    I’m so sorry to hear about LaVonne’s passing. I send prayers for comfort to her family. LaVonne was a colleague both during the University School years and during subsequent years as she continued teaching in the College of Businesss. LaVonne was always kind to me. I will remember her, fondly.

    We were surprised and sorry to hear about LaVonne’s recent passing. She was a true friend and was always respected by all people she came into contact with in her daily endeavors. We were colleagues in the Harrison College of Business at SEMO for many years and retired at the same time. We express our condolences and sympathy to the family.
