Mariah Brea Rawson
May 23, 1992 - April 7, 2018
Mariah Brea (Nay) Rawson passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 7, 2018. She was 25, born May 23, 1992 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Keith and Tessa (Bridges) Nay.
Mariah was spontaneous, energetic, and full of life, connecting deeply with those she loved. She was happiest when she was with the people she loved: her husband Jeff Rawson, her mother Tessa (Bridges) Nay whom she called “Momma Bear,” and her Grandmother Ruth Bridges whom she called her best friend. She enjoyed the outdoors, hiking and riding horses. She also enjoyed listening to music and dancing, reading, spending time with her grandmother shopping and splurging on manicures, and going on Starbucks adventures with her sister-in-law Lain Rawson. She also cherished Debbie Beard, Tyler Servis, Kate McNulty, and Ashley Espey. Her servant’s heart led her to volunteer at Traders Point Christian Church and to be a lead server at the Lemon Bar.
She is preceded in death by her father, Keith Nay, her great-grandmother Gigi, and her beloved dog Piper.
Mariah, a 2011 Zionsville Community High School graduate, is survived by her husband Jeff Rawson, mother Tessa (Bridges) Nay, grandparents Scott and Ruth Bridges, aunt and uncle Tina (Bridges) and Daryl Dilts, cousin Logan Dilts, her father & mother-in-law Jim and Margaret (Rawson) Grey, brothers-in-law Zach and Aaron Rawson, and sister-in-law Lain Rawson.
