Our dear mother and grandmother, LaVon Hancock, will celebrate her 90th birthday with an open house, hosted by her children and grandchildren for family, friends and neighbors on Saturday, April 22, 2017, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the West Weber 1st Ward Cultural Hall. 4100 W. 900 South, West Weber

Mom was born April 24, 1927, to John A. (Jack) and Ruby Bailey Skeen. She was raised on a dairy farm in Taylor, Utah and made many happy memories with her younger brother, John LaMar and a sister, Jelean (Montgomery).

LaVon married the love of her life, Gene H. Hancock, on January 8, 1947. They were happily married almost 70 years, prior to Gene's passing in July 2016. They are the parents of five children: RaeDene (Brent) Hodson; Shauna Hadley (Ed) Smith; Karla (Dave) Hall; Jeana (Neal) Berube and Blake (Terri) Hancock. Eighteen grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren are proud to call her "Grandma."

Mom was a stay-at-home mother for many years, prior to entering the work force. She was employed at Bon Marche as a consultant in the china department for 10 years and later as a Title I aide for Weber School District, retiring after 10 years of service.

Mom has traveled to many parts of the country, has enjoyed bowling on leagues during the winter and golfing with dad and friends in the summer. She was involved in organizing a women's "club" that met monthly for 42 years and is an avid fan of the Utah Jazz. Mom loves parties and has hosted many for family and friends.

As a member of the LDS church, mom has served in various church callings and has served as a visiting teacher for over 60 years.

Our mom's life has been one of devotion to family, service and love. We congratulate and honor her on her 90th birthday.
