LaVonne Ward

Sept. 26, 1927 — April 16, 2013

LaVonne A. Ward (Brennan) passed peacefully of natural causes in Placerville, Calif., on April 16, 2013. She was born in Indianapolis, Ind., on Sept. 26, 1927. She was a resident of El Dorado County since 1988.

LaVonne was preceded in death by her mother, Clela; and her father, Raymond Brennan; her brother, James Brennan; and son-in-law, Robert Lee. She was the beloved mother of Becki, Nancy (Jerry) and Jay (Laura). She was blessed with six grandchildren. They will miss her greatly; the crafts, the Christmas candy, and later on, the texts and Words with Friends games.

LaVonne lived her early life in Indianapolis before marrying and coming west to California. She lived in Upland, Ridgecrest and Costa Mesa, Calif., before moving to Northern California to be closer to her children. After retiring from Blue Shield in 1992 she became a full time grandmother, “Gram.” This job she did best, even as she had been a respected and capable secretary, book keeper and customer service representative for so many years. She enjoyed the Cameron Park Newcomers group, playing Rummikub with her friends, endless quilting, crocheting and crafting and traveling to Hawaii.

A private celebration of life for LaVonne is being planned for mid-May. Remembrances can be made to Snowline Hospice, as she was a longtime thrift shop volunteer in Cameron Park.
