Kelly was born May 21, 1988 in Chatham, the daughter of Mike and Tracy Lambkin. Kelly attended John McGregor secondary school, then followed her dreams obtaining her Culinary Management Diploma in June of 2014.
Kelly will always be remembered for her strong spirit, her kind heart and contagious smile. She had a passion for loving her people, culinary, hunting, jeeping, boating, rollerblading, and doting on her new puppy, Allie. She was a talented chef and loved conjuring up new menus to bestow on friends and family. She was gifted and a gift. Her beautiful, sweet, and playful presence will be dearly missed.
Kelly is survived by her best friend and spouse Matthew Wilson, her parents Mike (April) and Tracy Lambkin, Kenneth and Susan Wilson, her grandfather Matt Peto, her five brothers Mark, Dwayne, and Kevin Lambkin, Michael Wilson, and Justin Cartier, her five sisters Cristal Hart, Dawn Hamilton, Rachel Lambkin, Jennifer (Brad) Schafe, and Shea Lynne Cartier; and her nieces and nephews.
