LaVonne worked for Kimberly Clark for 26 years. After retirement she played with the Neenah Community Band and also worked as a volunteer at Theda Clark Hospital for 15 years.

She also enjoyed shopping and playing cards with friends and family. Despite enjoying sheepshead and other card games, she was always up for a game of Old Maid. As you can guess, she always lost…
