TheSt. Francis High School Community would like to extend our condolences to the Sather and Lawry families on the passing of Barbara Ann Sather '76 Lawry, sister of Donna Sather '72 Miller.
A warrior has fallen. Mrs. Barbara Ann Lawry, of Ottawa, IL, passed away on Thursday, January 14th, 2016 at the age of 57. Barb was born to parents Warren and Grace Sather on June 14th, 1958 in Warrenville, IL. She grew up the youngest of three siblings and graduated from St. Francis High School. She married Robin Lawry April 13, 1996; he was the love of her life. She is survived by three children, eldest Jason Pitstick of Ottawa, IL, Angie Mayo of Arlington, VA, and Brad Lawry of Flagstaff, AZ; and three grandchildren Jackson, Nicolas, and Warren.
Barb’s family requests that in lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name as she put it last year “so what I am asking you, my friends and family is to help me raise money for children’s cancer research.” Donations can be made in her memory by going to www.stbaldricks.org/participants/barblawry
Barb did not want to have a wake or funeral, but a celebration of her life was held at the Shoreline Boat Club in Ottawa, IL on Sunday, Jan. 17.
