MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR LAVONA HARTMAN POSTPONED
Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Wisconsin, the family of Lavona Hartman has determined it is in everyone’s best interest to postpone the memorial service for Lavona until the virus is under control.

Please stay safe.

Jerry Hartman and family

Lavona (Uhe) Hartman, born 12-22-1938, died peacefully at the hospital on September 26, 2020, with her family by her side.

Lavona was born in Elkhorn, WI and raised in Milton and Lima Center, WI.  She met Jerry Hartman while they both attended Whitewater High School, and they were married on August 24, 1957.  Lavona worked at Hawthorn Mellody while she raised her children.  She later opened a florist shop and a hair salon, before obtaining a real estate license and working for Tincher Realty until her retirement.

She will be dearly missed by her family, including her loving husband, Jerry; children Kim (Marc) Taylor, Kevin (Amy) Hartman, and Kori Hartman; her beloved grandchildren Douglas Wilde, Adam Taylor, Kate Hartman, and Gerry Hartman; brothers Ralph Uhe and Bill Uhe, and many wonderful nieces and nephews who meant the world to her.

Lavona was preceded in death by her parents, Leslie and Dorathy Uhe; brother Norman Uhe, and three sisters; Elores Hulen, Sharon Kitsembel, and Noreen Kesterson.

Her husband and family were the most important aspects of her life.  She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend to many.  She will be missed beyond measure and loved endlessly.

Lavona received excellent care at Mercy Hospital in Janesville through each step of her journey after being diagnosed with leukemia only recently. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorials to:                           Mercy Health Foundation   
Hospice and Palliative Care Department
903 Mineral Point Ave.
Janesville, WI 53548  

All Faiths Funeral and Cremation Services of Janesville is honored to be assisting the Hartman family. Online expressions of condolence and support may be made at: www.866allfaiths.com.
