Reanna Marie Lambert, 37, of Wolf Point, Mont., went home to be with Jesus and her dearest daughter, Amanda Rose, on Nov. 30, 2013, at the Trinity Hospital in Wolf Point, Mont.
Reanna was born Feb. 27, 1976, in Wolf Point, Mont., to Stephen and Connie Lambert. She was raised in Wolf Point and graduated from Wolf Point High School in 1994.
Growing up, she was very active in sports, playing basketball, volleyball, softball and on the swim team. Reanna loved going to swim meets and softball games with her sister. They got up at 6 a.m. every morning for some type of practice and came home very hungry late in the afternoons.
Reanna also loved to play basketball with her brother; they would spend countless hours playing basketball at Borge Park, often showing up late for dinner. Listerud Street was her playground, from playing Ditch at night to ice skating in the winter time with all the neighborhood kids. Many great life-long friendships were made by her (too many to name but you know who you are).
She was a very kind person and rarely said no to a challenge. She was very competitive and anyone that knew her could attest to that. She also loved to hunt and fish throughout her life, especially with her dad, brother and grandpa.
Reanna also loved music of all types; she was musical and was member of the WPHS Pep Band. She loved spending time playing cards with her friends and family especially during the holidays. Some of her favorite card games were Whist, Hearts, Gin Rummy and Solitaire.
She married Chad Heser in Wolf Point, Mont., in 1998. From this union came Andrew Michael, Kevin David, Logan James and Amanda Rose. Early in their marriage, Chad and Reanna moved to Billings, Mont., but returned home to Wolf Point, Mont., in 2003. Her boys got their love of sports from her, especially basketball. They later divorced.
She was also a very hard worker, among her careers she worked as 911 dispatcher for Roosevelt County, a C.N.A. for Prioricare Staffing Solutions, Montana Health Network and other businesses in Montana and North Dakota.
After meeting Kendall Johnson, she loved working beside him at Nemont Weedbusters and on his farm/ranch. Reanna was always willing to help out wherever she was needed and she kept the team moral up during the long spraying season. She loved going to the ranch and riding Kendall’s four-wheeler and she was also working on her fear of flying with Kendall’s patient nature.
Reanna was the strongest and kindest person wrapped into one little firecracker package. She had wit, humor, compassion, love and loyalty through the good and tough times in her life. Reanna loved to play Words with Friends and dancing to country music. Her favorite thing to say to anyone was “Oh, come on now!”
Reanna is preceded in death by Amanda Rose Heser (daughter), Lorayne Lillian Berger (grandmother), Sarah Davis (great- grandmother), and Joseph and Mazel Petrick (great- grandparents).
She is survived by Andrew, Kevin and Logan Heser, Kendall Johnson (significant other), Connie Lambert and David Booke, Stephen and Cecilia Lambert and Abby Julio (stepsister), Chad and Kris (sister), Spencer, Colton and Nicole Rush (Scobey, Mont.), Ryan Lambert (brother), Dr. Jack and Mardelle (Mitzi) Lambert, Clifford and Cheryl Berger and family (Poplar, Mont.), Joseph Berger (Billings, Mont.), Pierre Berger and family, Carol Berger and family, William and Lori Berger and family, Nick and Barb Beery and family (Seeley Lake, Mont.), David and Maureen Piersak and family (Fort Peck, Mont.), Dennis and Kathy Buckles and family (Cowessess, Saskatchewan), Jay Lambert and family (Chula Vista, Calif.), Virginia LaRoche and family (Billings, Mont.), Elmer and Clarenell Davis (Clinton, Okla.).
