It is with a very heavy heart that we inform everyone that LaVonne (Grosskopf) Hastings, 81 of rural Chaseburg, passed away peacefully the afternoon of Wednesday November 11, 2020 at home.  She is going to be so very missed, but she is now with her daughter Kelly, brother Jerry and many other loved ones.  Most importantly she is no longer in pain.

Survivors include her husband, Jerry; children, Jeff Hastings (Misti) of Viroqua, Jerilyn Futch (Julian Niemyjski) of Viroqua and Shawn Hastings (Gail) of Chaseburg; step daughter Lisa (Dave) DeSimone; son-in-law, Scott (Julie) Gaethke; 9 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren; 4 brothers, Cal (Sue), Kenny (Marilyn), Rollie (Kathy) and Terry (Evonne) Grosskopf and many nieces and nephews.
