I knew Kathy from working with Mooney’s on my home. It was obvious the moment that I met her that Kathy was not only very efficient at her job but was also a very patient person to answer so my of my questions in such a cheery way! I enjoyed talking with Kathy about kids and animals and I always looked forward to hearing her voice on the phone or seeing her in the office.Sending my thoughts and prayers to her family.

I remember Kathy when she brought Dakota and Connor to the Rec Center on Atlantic to swim. She had a heart of GOLD with a sweet soul. She always spoke a kind word! Rest In Peace Ms. Kathy!

Dear Connor and Dakota, How your mama loved you two. We spoke of many things from side-splitting jokes to heart-wrenching world issues. But, the one subject that gave her joy to the core, was her sons. Later in time, the women they loved and the success she wished for all of you in life. I loved your mom. And, as I knew she prayed for you each day, I will honor her by continuing her prayers for you. May she rest in Eternal Peace and may the Perpetual Light shine upon her.

Kathy had such an easy way about her, She always made you feel comfortable and was probably the nicest person ever.She was all about her boys and it was obvious the love they shared. Remember all if the good times!

I went to elementary school with Kathy and haven’t seen her in many years. It breaks my heart just to know she’s gone (but not forget)! God bless the family.

I know Kathy from working at starbucks. She was a very loyal customer and always made us smile when she came through. Listening to her in the mornings made our days even brighter. We all became very close to her and we will greatly miss her presence, she will forever be part of the starbucks family. We wish our condolences to the family and pray for all of you during this hard time

It is with much sadness that I am writing this about a beautiful kind hearted person you could’ve ever meet. I never heard her say an unkind word about anyone. She loved her two boys than life itself. Working beside her during school functions it was always how much she loved her children and they were her greatest accomplishments in life. Dakota and Conner I am so sad for you both, but it can only be said that you know where she’s resting and that you two were her everything 💙 God Bless her soul and I am praying for you both 🙏

Linda and Alan Camilleri

So very sorry for your loss. Kathy will be truly missed. Thoughts and prayers for all.

Kathy Lynn Lawrence


Kathy Lynn Hargrove Lawrence, age 62 of Fernandina Beach, Florida passed away of Thursday July 29th at Nassau Baptist Hospital.
Born on August 23, 1958 in Nashville, TN to the late Bryce Graves and Rita Hargrove Graves. She grew up in Nashville, TN and graduated from Glencliff Highschool in 1976. After graduation, she worked for Service Merchandise in Nashville for 12 years before transferring to a position with the same company in Florida. She worked at Mooney’s Custom Woodworks for nearly 20 years as the office manager, making friends with anyone who walked through the door.
After moving to Florida, Kathy was married and welcomed 2 children, Dakota and Conner, into the home. Her children will always remember her as a deeply loving mother whose selflessness and generosity shaped every aspect of their lives. She went above and beyond at every possible opportunity to make sure that her boys were supported and provided for. Kathy poured her soul into taking care of other people, endlessly and without rest, and touched so many lives as a result. She will be remembered for her genuine kindness and honest compassion.
Kathy was accomplished at photography and a true lover of all animals big and small, which brought her to work at Hot Paws where she loved on any and every dog that walked through the door. She devoted much of her life to being a generous mother and poured her love and affection into her other two “children”, Gabby and Zeus. Kathy loved to read, filling her house with both books and a large collection of Kindle e-readers. She was an avid movie lover with a particular passion for watching Marvel superhero movies with her boys. She loved the beach, watching for dolphins, collecting shells, and sand dollars. No one can spot a shark’s tooth as quickly and adeptly as she could. Kathy would often wind down after a long day with a glass of diet-Pepsi and would occasionally add a splash a Fireball to it.
She surrounded herself with bright colors and clothes which were reflective of the bright light she brought to the world. She collected angels in art and statue and now she has wings of her own.
Kathy leaves behind her children, Dakota Lawrence (Kaylin) of Nashville, TN, Conner Lawrence (Amanda) of Fernandina Beach, FL; her sister Trina Brown (Tim) of Nashville, TN; her brother Michael (Mona) Graves of Wagner, OK; her cousins who were like sisters Brenda Russel (Bryan) of Smyrna, TN and Terry Castleman (CL); and countless other family and friends who became family over the years.
Visitation and Memorial will be at 11am and 12pm respectively on Wednesday August 4th at Oxley-Heard Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 11 until the hour of the service at Oxley-Heard. Masks will be required. She will be cremated and returned home to Nashville, TN per her last wishes.
Donations preferred in lieu of flowers to Nassau Humane Society to support her love of animals or to Nassau Baptist Hospital, for their great care of her in her final days. Donations for Nassau Humane Society is:
