LaVern was a great mother and wife. She believed in the importance of family. The stroke suffered in 1993 drew her family nearer and dearer to her.
She never think herself first, but she loved to help and share with others.
Before the stroke, she enjoyed gardening, crocheting and quilting. She loved to spend time in the mountains. She was the sportswoman in fishing and hunting that she loved to go out. She became active LDS Church and served faithful in the Relief Society, and was the Temple van coordinator for a time. She worked with her husband as the ward financial clerk.
