Julia Nicole Lambert, 26, of West Simsbury, CT, beloved daughter of Wayne and Diane Lambert, passed away peacefully on December 21, 2017 due to complications following heart surgery. Born in Kansas City, MO on Valentine’s Day in 1991, Julia was a very kind and compassionate person who cared for many people and also loved all of God’s creatures great and small. She was working toward a career that would allow her to work daily with animals. Julia had volunteered in the past with nature centers, a cat shelter, and recently had been an equestrian exercise rider. Julia was a 2009 graduate of Simsbury High School. She received her Associate in Science degree in 2012 from Tunxis Community College and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in 2015 from the University of Connecticut. Julia loved to care for her animals, play board and video games with her friends and family, was an ardent Yankees fan, and a whiz at Jeopardy and any kind of animal facts. She loved to learn about old world cultures and history, Japanese culture, and Australia and New Zealand. She was an early reader and was constantly reading a book, taking one with her wherever she went. Julia is survived by her loving parents, her brother, Matthew, maternal grandmother, Lila Boynton Bentley, several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
