She was baptized at the Lutheran Church in Wood Lake and later confirmed at Trinity Lutheran in Boyd, Minnesota. LuVonne was united in marriage to Donald Priebe on December 27, 1953 also at Trinity Lutheran Church in Boyd. To this union there were three children born, Linda, Donita and Don. They lived in Sacred Heart before moving to the family farm near Clara City. Upon retiring they built a cabin on Big Chippewa Lake near Brandon, Minnesota. It was here that they built a beautiful home and hosted several gatherings with family and friends until Donald’s death in April 1987. LuVonne lived in several places before meeting Carroll Chapman and they lived together in Benson for 18 years until his passing. She eventually ended up living at Brookdale Assisted Living in Willmar. She loved everything about Brookdale and really considered it home. LuVonne enjoyed entertaining and cooking while living on the lake. At Brookdale she was known as their social butterfly. LuVonne wasn’t afraid to speak her mind and even suggested what they should have for a meal, most of the time it would include mashed potatoes, gravy and a creamed vegetable.
