Leah Marie (Roberts) Lawson, 77, of Somerset, left this world for Heaven on August 29th, 2021 at Cumberland Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. She was born on November 16, 1943 to the late Arthur and Alma Roberts and raised on a farm in Faubush, Kentucky. She graduated from Nancy High School. She met the love of her life Rev. Patrick Darrell Lawson and they were married on August 20, 1965. They spent the next 46 years together sharing the love of Christ wherever they went. She enjoyed being with and caring for her husband, children, and grandchildren. She also enjoyed reading, sewing, ceramics, and playing the piano.
She is survived by two sons, Steven & (Donna) Lawson of Beech Grove, Indiana, and Keith & (Connie) Lawson of Somerset, Kentucky; two daughters, Becky & (Charlie) Whitaker and Renee & (Mike) Campbell, both of Somerset; two sisters, Mabel & (Claude) Trimble of Nancy and Diana & (Albert) Godbey of Cincinnati, Ohio; nine grandchildren, Savannah Fischer, Steven Lawson, Cody Casada, Sydney Allen, Emily Tarter, Amber Evans Whitaker, Paige Combs, Lexi Thomsen, Miranda Rockwell, Courtney & Emily Campbell; and twelve great-grandchildren, Anastasia Fischer, Brendon Casada, Leah West, Callie & Noah Tarter, Jordan, Everly, & Cash Combs, Madelyn & Fisher Rockwell, Oliver Lockard, & Ivan Jutz.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Patrick Darrell Lawson; an infant son, Ricky Darrell Lawson; her parents; a brother, Ray Roberts; and a sister, Lena Roberts.
