LaVonne E. Hatting

LaVonne Elsie Hatting, 93, of Rochester, MN passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 1, 2022. At the time of her passing, she was surrounded by her family, in her own home.

LaVonne was born September 22, 1928 in Luverne, MN to Ole Lockrem and Ella Adelia (Peterson). She grew up on the family farm S.E. of Adrian, MN. She graduated from Adrian High School in 1946 and then worked for TriState Insurance Company.

She was united in marriage to Edward Frank Hatting on April 30, 1947 after his service to our country in WWII. They made their home initially in Luverne MN where they welcomed their daughter, Mary Ann before moving to Rochester.

They began a family owned grocery business in Rochester: initially leasing Carl’s Market, and then in 1967 they purchased a corner lot on the South East Rochester ‘belt line” where they built Ed’s Pik Quick Market. LaVonne was employed at Mayo Clinic after the grocery was sold secondary to Ed’s failing health. She volunteered for the Rochester Methodist Hospital Auxiliary following her retirement from Mayo. She was an active member of St. Francis Catholic Church for many years.

LaVonne is survived by her daughter, Mary Ann (Thomas ) Ryan of Byron, MN; granddaughter, Colleen Ryan (Matthew) Browne of Maplewood, MN; grandson, Michael Ryan of St. Cloud, MN; two great-grandsons, Benjamin and Jacob Browne; sister, Judy Christian of Edina, MN; and numerous nieces and nephews.

LaVonne enjoyed travel after retirement. She enjoyed reading, baking, bird watching, and she was an avid dog lover. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and friends, especially with her great grandchildren.

She aged with grace and dignity as she managed the challenges of her health and was able to remain in her home.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, grandson, Brenndan Ryan, Byron, MN; sisters, Elaine Myers, Longmont, CO and Evelyn Gladhill, Bemidji, MN; and brother, Henry Hanson Jr., Adrian, MN.

A Funeral Mass for LaVonne will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 6, 2022 at the Co-Cathedral of St. John The Evangelist in Rochester, MN, with Rev. Msgr. Gerald Mahon officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the Mass.

Please note that face masks are required by the church to attend this funeral Mass in alignment with Covid protocols.

Memorials are preferred to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation or Mayo Clinic Hospice.

Mary Ann (and Tom), my sincerest condolences to you and your family in the loss of your mother, LaVonne.  What a sweet, kind lady she was.  I know you will miss her terribly, but there is no doubt your memories of her will carry you through until you meet her and Brenndan again someday - along with all your other family members that have gone before. I was marveling at your resemblance to her - especially in her younger picture!  So pretty!! Take care and God Bless, Mary

Oh, so so sad for your loss. Your Mom was such a calm, kind, elegant woman! It was such an honor to know her through the years of our lives and various stages! Losing our Mom’s earthly presence is a great loss and I still grieve the loss of my Mom. A wise friend of mine, at the time of my Mom’s death, shared with me that grieving the loss of our Mom’s comes and goes in waves. It is so true…she has a place in your heart that no one else can fill. Love all of you Ryan’s. Would be at her Memorial Service if we were in MN! 💕

I shall miss our long telephone chats..Aunt Vonnie was such a beautiful woman, inside and out.  May she rest in peace.  I will love you forever, dear Vonnie.

LaVonne was a colleague at Mayo whom I will always remember as a kind, soft-spoken and caring woman.  My condolences to her family on the loss of their loved one and such a fine woman.
