Lavonne Mattin

June 5, 1933 - August 4, 2013


It is with deep sadness that we  announce Lavonne’s sudden passing at Royal Jubilee Hospital.  Predeceased by her granddaughter Michelle, her 1st husband Ronald Valleau and her 2nd husband Ronald Mattin.  Survived by her children – Bill (Joan) Valleau, Rhonda (Dick) Yano, Sheila (Steve) Cowie, Maria (John) Elzinga, stepsons Randy (Cathy) Mattin, & Jerry Mattin, also her sister Norma (Kurt) Kloss, her sister Linda Bradshaw and her brother Bob (Melanie) Bradshaw, as well as her grandchildren Maureen, Cory, Niki, Christopher, Jason, Nathan, David, Jessica, Jennifer, Cameron, Katie, Spencer,  Brody, Lindsay and her great grandchildren Tracy, Jessa and Jailyn, her close friend and companion Len Hearsey and her dog (James) Cagney. 

Mom was the matriarch of her family.  She was a soft-spoken person who could suddenly turn into a feisty tiger if she felt the need.  Mom embodied community service by helping many, many people on a one-on-one basis over her lifespan.  She developed  loving, supportive relationships  with her children and grandchildren.  She took great pleasure in gardening and the outdoors.  She was happiest in the company of family and friends and enjoyed her summers at the lake.  The family would like to thank all who helped on Saturday night at Honeymoon Bay resort, including Kelly and John Woywitka, Donald Elzinga, Mike Peerboom, the Honeymoon Bay Fire Department, the staff at CDH and at Royal Jubilee Hospital for the wonderful care Mom received.

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Lavonne may do so to the Duncan SPCA. 

Service will be held at 1:30 pm, on Friday, August 9th, 2013 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 531 Herbert Street, Duncan, BC.  Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

A dear friend and a good neighbour. We shared so many laughs and some tears over the past years, your wicked sense of humour was infectious. Always caring about others, always willing to help, you will be missed.
