September 20, 1939 - December 24, 2014


Jeannette Joyce Lawrence, age 75, of Lummi Nation, passed peacefully on December 24, 2014 in the company of loved ones after a brief illness.

She was born 9/30/1939 in Whatcom County and married William Sturgeon Sr. in 1957. They had 6 children: William Jr, Patrick, Wilford, Kyle, Janine and Janelle. Although they divorced, they remained good friends. She has 16 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

Jeannette worked many years for Lummi Tribe at the Health Center and Children Services, as well as, Silver Reef Casino, before retiring a few years ago.
In her spare time she enjoyed visits from her children’s many grandchildren. She enjoyed reading books, watching her TV shows and trips to the casinos to play the slots.

It was Jeannette’s wishes for no funeral services and to be cremated and have her ashes sprinkled at the beach or the river. The family will honor Jeannette’s wishes at the start of summer 2015.
