Lavern was such a kind, generous, fun loving person, always on the go. I considered her a part of our family and truly loved her. R.I.P. Lavern. You will be missed. Forever in my heart…

  6. Lavern was my first cousin and of my favorite among many cousins. I will always remember Lavern as being a very active person. She loved playing softball, volleyball and dancing. She was always very friendly and loved to tease. Lavern will be missed.

  7. Our Hearts are broken at the passing of Lavern. So many of you all knew her love of the many trips and countless hours on the dance floors but for my wife, Karen and I, having a kind-hearted, hard working, BEST neighbor a guy could ever ask for, was a true blessing. She always had a hello or a hey Mike! Lavern would always tell short stories to recap her travels and her friends. She talked highly of all of her grandchildren all the time. The entire family is in our thoughts. We will miss Lavern very much. We love you Lavern. Dance with the angels!!!!!!
    Rest in Peace Lavern
