Sheila G. (nee McManus) Lamont passed away peacefully in Trumbull, CT at the age of 92 on December 18, 2022.
She was born in the Bronx, NY on October 14, 1930. After her education, she excelled as a private secretary, meeting Thomas F. Lamont, the love of her life, and marrying him on October 24, 1953. Together they raised three daughters, creating a loving home for them, and having many wonderful life adventures. The beaches of Rockaway, NY, Lavallette N.J., Hampton Bays, NY and Bermuda were favorite family destinations, providing much joy and laughter through the years.
Sheila’s creativity was very apparent in her talent for designing and sewing clothing for her family. Upon her return to the workforce, she moved quickly through the sales and administrative ranks at Macy’s Dept. Store in Parkchester, NY. She and Tom were very active in St. Raymond’s Parish in the Bronx for many years, donating countless hours of time and forming life-long friendships.
They enjoyed traveling to far-off places in their retirement years, as well as visiting family throughout New York, Connecticut and Colorado. After their daughters were grown, Tom and Sheila moved from the Bronx to Pelham Manor, NY in the early 1980’s, continuing to be active members of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help community.
