LaVern Lillian (Sanders) McRann was born on June 27, 1935 in Clintonville, daughter to the late Leon & Martha (Schoess) Sanders. She attended school in Clintonville and graduated from Clintonville High School in 1953. She was married two years later on June 28, 1955 to James “Jim” E. McRann; the couple had dated since their school days. LaVern worked for A&W, Clintonville; Hansen Glove Factory, Clintonville; Georgia Pacific, New London; and F.W.D Seagrave, Clintonville. She also worked diligently along with Jim on their farm and raised a family. They were able to travel to the Gulf of Mexico and to various places around the country, but really enjoyed the time spent up at their vacation home and property near Elcho, WI. In her younger years, LaVern played many different instruments and earned first-chair in her high school orchestra; she was also a gifted singer. She enjoyed trying her luck at the casino, a good game of Bingo, and watching both Poker and figure-skating on television.
