She is survived by three children, William Ogden (Carol), Vicki (Robert) Olinger, both of La Crosse and Michael Sloan of Portland, Oregon.  She is also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She will be missed by her dog, Sophia.

Bonnie was preceded in death by a son, Larry Ogden in 2002 and a daughter, Bonnie Williams in 2018.

LaVonne’s wishes were to be cremated with burial with her mother at a later date.

A special thank you to my daughter, Vicki, who was always there for me and my many long appointments and her husband, Robert who took care of my yard and house.  Also a special thank you to Robert and Vicki, grandson Joseph Olinger and granddaughter Andrea and her husband Mark Parins II who spent many hours with me during Hospice Care.
