Obituary

Mary Carolyn Lawson, age
85, passed away August 16,
2019. She was born June 27,
1934 in Denver, Colorado
to Wes and Mary Hamilton
and joyfully married
her true love, Richard Lee
Lawson, in October of 1952
who has since preceded her
in death in 1987.

Mary graduated from Lakewood
High School in 1952. She was a devoted
wife and mother and was deeply loved
by her family. She especially enjoyed
her role as Grandma/Poppy/Pa. Mary
was witty and had a contagious sense
of humor. She was humble and kind,
always making people around her feel
appreciated and valued. She loved to
travel, bake pumpkin bread, crochet,
read and hike. She loved sharing "HIS
PLACE" mountain house in Dillon
with friends and family so they could
enjoy the beauty of Colorado. Her generosity
was abundant.

Mary loved God and serving. She was
a missionary in China, volunteered
with Samaritans Purse; cleaning up
after Katrina and feeding the homeless
in Denver. Her life was a living
example of Ephesians 4:32 - "And be
kind and compassionate to
one another, forgiving one
another, just as God also
forgave you in Christ."
Mary will be greatly
missed by her four children
and their spouses,
Sherri and Lennie Moore,
Carol and Wayne Dennis,
Steve and Chrisann Lawson and
Maryann and Eric Peratt; grandchildren,
Heather (Bret), Carrie (Steve),
Beth (Bryan), Jared (Taniel), Brandon
(Charissa), Kaylor (Marie), Tanner,
Cade, Ambria; plus 11 great grandchildren
and her nieces and nephews.
She is also survived by her brother, Bill
(Bonnie) Hamilton and sister, Jeanne
(Bob) Henderson. Her granddaughter,
Bridgett Lawson and grandson, Brad
Moore, proceeded her in death. All of
whom she loved and touched deeply.
We will all cherish every moment we
were able to spend with her.
