Nancy Lawson
1950 - 2021
Nancy (Meadows) Lawson

August 19, 1950 - February 19, 2021

Born on August 19, 1950, in Charleston, West Virginia, to the late Ethel Mae Crowley and Bert Meadows, Nancy was the fourth of ten siblings, one of whom preceded her in death, Cathy Meadows.

Nancy leaves a legacy of love that includes her daughter, Tracy Lawson Bizzarri and husband, Jmmy, and grandsons, Ennio and Luca Bizzarri; five sisters, Janie Griffin, Susan Cowdrey and husband, Tom, Pat Pratt and husband, Don, Vicki Osman, and Mary Osman; three brothers, George Meadows and wife, Carolyn, Steve Meadows and wife, Cherie, and Jimmy Osman; many nieces and nephews, and a host of loving friends who admired her indomitable spirit and positive outlook.

Nancy also held a special place in her heart for her late life partner, Richard Franklin "Frankie" Daniel Jr., and his daughters, Amy Morris and husband, Todd and children, Caroline and Andrew, and Angela Hogge and husband, Tom and children, Alistair, Quincy, and Scarlet.

Nancy was adventurous and traveled the world. She loved Jesus, family, singing, and dancing. She never met a stranger. Nancy had a generous heart and gentle spirit, and a fantastic (and often offbeat) sense of humor. She lived to love and spoil her grandchildren, family, and close friends. Her beautiful smile and blue eyes always lit up the room, and she left a lasting impression on every person fortunate enough to know her.

Nancy was regarded by all who knew her as a superhero, as she spent the last 8 plus years battling Stage IV breast cancer. She didn't let her diagnosis define her, and she continued in faith to find joy, hope, love, and humor in life's many curveballs.

The family wishes to thank the Nortonsville Church of God, the Sentara Martha Jefferson Phillips Cancer Center, and Medi Home Hospice for their loving care and support. The family also extends gratitude to the innumerable family and friends who have encouraged and entertained her most recently, especially the GC Good Girls, Katie and Missy Phillips, and Jennifer Lamm.

Nancy wished to be cremated and to have a celebration of life in warmer weather, ideally when pandemic gathering restrictions are lifted. Details will be publicized when the celebration is scheduled.

Donations can be made in Nancy's memory to the Nortonsville Church of God, Medi Home Hospice (Charlottesville), or a breast cancer research organization of your choice.

You were my roommate from and my best friend growing up in Loudendale,WV . We laughed and clowned around most of our lives . I did not want her to suffer as she was , but, I could not and did not want her to leave me, but, I knew she was ready and God´s hand was extended to hold hers and lead her to the promise land. I hope she is holding our Mom and our families there and wait for the rest of us . I can´t wait to hold your and and wLj with you again. Your loving sister,Pat.
