July 10, 1951 - August 19, 2023

Lawren Marie Stone, 72, of Sisters, passed away on Saturday, August 19, 2023 with her family by her side.

Lawren was born on July 10, 1951, to James and Helen Fife in Long Beach, California. She married Gary in 1976 when they moved to Central Oregon. They lived in Redmond until the early 80s when they moved to Sisters. Gary built their dream home, where they lived and raised their family until her passing.

Lawren loved spending time outside. She loved to garden and go arrowhead and rock hunting any chance she got. She was always up for an adventure and always the first to try something new. She loved music and storytelling. Lawren had a very big sweet tooth that she passed on to most of her grandkids. She loved to spend time with her dogs and Gary on the Oregon Coast as often as they could.

She is survived by her husband, Gary; their children, Jeff Stone, Natasha Stowers, Karma and Jerry Crafton, Simon and Jeanelle Stone, Sara and Cary Nickless; her brother Larry (and Helen) Fife. She is also survived by her 14 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren as well as her nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Helen, and her brother Johnny Fife.

The family will have a celebration of life at a later time.
