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.
