Obituary for Mary Carolyn Lawson

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 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, preceded her in death. All of whom she loved and touched deeply. We will all cherish every moment we were able to spend with her.
Please join us in celebrating her life Friday, September 27, 2019, 11:00 am at Foothills Community Church, 8270 W. 80th Ave., Arvada, Colo. A reception to follow at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Samaritans Purse or Arvada Food Bank in her loving memory.
