LaVonne Arlene



LaVonne Arlene Erickson passed away on October 28, 2012 at The Haven of Our Lady of Peace after a three month battle with cancer.

Arlene, as she chose to be called, was born on September 4, 1936 in Milton Township, Dodge County Minnesota to Markie and Isabelle Stafford. She graduated from Mantorville High School and then worked at Carlsen's Café in Mantorville, Minnesota. On February 14, 1956, Arlene married Roger Erickson at The Little Brown Church in the Vale in Nashwa, Iowa. She worked as a dental assistant and bookkeeper for Dr. Severance and bookkeeper for Erickson Hardware. When they started their family, Arlene was a devoted stay at home mom for their two boys, Dr. Jay R. Erickson and James J. Erickson. Arlene's calling was helping other people. She touched many lives.

Survivors include her husband, Roger, sons Jay and James, daughters in law Ann and Deborah, grandchildren Gregory, Jacqueline, Rachel, Reed, and Carmen, brothers and sisters Mavis Atkinson, Evelyn Dostal, Donald Stafford, and Claude Stafford.

The family wishes to thank the physicians and staff of Select Specialty Hospital, especially, Amber Northington-Brown and Rosesina Chapman. Our heartfelt thanks also to Dr Eldaway, Dr. Retzloff and the staff of The Haven of Peace, especially Deb McKenzie, Pat Johnson, Schwanna Moorer, Marche Figgins, Kristina Holbrook, and Anamarija Sloan. A special thank you to Christine Henderson for your beautiful hymns.

A private family burial will be held at a later date in Minnesota. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Haven of Peace 1900 Summit Blvd Pensacola FL 32503.

Trahan Family Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
