Is lady or lunch lady a proper noun in the following sentence?

The lunch lady told me that I had to pay three dollars.

    I would hyphenate lunch-lady. That is the correct term to indicate which person told you that.

    Okay, so if I hyphenate it will it make it a proper noun?

    No. Lunch lady is a common noun.
