Karyn Sue Lawson, 61 years of age, resident of Plattsburgh MO. Born November 1, 1954, passed away October 16, 2015, at Liberty Hospital in hospice care after fighting a heroic battle with lung cancer.
Karyn is survived by her adoring husband, Marvin A. Lawson, her siblings, Micheal Thompson, Skeeter Thompson, Kathy Topi, Kristine Forbes, and Jimmy Thompson and their spouses.
Karyn was the proud mother of 3 children: Shane Rickart, Stacie Brayfield, and John “Bear” Rickart Jr.; step-mother to Tracey Nichols and Mark Lawson; and doting grandmother to all of her grandchildren.
Karyn was proud to be a licensed heavy equipment operator for American Asphalt and Grading Company out of Las Vegas, Nevada, where she was certified and ran several pieces of equipment such as:
- 9520 John Deere and disk
- 623 Water pull
- 966 rubber tire loader
- 777 rock truck and a water truck
Karyn was very passionate about her grandchildren and spent every second she had available to spoiling them and supporting them at all of their various school activities where she was always a class favorite at the school parties and field trips and you could always find her cheering on the grandkids from the bleachers in the various sports they all participated in such as: cheer, soccer, football, baseball, and wrestling
Karyn showed us what strength and courage looked like as she battled round after round with cancer and never gave up, and her strong belief in God and love for her family kept her going.
Gone but not forgotten……R.I.P. Mom
