Inge Lamberg

Obituary of Inge Lynning Lamberg

Inge Lynning Lamberg passed away February 28, 2022, at the age of 91 of age related causes. Inge was born on August 23, 1930, in Tvede, Denmark, to Aage and Katherine Lynning-Hansen Toftemark.  At the age of 17, she immigrated to the United States in 1948, with her family, leaving behind her sweetheart, Haakon. At the time, a reunion with her beloved Haakon seemed impossible because Inge had encountered serious health problems in her new homeland. But it turned out that their love would overcome.  Four years after Inge reached America, Haakon arrived. They were married on September 12, 1952, just two weeks after he reached the States. Their marriage lasted 61 years, and during that time, Inge and Haakon were delighted to adopt Steven and Sonja.
    Inge's greatest joy was serving her family and friends. She was a wonderful hostess and loved inviting people to her home. She was a member of Bethesda Lutheran Church for 70 years, serving in the Rebekah Circle, attending Bible studies and helping tie quilts in the Mission Quilting group. She was active in Danish Brotherhood for many years. Inge left a legacy of beautiful decorative needlework and also knitted over 230 baby blankets for newborns at Peace Health Medical Center. Inge and her husband, Haakon, were world travelers, going to Norway, Denmark, China, Mexico, the Mediterranean and many other destinations. 
    Inge is survived by her brothers, Tony Toftemark (Sharon Medart) and Svend Toftemark (Lois); her children, Steven Lamberg (Kathleen) and Sonja Hilzinger; her grandchildren, David Lamberg (Lynnea), Anne Lamberg-Long (Isaac), Jeffrey Lamberg, Barbara Hilzinger, Christopher Hilzinger (Jeannette), Benjamin Hilzinger and Jacquiline Hilzinger (Patrick), Whitney Hilzinger and Kathryn Hilzinger; great grandchildren, Ava and Wyatt Lamberg, Rhys and Rex Long and Kaylee Hilzinger. Inge is preceded in death by her husband, Haakon, an infant son, Ole Lamberg, and grandson, Joshua Hilzinger. 
    A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 19, at 11 am at Bethesda Lutheran Church in Eugene, Oregon. A private committal service will be held at West Lawn Memorial Park. In Lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Bethesda Lutheran Church for the Inge Lamberg Memorial Fund.
