    • MARGARET I. LAWHORN
      August 06, 1921 - March 04, 2018

      Margaret I. Lawhorn, 96, passed away on March 4,2018, at her daughter's home in Houghton, Michigan.

      Margaret was born to George and Bertha (Titfey) Coleman on August 6, 1921, in Missouri Valley, Iowa.

      Margaret married Virgil Lawhorn on January 1, 1945, before Virgil went to fight in the Army during WWII. Margaret went to San Luis Obispo, California and worked in a bomber plant while Virgil was overseas. They later moved to DeKalb, Illinois where they built a home and raised their family. Margaret lived there until 2008 when she moved to The Bluffs in Houghton, Michigan to be closer to her daughter. In 2016, Margaret moved in with her daughter and son in law, Bahne.

      Margaret had a strong faith in God and was happiest studying her Bible and serving others. She was also a strong prayer warrior. Margaret was a member of the DeKalb Wesleyan Church. One of her ministries was to young mothers, taking care of their babies so they could attend the worship service. If she ever felt someone needed help, she was there to help them not caring of the sacrifice it might be on her part. She also enjoyed knitting and crocheting and made many afghans and baby blankets.

      Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, and six of her brothers and sisters: Albert, Thomas, Raymond, Lee, Gladys, Evelyn, as well as her granddaughter Meghan (McDonald) Jackson.

      Survivors include her brother Roy (Marjorie) Coleman of Cherry Valley, Illinois, her son Ronald Lawhorn of DeKalb, and daughter Joyce (Bahne) Cornilsen of Houghton, Michigan. She also leaves a grandson Joshua (Dana) McDonald of University Place, Washington, her great grandchildren Jacob, Zoe and Evan as well as many much loved nieces, nephews and good friends.

      The funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Friday, March 9, 2018, at Anderson Funeral Home in DeKalb. Burial will follow at Fairview Park Cemetery in DeKalb.

      Visitation will be from 12:00 p.m. until the time of services, Friday, March 9, at the funeral home.

      In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Margaret I. Lawhorn Memorial Fund, addressed to the Lawhorn Family in care of Anderson Funeral Home, Ltd., P.O. Box 605, 2011 South Fourth Street, DeKalb, IL 60115.
