A Hilton Head Island woman who died tragically in a zip line accident Friday will be remembered for her love of the outdoors, travel and her role as a mother of three.

Lisa Lambe, 55, died Friday after she sustained blunt force trauma injuries on a zip line tour at the Sundance Mountain Resort in Utah.

Lambe was a familiar face to many on Hilton Head as the pharmacist at the CVS on Pope Avenue.

“She was incredibly caring, hardworking, beautiful and loved the life on Hilton Head,” Lambe’s husband Jack Lambe said Monday.

Lisa and Jack Lambe moved to the island’s Port Royal Plantation in 2014 from Lisa’s hometown in Vestal, N.Y., after years of vacations to the area.

The couple hoped to eventually retire to the island together. They were married in 1984 after they met in college in Boston where they had their first date to a Boston Red Sox game.

Lambe was a mother of three children — Andrew Lambe who is teaching English in Taiwan, Erik Lambe, a property manager in Baltimore and Kristen Lambe, who lives in Philadelphia.

The couple was on vacation visiting Lisa Lambe’s brother in Utah when they opted to take the zip line tour at the Sundance Mountain Resort on the first day it was open this year, Jack Lambe said.

The couple was riding the attraction along with seven other family members, when Lisa Lambe failed to reach the bottom and was found injured on the course.

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating exactly what led to her death.

The days of vacation before the tragedy, however, fit with many of Lisa Lambe’s passions in life: family, travel, the outdoors and adventure, Jack Lambe said.

“She just loved to be active and outside,” Lambe said. “She always wanted to try something new.”
