Nancy Lawson died in March, but she has recently given three final contributions.
Lawson selected longtime friend Jim Worner to look after her estate when she died. Worner presented a check to the YMCA Monday night for $30,000 from Lawson.
She also made contributions to Federated Church and Habitat for Humanity. The dollar amounts for these donations have not been disclosed at this time.
