Born August 26, 1971 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, she was the beloved daughter of Jim Lawrence and Harriet Penelope "Penny" Gray Lawrence. The family lived in the Kenosha area for many years, moving to Tennessee in 1985 and settling in Culleoka. She was a 1989 graduate of Culleoka Unit School, continued her education at Columbia State Community College and graduated from Beauty School. She worked as a Hair Stylist in Columbia for 28 years. Many of those years were at Studio 14 where she enjoyed getting to know her clients and loved working alongside one of her best friends, Missy Bolenbaugh. Eventually they joined together at Sam and Company with their close friends Tracey Walters and Meredith Martin.

Jocinda was warm, loving, compassionate and loyal and most of her clients became lifelong friends. She was devoted to her family and loved spending time with her daughters and grandson. Vacationing at the beach with them was her favorite way to relax and have quality time together. She always had an eye for beauty and decorating and knew how to make her house a home. Jocinda will be deeply missed and will always be affectionately remembered by her family and friends. She was a member of Grace Church at Franklin and had attended Restoration Community Church in Spring Hill.
