March 26, 1934 – March 22, 2020
LaVon Wayman age 85 passed away peacefully in her son's home in Lake Stevens, Washington on Sunday March 22, 2020. LaVon was born March 26, 1934 in Rupert, Idaho to Nellie Mae Thompson and Joseph Webber Perkins.
The family moved around and ended up in Nampa, Idaho where she met and married the love of her life, Howard Wayman. They were married for 57 years and had five children; Candy, David, Kathleen, James and Tracy. When they were married they owned a dairy farm in Idaho but later moved to Burns, Oregon. She worked as a nurses aid at the local hospital and nursing home. When the mill closed they moved to Waldport, Oregon where they had a successful contracting business. Upon retirement they became "snow birds" in Arizona until settling in Notus, Idaho.
She loved gardening especially her irises and gladiolus which were always so colorful and reading books by her favorite author, Nora Roberts.
LaVon was preceded in death by her husband Howard, daughter Candy (Pool), son-in law Edward Pool, sons James and Tracy and grandson Jeromy.
She is survived by son David (Lorraine), daughter Kathleen, grandchildren David Pool, Shannon (Josh) Dreyer, Brandon Wayman, Howard Wayman, Tara Wayman, Seth Wayman and seven great grandchildren.
