Obituary for LaVonne Marie Joan Hatch


LaVonne Marie Joan Hatch died peacefully on May 13th, at The Pillars of Lakeville, surrounded by those who loved her.  She was 80 years old.  LaVonne was born on December 22, 1943 in Charles City, Iowa.


LaVonne graduated in 1961 from Charles City High School.  After high school she attended Mankato Commercial College specializing in an Executive Secretary career.  After graduating, she worked for 3M Company in St. Paul where she was a secretary for several engineers.  LaVonne met and married Kenneth Roy Hatch on November 10, 1962.  They lived in Mankato where LaVonne worked in the Audio-Visual Department at Mankato State while Ken finished college.  Ken’s career moved them to Elmore, then Slayton, and finally to the Twin Cities area.  LaVonne volunteered in many ways, supported Ken in doing kind things for his teachers, and held part time jobs.  She and Ken also owned and managed K’s educational services company and SOS seminars. LaVonne’s biggest joy was taking care of her 3 daughters, her home and yard.  The end of her career was working as an administrative assistant for Westaff Services in Minneapolis.  She retired in March of 2002 and remained as busy as ever with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.  LaVonne was in her element planning, organizing and doing things to help others and to make them feel special.


In 2003, Ken, LaVonne and their children and grandchildren built a log home on Blackwater Lake in Longville, MN.  They spent many days enjoying their family and friends during all seasons of the year.


LaVonne was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Roy Hatch and her parents LaVern and Elvina Muller. She is survived by three daughters, Kellie and Ken Lewis; Michelle Hatch; and Tracy and Jeff Davis. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren: Isaac, Mitchell, Courtland, Micaela, Freddy Jo, Sam, Rae, Mason, Alainna, Parker and Hayden; 8 great grandchildren: JaCobii, Leo, Avaley, Trinity, Genevieve, Elijah, Avrian and Estelle; her sister, Cynthia Muller and 2 nephews.


LaVonne wanted memorial contributions to help children and families in need.  Therefore, memorials will be given to The Lewis House, in Eagan, MN, in her name.
