She was born in Cleveland, TN to Fenton and Elba Oldham Grubb.

A longtime resident of Chattanooga, Mrs. Lawson graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with an Education degree. She taught school for a few years at LFO High School and Cloud Springs Elementary.

She was a member of Brainerd Hills Baptist Church and taught the Ladies of Grace Sunday School Class as long as her health allowed.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Fenton and Elba Grubb; and her husband, Cecil W. Lawson.
