Lavonda Stockton Seybert was born October 16, 1931, in Dade County Missouri to George and Flossie (Hall) Stockton. She passed away Friday, October 14, 2022, two days before her 91st birthday. Lavonda enjoyed life on the farm with her parents and older sister, Allene. All have preceded her in death.
Raised east of Greenfield, Missouri, she attended rural Stockton grade school and graduated from Greenfield High School in 1949.
Rollo Seybert and Lavonda Stockton were married April 15, 1949, and they shared over 60 years before his passing in April of 2010. Lavonda enjoyed being a farm wife and homemaker. She raised a large garden, helped in the hay fields, and will be remembered for the wonderful meals she fixed for the hay hands. She loved word games, crocheting, quilting, and her pets.
At the age of 12 she was saved and joined Sharon Baptist Church. While there she taught Sunday School and for many years was the pianist. Lavonda is survived by sons, Stan and Robin and daughter, Ronda (husband, Steve). She was a wonderful mother who enjoyed making their clothes and participating in their activities. She is also survived by grandchildren: Roshelle, Eric (wife Ashley) and Kelli and great granddaughter Annora.
After Rollo’s passing, Lavonda moved to Willard and joined the First Baptist Church. She made a new best friend, Claris, and they spent many hours going to garage sales, eating out, and visiting those in nursing homes.
All though she only had a few days at The Arbors at Lakewood, she was well cared for and treated with dignity and kindness. The family also wants to thank Terrace Hospice for their loving and professional care during a difficult time.
