Llewellyn Lawing

October 1, 1942 — February 1, 2024


Llewellyn Lawing, a beloved member of the community, passed away peacefully on February 1, 2024, at the Elizabeth House. Llewellyn was born in Buncombe County on October 1, 1942, to Francis Edwin and Marjorie Huntley Drake.

Llewellyn had a passion for ceramics and dedicated many years to teaching this art form to others. Through her guidance and expertise, she inspired countless individuals to explore their creative talents in the field of ceramics.  Aside from her artistic pursuits, Llewellyn enjoyed traveling to Hawaii and embarking on Christian Bus Tours across America. These experiences allowed her to appreciate the beauty of nature and indulge in her spiritual beliefs. Llewellyn found solace in combining her love for travel with her devotion to her faith.  She was a long-standing member at Lake Hills Church and a x-ray technician for many years.  

On this journey called life, Llewellyn was blessed with a loving family. She was the beloved wife of Ronnie Ray Lawing for an incredible 49 years. Their bond was unbreakable and served as an inspiration to all who knew them.  Llewellyn leaves behind her daughter Tiffany McHone and her husband Frank of Candler, who shared many special memories together as a family. Her twin sister, Elaine Gossett and her husband Johnny of Leicester were not only siblings but also close friends who stood by each other's side through thick and thin.  She also had two brothers, Francis Drake, Jr., of Asheville and Daniel Lee Drake, and his wife, Carolyn, of Tennessee.  Llewellyn's pride and joy were her two grandchildren Taylor and Brandon McHone. She loved them deeply and found immense joy in watching them grow and thrive. Her love for them knew no bounds, and their memories with their grandmother will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of the Elizabeth House, Four Seasons Hospice, and Molena Poplin for their extraordinary care and support of Llewellyn through these five years of her disease.

Graveside services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Candler with Reverend Roy Houston officiating.  The family will gather with friends one hour prior to the graveside service at the Wells Chapel of Faith.  

The care of Mrs. Lawing has been entrusted to Wells Funeral Home of Candler and an online memorial register is available at "Obituaries" at
