Nola Lawrence Obituary

Nola (Beilke) Lawrence, 61, passed away on Thursday, November 16th after a brave battle with dementia. She was born March 16th, 1962, in Rockford, Illinois, the daughter of Harold and Blanche "Peaches" (Olson) Beilke. She married Robert "Rob" Lawrence in Rockford. When they weren't on the Harleys, they were enjoying local pizza places or listening to hard rock. Nola also had a love of horses, cats, crossword puzzles in the Cinderella bathtub, and the fact that she once rode her horse through downtown Rockford. She was a tough, tenacious woman, and she laughed that everyone knew it.

Survivors include her daughter Michele (Adam) Gutzmer, and grandchildren Owen, Elizabeth, and Natalie; siblings Denise, Russell, Galen. She was predeceased in life by her parents, her husband Rob, close friends Dennis and Cindy, her brother Alan, and her cat, Norman. Special thank you to the staff at ProMedica Hospice and Symphony Northwoods.

Celebration of Life will be at Sam's on Harlem, 1031 Harlem Road in Machesney Park, 1 PM-4 PM on Saturday, December 2nd. If you have jeans and Harley gear or a band shirt, please wear them in her memory, and ride if the weather works for you.
