Lavina Louise McKinley
Lavina Louise McKinley, 55, went home to be with the Lord, February 10, 2021. She lived life to the fullest and on her own terms. She loved long walks, especially in the rain, coloring, reading romance and horror novels, dancing and working on cars. She took pride being different in a world where everyone wanted to be the same. She began her battle with cancer in 2012 and remained positive through out the entire process saying the refused to be a victim and wanted to be remembered as a fighter and survivor. She continued numerous trial treatments, saying that regardless of how they affected her if she was able to help save someone else later in life then it was worth it. Lavina stood a mere 5 foot 1 and weighed 110 pounds but the strength she possessed was immeasurable. She will forever be remembered as the strong, beautiful woman she was.
Lavina is preceded in death by her husband, Dwain Maurer; grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. John Jasinski and Mr. & Mrs. Helmuth Stindt.
She is survived by her loving parents, Harold and Joyce Stindt; daughter, Marinda Ann Weber; grandchildren, Matthew Garcia, Jaelyn Garcia and Jonae Lopez; brother, Kevin Stindt.

I will miss you my sister. You always were a fun, loving, gentle, tough cookie. You are totally living in Mandy. I will always treasure all the times I had with you as teenagers and as adults in my mind and heart. May you rest in peace.
