GOSHEN — LaVonne (Fodge) Musser Lee was born Oct. 11, 1928, at Goshen to Dolpha and Ethel (Hoshaw) Fodge and died Nov. 18, 2020, at Greencroft in Goshen from complications of aorta stenosis compounded by severe dementia; she was 92.

Growing up in Goshen, she was a Goshen Redskin, attending Goshen High School. In high school she took up music, playing the clarinet, piano and singing, something she enjoyed her whole life. When at Greencroft she drew a crowd whenever she played popular tunes from the 1940s and ’50s (some earlier as well as some later) on the piano, something she did just days before her death. After graduating from high school in 1946 she attended International Business College in Fort Wayne. Her early jobs included StarCraft, when it was Star Tank and Boat, in Goshen, and Martin’s Feed in New Paris.
