She was preceded in death by her husband, Forrest A. “Frosty” Uleman on May 15, 2007. She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Nancy and Ned Meier of Grand Island and Linda and Vic Tibbetts of Palmer; and one sister, Arlene Caspersen of Grand Island.

Lavina was baptized in her parents home and was later confirmed at the Dry Creek Lutheran Church. She grew up on the family farm and attended rural school in the Boelus area. She then moved to Omaha to work and met her husband on a blind date on March 21, 1942. They were married on May 23, 1942, at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Dannebrog. The couple first lived in Omaha and Kearney for a short while before moving to St. Paul, where they raised their two daughters, Nancy and Linda. Lavina worked at the Howard County Community Hospital in St. Paul for a number of years. The couple moved to Matelyn Retirement Community in St. Paul in 2006. After Frosty’s death she continued to live at Matelyn until 2 weeks ago. She was a charter member of Christ Lutheran Church. Lavina was a great cook and enjoyed gardening, flowers, crocheting, puzzles, reading, casino trips and attending the horse races. She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren dearly and looked forward to their visits. In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; son-in-law, Larry Mamot; one sister, Leona Balderson; and three brothers, Gilbert, Dale and Alvin Lemburg. Memorials are suggested to the family’s choice.
