What a lovely lady, always had a smile. She will be missed!!!
Who knew my absolute favorite “lunch lady” would have known her granddaughter, Robyn, and I would be best buds....? I won’t ever forget Lavonne telling me in line in the cafeteria, that she has a granddaughter that I should meet and that we’d get along so well. Lavonne, your wish came true! I honestly cannot think of a time my whole K-12 years at CAL, that Lavonne did not greet me with a smile. I know she cooked, prepared, and served our food with love....♥️
She will be missed
