Teresa Straley Lambert



Teresa Straley Lambert, a teacher of gifted students for nearly thirty years, discovered upon retiring that her hobbies of photography, travel, and genealogy have turned into a second career. A member of the Ohio Chapter of the Association of Gravestone Studies as well as the national organization, she is now focusing (excuse the pun) on cemeteries and their care, restoration, and preservation, and gravestone symbols and their meanings.

Residing in Findlay, Ohio, with her husband of nearly forty years, Teresa holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and secondary social studies and a master’s degree in gifted education from Bowling Green State University and considers herself to be a lifelong learner. Her other hobbies include reading (her book club recently celebrated thirty years together), bicycling, and herb gardening. She is also a member of the Gaslight Gallery, an artists’ co-op in Findlay, where she shares her love of photography and travel.
