Marceline Day Lamberth


Marceline Day Lamberth, 87, passed away July 15, 2018, from a courageous battle with cancer at Johnson City Medical Center. She was born November 14, 1930, in Johnson City, the daughter of E.P. and Alma Day.

Marceline was the matriarch of the family and was cherished by all. She answered to many names such as “Marcie, MeMe, Grandmother, Grandma Dynamite, Moo, Meno, and Gruntchkins”. She was a competitive backgammon, scrabble, and card player. She had a personality that was bigger than life and one who enjoyed being the center of attention. She never met a stranger and made everyone around her feel welcome and loved. Her Savior, Jesus Christ, and her family were the center of her life.

She was a member of Midway Baptist Church. If you went to visit her you, would find her sitting in her recliner reading her Bible. Her favorite trips were a Charles Stanley cruise to the Bahamas with her best friend, Edith Street, and a visit to New York City.

She was preceded in death by her parents E.P. and Alma Day as well as her daughter, Becky Garland Osborne, and grandson Michael Lynn Droke. She is survived by her son Michael Garland, Linda Droke and son in law Bud, grandchildren Shannon Jones and husband Wayne, Mark Droke & wife Emily, Emily Campbell & husband Jeremiah. Great grandchildren Morgan Droke, Michael Droke, Hannah Jones, Rachel Jones, Caroline Droke, Ellis Droke, and Elliott Campbell. Brothers Robert “Bob” Day and Jim Day.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, July 17, from 5-7pm at Dillow - Taylor Funeral Home in Jonesborough, TN. Pastor Bill Taylor will preside over the service following visitation at 7pm. Graveside services will be held at 11am on Wednesday, July 18, at Monte Vista Cemetery. Serving as Pallbearers will be Bill White, Johnny Carter, Wayne Jones, Mark Droke, Jeremiah Campbell, Mikey Droke, and Ellis Droke. Honorary Pallbearers are Dustin Osborne and Elliott Campbell.
