Read more about the life story of LaMoyne and share your memory.
LaMoyne Jevne, 90, passed away peacefully on August 30th surrounded by his loving family. LaMoyne was born in Eau Claire WI in 1933 to Kenneth P. and Agnes V. (Holt) Jevne. LaMoyne was married to Agnes (Holbrook) Jevne for 67 years. He is survived by daughter Katherine Clark of Holly Lake Ranch, TX, son Scott Jevne (Susanne) of Eau Claire, WI, daughter Michelle Burton (Jeff) of Ooltewah, TN. Five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. He is survived by sister Loretta Estu of Upland, CA, brothers, Frank of Weyerhauser, WI, Roger (Ann) of Menomonie, WI, and brother-in-law Roger Bollinger of Eau Claire, WI. He is preceded in death by his parents, wife Agnes, sister Carol Bollinger, brother-in-law Bob Estu, sister-in-law Carol Joy Jevne, and son in law Randy Clark.
LaMoyne's Navy career took him and his family to various duty stations all over the country, but his heart was always in his hometown of Eau Claire, WI. In 2017, he returned to the place he grew up, and that instilled in him the values that made him a successful military man, husband, and father. Since his return to Eau Claire, he has been a staunch supporter of the Chippewa Valley Veterans Tribute through his donations and advocacy. He believes in the mission of the tribute and his support is helping to make the tribute a reality for the community. Among the many veterans honored today, none stand taller than LaMoyne Jevne. He is a veteran whose service continues long past his time in the Navy. He is the epitome of all the veterans that have made our freedom possible.
LaMoyne retired from the U.S. Navy after 25 years of service. On his last tours of duty as an instructor he was flown to different ships around the world to teach fueling of aircraft. LaMoyne retired out of Miramar Naval air station San Diego as leading Chief Petty Officer. LaMoyne always said, “God and Country had always been good to Him." He tried to repay by giving lectures to children and adults on flag etiquette. LaMoyne has handed out over 3,000 hand flags to children in every State that he lived.
LaMoyne was a supporter and advocate of the Chippewa Valley Veterans Tribute and asked that memorials and tributes be directed there in his name.
A memorial service will take place at Rock Creek Lutheran Church, N1101 810th St, Mondovi, WI 54755 on Saturday, September 23 at 10 am. There will be no public visitation prior to the service.
