Darlina Lawrence, 44 of Lumberton NC, transitioned to be with Jesus on Wednesday, December 22, 2021 at her home.
Born on April 10, 1977 at Phoenix Arizona, she was the daughter of Joe James Lawrence, Sr., and Deloris Jean (Goodman) Lawrence.
She was a loving mother, sister, aunt, cousin, and an inspirational friend to so many lives that she touched. She was a recent graduate from IMBC, with a 4.0 GPA, and receiving her diploma for Medical Office Administrator. She had previously worked as a Cosmetologist, Insurance Agent, and Home Health Care Provider. Following graduation from Baileysville High School in West Virginia, she honorably served her country by enlisting into the United States Army as a 31L1O (Wire System Installer) for a period of 5 years. During that commitment, she completed one foreign tour to Korea. She was a devout Christian with Pentecostal church roots. She loved shopping (therapy) with her daughter, going to the beach, traveling to new places, going to church and fine dining. She also loved being a country girl who knew how to fish, shoot guns, and hang with her brothers. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
