Lavonne J Falk

January 19th, 1931 to September 8th, 2013
We celebrate the life of Lavonne J. Falk, 82, of Port Huron and Lexington, who passed away Sunday, September 8, 2013 in the Blue Water Hospice Home.

Lavonne was born January 19, 1931 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She was married to Carl S. Falk on October 1, 1949 and they shared 45 years together until his passing in 1994.

She is survived by her children, Kathleen Falk (Daniel Goyette), Michael Falk, Rebecca Falk (Tom Rodenbaugh) and Matthew (Nancy) Falk; grandchildren, Matthew, Amy (Jason), and Rachel Goyette; and great-grandchildren Joseph and Alexandra Goyette; a brother, Robert (Phyllis) Ashpole, a sister, Pamela Naplin, and her sons Eric, Lee, and Mark Naplin; and many other nieces and nephews.

Lavonne was a Registered Nurse and worked at Port Huron Hospital for several years. Her crafts and gift shop in downtown Port Huron was a showcase for her many creative talents. She was a member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Lexington and St. Paul Lutheran Church in Port Huron.

Lavonne was a generous supporter of many cultural and social service organizations. She had an adventurous spirit and a passion for travel that she shared with her family. A trip to the Rose Bowl; several visits to San Francisco; tours of Europe, Gettysburg, Washington, DC, and Branson; annual family camping trips -- all were treasured highlights of her travels.

She was connected to the world via the Internet long before most of her peers. She never met a word game she didn’t like. Lavonne loved music and musical theatre and her bookshelves were a reflection of her passion for reading. She was an avid fan of NASCAR and “her driver” Mark Martin. She believed in the power of positive thinking and that you could do anything you put your mind to.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, September 13, 2013 in the Pollock-Randall Funeral Home with visitation beginning at 1 p.m. The Reverend Barry Sheldon of St. Matthew Lutheran Church will officiate.

Those planning an expression of sympathy, please consider Blue Water Hospice Home, Blue Water Habitat for Humanity, or St. Matthew Lutheran Church.

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children: to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
