LaVonne Lois Fischer was born Sept. 4, 1940 at home to Lee and Amanda (Paap) Williams of Russell. She was baptized and con­firmed in the Presbyterian faith. LaVonne was raised on the family farm until she was high school age, when her family moved to Tyler. She attended school there and also worked as an aide in the Tyler Hospital. When her family returned to the farm, she remained in Ty­ler to continue working and graduated from Tyler High School. After gradu­ation, LaVonne moved to Marshall and worked at the hospital until she married Richard Fischer in 1960 and moved back to Rus­sell. Their marriage was blessed with six children. The couple moved to Hazel Run and then to Wood Lake, where she ran the café for a few years. Through her years of employment she had many jobs, including Ben Franklin in Granite Falls, Midwest Continent in Cottonwood, driving truck, security guard in Tampa, Florida, and Project Turn­about in Granite Falls, just to name a few.
LaVonne was an avid animal lover and had many pets throughout her life. LaVonne loved music and was the only one in her family to play a musical instrument. In later years, she played the guitar with a small group that played for residents of the nursing homes.
LaVonne was always out­going and made friends easily. She had a wonderful sense of humor and loved being outdoors. Some of the happiest times were family camping adventures.
