Lavonia was a friend to all. I worked with her at WCU in the Accounts Payable office and will forever be grateful to her for stepping in to fill in for me when I had to go out on unexpected maternity leave. She was such a joy to work with. She will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Lavonia. Prayers for the family.
