games, video chat with her family and read her bible. Ms. Avens leaves to cherish her memory five siblings, Pam Lambert, Tyrone Lambert, James Lambert, Willie Lambert; five kids, Tamerra Riley, Brendena “Junie” Riley, Jalissa Avens, Stephon Avens, Durrell “DJ” Avens; four grandchildren: Jada Terry, Eric Riley, Brianna Riley and Evan Scroggins, and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
