LaVon Larson

LaVon Larson, 61, of Carrington, ND, died Saturday, December 10, 2016, at her home surrounded by her family.

LaVon Joyce Neumiller was born on June 24, 1955, in Harvey, ND, the daughter of Albert and Louise (Bruer) Neumiller. She attended school in Carrington.

LaVon worked various jobs throughout her life. One of her favorites was the time she spent bartending in the past few years. She loved all of her customers and made several great friends along the way.

She enjoyed spending time with her family. Her grandchildren and great-grandchild were her pride and joy. LaVon spent many hours on different craft projects; she loved sewing and had a gift to paint in great detail. She enjoyed camping and spending time at the lake. Some of her hobbies were collecting and refurbishing all kinds of furniture “fun-junk” and scrapbooking.
