On September 28, 1956, she was united in marriage to Roland Endelman at the Little Brown Church in Nashua. After living in Allison for about one year they moved to rural Charles City where they built their home.
LaVon worked at Clark Produce for a few years and then for the USDA for 21 years as a federal egg inspector at Hill and Dale Farms Egg Processing Plant in New Hampton.

Roland and LaVon also wintered in South Texas for 16 years.
