LaVon Mae Kuvaas was born June 15, 1937, in Crookston, MN, to Clarence and Nellie (Offerdahl) Miller.  The family moved to Moorhead, MN, when LaVon was a young girl.   She graduated from Moorhead High School in 1955.

 LaVon enjoyed her time at Hornbachers and continued to have coffee, celebrating birthdays, with her former coworkers.   She loved to knit, and all her family have personal Christmas stockings made by LaVon.  She enjoyed her houseplants, solving puzzles and taking in as many of the grandchildren’s activities as possible.  

LaVon spent some time traveling through several states, locating relatives and reestablishing those relationships.  She even managed to drive a school bus for Richards Transportation Service.
