She worked her way up to a bank officer position which she held until her first retirement in 1995. She went back to banking work until her final retirement at age 75 in 2005.

We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Lavonne's passing. She has been an important person in both our lives for a very long time. We loved her positive attitude and down to earth common sense approach to life's ups and downs. It was always a pleasure to spend time with her. We will miss Aunt Lavonne very much. With all our love and sympathy, Harold and Kathie
