Her obit:

On February 9, 2024, we said goodbye to Maureen Pilato Lamb, a remarkable woman who touched the lives of many with her love and kindness. Maureen passed away in Rochester, New York at the age of 75, surrounded by her family who adored her.

Born to her beloved parents, Samuel and Grace Pilato on August 4, 1948, Maureen grew up in Rochester and attended Bishop Kearney High School, where she was a member of the first graduating class. Maureen went on to Saint Bonaventure University for her undergraduate degree and later pursued her passion for the law at Syracuse Law School, earning a Juris Doctorate.

Maureen's professional accomplishments in the legal field were highly regarded and celebrated throughout her nearly five-decade-long career. Following in her father's footsteps, she became a dedicated and respected attorney. Maureen's expertise and unwavering advocacy for her clients earned her a prominent position as the chairman of the New York State Bar Association's Real Property Section. Her professionalism, diligence, and legacy of excellence left a lasting impact on the legal community.

Beyond her successful career, Maureen found immense joy in her family. She and her beloved husband, Robert "Bob" Lamb, Jr., shared a beautiful journey of over 52 years of marriage. They were both passionate attorneys who supported and celebrated each other's accomplishments. She took great pleasure in sharing stories and updates about her family with her extensive network of friends.

Maureen's warmth and loving spirit extended beyond her immediate family. She effortlessly made friends throughout her life, and her vibrant presence left a lasting impression on everyone she crossed paths with.

While Rochester remained her lifelong home, Maureen and Bob found solace and created lasting memories at their vacation home, Three Bridges, on Wellesley Island in upstate New York. They enjoyed the beauty of the St. Lawrence River, tended to their gardens, and cherished the company of dear friends and family in that tranquil setting.

Maureen is survived by her devoted husband, Bob, and her two sons, Rob and Chris. She was a loving mother-in-law to Meredith (Rob) and Catherine (Chris). Her legacy continues through her treasured grandchildren, whom she adored: Robbie, Maddy and Alex (Rob & Meredith); Bennett and Charlie (Chris & Catherine); brothers: Robert Pilato (Dawn) and Bruce Pilato (Lori); brother-in-law Jamie Lamb (Kathie); her nephews, niece and their spouses.

Maureen's vibrant presence, unwavering love, and indomitable spirit will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

Friends may call Thursday, February 15 from 4-7PM at the funeral chapel (2305 Monroe Ave.). A Funeral Mass will be held Friday, February 16, 9:30AM at St. Louis Church, 64 S Main Street, Pittsford. Interment at White Haven Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Mary Cariola Center Foundation.
