LaVonge Foley and Dewey Foss were married on March 4, 1944, in Macksville, Kan., a union that endured for 51 years.

LaVonge was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, her brother, Duane Foley, and her sister, JoAnn Foley.

LaVonge, "Mamaw," loved baking, gardening, and spending time with her family, and chocolate (Thanks, Herb!)! Her wit and spunk will be greatly missed.

Pallbearers will be Herb Bass, Brad Walls, Zach Walls, Cody Walls, Matt Cosby, and Scott Curtis. Honorary pallbearers are Ted Foss, Eric Foss, Johnny Stallings, Jason Curtis, Skip Fraker, and Troy Harrison.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the cardiac nurses at SJRMC, the Beehive family, and two special hugs to Linda and Pat. You were truly a blessing! Herb, your friendship and caring were truly a gift from God.
