Othelia loved her church and Sunday School Class, but most of all, her Lord, Jesus Christ. She was a loving and caring lady who lived life to the fullest. She loved to cook, sew, make quilts, cross stitch, and enjoyed all kinds of needlework. She was retired from the U.S. Postal Service after 38 years.

Othelia was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Leon Lawson; parents, Dewey and Rose Jeffers; three brothers; and two sisters. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
