Obituary: Donna Marie Lawrence

Donna Marie Lawrence, 60, loving wife, mother and grandmother of Newton, passed away on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018, in her home after a long struggle with cancer.

Donna was born on Jan. 19, 1957, in Millersburg, Ohio. Donna will be so missed by her many close friends and family. Donna’s faith in her Lord Jesus was so important to her, and it gives us so much comfort that she is finally at peace with her Lord. She especially lived each day for the love of her life, her granddaughter Lillie. Lillie gave such joy to her grandma.

Donna is survived by her husband, Kurt, whom she married in October 1998; son, Bobby (Charity) Jones; and granddaughters, Lillie and Abby; sisters, Darlene (Duane) Wilbur, Patty (Mark) Frazier and Tammy (John) Klaiber; brother, Keith (Dawn) Lang; and several nieces and nephews, all of Ohio. Donna also is survived by three stepsons, Abe, Jon (Karry), Ryun (Annie) and Leia Lawrence (Dan Stucky), all of Kansas, and three step-grandchildren.

Donna was preceded in death by her parents, Arnet and Clara Lang of Ohio.

The family requests all donations be given to Dr. Mattar and caring staff at Cancer Center of Kansas in care of Petersen Funeral Home.

Graveside committal service will be at 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 5, at Greenwood Cemetery in Newton. A memorial service will follow at 2 p.m. at Grace Community Church with Pastors Steve Friesen and Jack Napier presiding.
