The joy of mom’s life is her family, which includes her 23 grandchildren and 52 great-grandchildren.
LaVon still loves growing a beautiful garden and many have been the recipients of her hard work through the years. She has woven countless rugs on her pioneer loom, along with her many other homemaking skills. She has enjoyed serving in many callings as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
