Nannie Lawler Notice
Nannie Croyeau Lawler (Pat Lawler), "Patsy" as her father called her; born September 30, 1928 to Preston and Ethel Wicks of Calhoun St., Baltimore, MD and married to Norman M. Lawler Jr. (1926 – 1994) died peacefully in her sleep of natural causes in her Broadmead room July 23, 2018. Pat is survived by Ann Marie Lawler, daughter, of Baltimore, MD; Norman M. Lawler III, son; Anne T. Lawler, daughter-in-law, of Big Lake, AK; and Brooks A. Lawler, granddaughter, of Fairbanks, AK. Mom's path through life followed the west Baltimore route via Liberty Hts./Rd. To West Arlington and Forest Park H.S. (1946 grad.). Following a mathematics degree from Wilson College (Chambersburg, PA; 1950 grad.), were jobs with BG&E, the state of MD, and homemaking in Ashburton and Villa Nova. Mom was deeply committed to her family and faith, attending Church of the Transfiguration (West Arlington), St. Timothy's (Catonsville), and St. Bartholomew's (Ten Hills) Episcopal churches where she served as assistant treasurer and member of Daughters of the King. Like her mother, the bible, especially the Book of Proverbs, were guides throughout her life. Church hymns provided great joy, particularly "Onward Christian Soldiers". Scottish bagpipe music continue the family tradition as do Mom's other favorites of Nat King Cole and Patsy Cline. For generations of the Lawler family, Mom was the "Betty Crocker". Breakfasts were always ready early, every work/school day included 3-course bag lunches, and all dinners were family sit-down with homemade desserts (pies & crusts, hot milk sponge cakes, Christmas cookies, apple and rhubarb sauce...) guaranteed! Mom was a traveller, enjoying the journey and visiting with family and friends throughout the eastern and southeast U.S., National parks, Canadian maritimes, Alaska, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. An avid sports fan and supporter of the Orioles and MD Terrapin basketball by attending games through annual ticket plans as long as she could climb the stairs. Her routine of reading The Sunpapers and pleasure that the "Funnies" brought confirmed the most pleasant of personalities. "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." A Funeral service will be scheduled at St. Bartholomew's Church, 4711 Edmonson Ave., Baltimore, MD 21229 between October 1 and the end of this year.
