LAWSON, Sharon L. (Anderson) (Age 51) My mother’s brave seven month fight with pancreatic cancer ended at home surrounded by peace and love on April 6, 2013. She was born and raised in Spokane, WA and graduated from Joseph Jantsch High School in 1977. Sharon spent many days as a Certified Nurse’s Aide at Southcrest Convalescent Center and the rest of her long career at Mt. St. Joseph taking care of the Nuns. She had made hundreds of friends over the years at both workplaces and cherished those relationships. Sharon is survived by her heart and soul, her son, Jesse Jay Lawson of Spokane. She is also survived by one brother, Fred Anderson, Spokane and three sisters, Penny Jo Beasley, Spokane, Teri Harler (Gary) of Richmond, VA and WendySue Garber (Kurt) of Spokane. She also had many nieces and nephews in particular one niece, April Larson, to whom she was extremely close to and loved very much and her nephew, Jason Lawson, whom she took care of and loved as a second son. Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd and Betty L. Anderson, her husband Joseph Lawson, who passed away in 1997 and her oldest sister, Bonita Bateman, who passed away in 2010. A special thank you to Charles and Josette Helton for taking loving care of my Mom while she was ill. A very special thank you to Spokane Anarchy Wrestling and its members. My Mom was our biggest fan and we love her very much. Visitation will be at Heritage Funeral Home on Wednesday, April 10 from 10am-5pm and Thursday, April 11 from 8am-12pm. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm on April 11, 2013 at Sunset Chapel (Fairmont Memorial Park) with a graveside service following at 2:30 pm at Fairmont Memorial Park.
