Lavina was such a sweet lady. When I began my career at Shippensburg Area School District, she always had a smile and a kind word. I will always have a high regard for her. My sympathies to the family.

We have many wonderful memories of Lavina. Camping, the Rebekah Lodge, church, her acute bookkeeping skills, a card playing partner and friend to my mother, and a wonderful Christian women to name just a few.
