The funeral service for LaVonne Brintnall was on Friday, Jan. 10, 2020 at St. Joachim’s Catholic Church in Plainview, with Father William Becker officiating. Burial was in the St. Aloysius Catholic Cemetery in Elba.

LaVonne Irene (Heaser) Brintnall, Plainview, a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, passed away peacefully at the age of 89 on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020 at Green Prairie Rehabilitation Center in Plainview.
