Jessica "Jess" Ruth Lawton 1971-2022
Williamsburg, MA — Jessica "Jess" Ruth Lawton, was taken from us too soon on August 27, 2022, at the age of 51. She leaves behind her beloved husband, Jason T. Camp, who she shared ten years with, her parents, Donald, and Jacqueline (Benedict) Lawton, her children, Nickolas Curtin and Morgan Curtin, and her partner Walt Pfau, her stepdaughters, Catrina, and Kaitlyn Camp, and her stepsons, Jason Camp Jr., his wife Stacy, and their daughter Kairi, Justin Camp, and his wife Peyton.
Jess graduated from Hampshire Regional High School and held many jobs in the healthcare industry. She most recently worked as a Home Health Work and took great pride in caring for Veterans, specifically, her client Jim. When Jess was not working, you could often find her cooking in the kitchen. Crafting meals for those she cared for was one of the ways she showed her love. You could find her cooking Morgan's favorite homemade mac & cheese, Nick's often requested "breakfast for dinner," or Jason's perfectly grilled cheeseburger. Jess loved laying out in the sun and spending time at the beach. Visiting Key West with her sister, Kathy, was one of her fondest memories. Jess was also passionate about animals. She loved horses and was training her dogs, Waylon & Bailey, as support animals. In her life, Jess was seen as a compassionate individual, always willing to lend a helping hand.
She will always be remembered and loved by her sisters Katherine Lawton and partner Mark Hebert, Pamela Parker and husband Rob, her in-laws, Kathy and Michael O'Neill, her many nieces and nephews who knew her as "Auntie Blessy," and several aunts, uncles, cousins, and loving friends.

A celebration of life service will be held Thursday, September 8th, 11 am at Village Hill Cemetery, with a gathering to follow at Brian Turner Memorial Pavilion, 21 Lawton Hill Road Williamsburg.
