LaVeeda was 83 years old when she died after a long battle with cancer on October 29, 2011 at home surrounded by family. LaVeeda was a voracious reader. She enjoyed every opportunity to travel visiting family and friends. She loved sports and liked nothing better than to watch a good football game.
